Monthlies

The Railway Tavern at Mellis has been suggested as the destination on August 7th.  Assuming that:

  1. This is agreed, and
  2. From October, we revert to the Bells,

This only leaves our September venue to be decided.

Airfields

Details of the V-CC Flat Section’s WW2 Airfields Ride have been announced: the start is from ‘Andrews’, Bank Street, Pulham Market, IP21 4TG.  Meet from 10am for an 11am start.

Women’s Tour

A Women's tour stage race takes place this May and two of the five stages are close to us.  Stage 3 on 9th May starts from Felixstowe and goes to Clacton.  Ipswich Transport Museum has been asked to stage a display of cycles from 10:00am to 2:00pm at Felixstowe (the stage starts at 11:00pm).  The final stage on 11th May starts at Harwich at 10:00am and finishes at Bury St Edmunds (arrival expected at 12:50pm).  The route passes through Rattlesden so we're quite likely to be at the Bells that day.

(Motor)Bike show

Rattlesden Five Bells has a Bike Show from noon to 4:00pm on 18th May.  It's a motorbike show but, as the Bells is our HQ...

V-CC Flat Section

Twisted Spoke 30 has arrived.

Tyres

We’ve made a few tweaks to our infamous guide to tyre sizes.

Pubs

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.
