The thirty-first Twisted Spoke

There are some more pictures of tyre centres, and we’ve added the so-called 27½ tyre sizes to our guide.

Let battle commence

Saturday August 9th: TA East/V-CC trikes-only speed-judging.

The Millennium path out of Halesworth is just TOO GOOD not to put several trikes along.  As a there-and-back it is nearly a mile long, through stunning water meadows over cattle grids and through tight bends.  The surface is fantastic.  Each trike would have two runs, and the person whose times are closest wins the prize, may make a combined age-of-machine/age-of-rider handicap, and then all comers for the evening, two or three wheels.

We'd do it at about 3.00pm on Saturday afternoon and use the Focus Cafe as our base (great coffee) after which we could all ride out to: Wisset Plough, Rumburgh Buck, Laxfield Low House, ending at Cratfield Poacher, for supper, a round ride of about 20 miles.


The Railway Tavern at Mellis has been agreed as the destination on August 7th and in September we’ll go to Creeting Highwayman ... so that completes the meeting programme for 2014

Cross Ways

The V-CC Flat Section has decided to stop moaning about the bad beer at the Scole Inn and meet somewhere else instead.  The Crossways Inn in Scole will be the favoured establishment.  Note also, that when it is planned to ride further afield than Hoxne or Rushall, it’s suggested you turn up a little earlier ... 6:30, say.


Since ‘local public hostelries and their ales’ are specifically mentioned in the society’s aims, we’ve added a Pubs & Bikes page.

Aims of the Society

The pursuance of cycling in the leisurely fashion of days gone by.  The appreciation and conservation of the countryside and its way of life.  The enjoyment of local public hostelries and their ales.

The D&DGCS is a sort of ‘shareware’ cycling society.  Try before you buy.  Anyone is welcome to take part in our events; come along and see if you enjoy it.
