TRUDGE 7 ON THE HORIZON


AND IT'S TANDEMONIUM!


'ALL STEEDS WELCOME'

By both our reporters: Ffronte and Bacque.

"WHY ON EARTH DID I BUY THAT TANDEM?"  An oft-heard remark in the Scole Inn by our members who got a bit cash-happy and splashed out on that Freddie Grubb Tandem at an Auction as "No one seemed to be bidding" only to find that one needs a stoker to sit behind to obtain maximum enjoyment from such a device.

All very well, until your unfortunate gastric problem results in a lack of volunteers to carry out said rear mounted task.  That, or the fact that the cold realisation that we didn't have any friends to ask in the first place has caused the executive board of The Suffolk Trudge to encourage a few Tandems to turn out for the Seventh Suffolk Trudge on October the Sixth of this year.

NATURISTS AND CYCLING

The route is shorter (about 20 miles) and ends at Saint Peter's Brewery, arrangements are being made to find another suitable pub for those all-important pub lunches nearby.

Tandems are not compulsory at all, as usual we will be encouraging any old bikes, the weirder and curioser the better.

Regular subscribers to The 'Spoke' will be used to getting their route maps with each issue, but it has been decided to only make these available at the start with the Tea and Buns.  This is partly to stop cheating, but - unashamediy - mainly to save cash.

MAKE THEM STOP, MUMMY

We openly suggest that anyone with old bits of bike to sell brings them along as we seldom leave on time.  The time we would like to meet is 10:00am for a 10:30 departure, there is ample parking at the start which is, as ever at:
Marlinspike Hall, Walpole, Halesworth, Suffolk.
You can call 01 98 67 84 664 if you think you may be late, maps will be left for those who are.


Ensure you get your copy of The Twisted Spoke before anyone else.  Place a regular order with your newsagent, or telephone to be placed on the mailing list to Cally: 01 98 67 84 664
