20th December – two rides!

With promising weather and two outings to choose from, why not email Catherine now for a place on the last Sunday ride of 2020? Join either Tom Jacobs & Keith Bartlett on a departure from Milton, or Keith Tremeer & Ian Dunckley on an outing from Fourwentways

Tom outlines the ride from Milton

Traveling up the A10 to Stretham, we then follow the A1123 towards Soham and on to Prickwillow. From there we will ride up towards Hilgay and choose an extended route (adds 20 miles) to Stoke Ferry, or head straight to our rest stop at Baytree of Hilgay. The restaurant offers hot drinks & breakfasts, and has outside table seating and toilet facilities

The return ride takes us through the fens and on to Chatteris, along a favourite twisty stretch of road to our end point at Morrisons Saint Ives. Our finish time will be around 1:00pm, having covered ~80 miles

Keith outlines the ride from Fourwentways

Leaving Fourwentways, we’ll skirt south of Linton and then take to the countryside, passing through Withersfield, Lidgate, Barrow & Kentford before arriving at Fordham, where we have a reservation in the outside area of the coffee shop at Simpson Garden Centre. Free-standing heaters will be to hand for those feeling chilly, and toilet facilities will be available on-site

Our return trip will take us through Stretham, Earith & Godmanchester, before finishing at the A14 Cambridge Services, where we should arrive before 1:30pm. Total distance ~85 miles

Events Co-ordinator – Newsletter 2020

Committee members all join together to wish you all a happy Christmas. We all hope for good things in the New Year, and look forward to seeing you all in 2021

i2i Academy, June 2021

For the fourth year running members have the opportunity to finesse their riding skills on the MC1 & MC2 courses run by i2i Motorcycle Academy. In 2021 these will take place at RAF Coltishall, with dates provisionally set for Monday 21 & Tuesday 22 June 

If we book before Christmas we can secure the 2020 price of £270 (£288 thereafter). To qualify for an additional 10% group discount, we need to book a minimum of 10 places (7 members already registered their interest!)

The CAM Committee is subsidising the 2-day course for members who have not attended previously, reducing the price further. With early booking, group discount & club subsidy, the cost to members is £213 per person for both days. Members who have previously received the subsidy are welcome to attend again, but will pay £243. To secure these dates & prices I will need to firm up numbers soon, so if you would like to attend please email me (Catherine) using this link
