Coltishall i2i course: Terry’s blog

Many thanks to Terry Jacobs for his entertaining Condensed Coltishall blog, detailing his experience on an i2i Motorcycle Academy course recently. Terry was just one of eleven CambsIAM members who attended the course in June at the former RAF base in Coltishall, Norfolk. As in previous years, i2i ran the course exclusively for our members, with attendance subsidised by CambsIAM

Aldeburgh all-day ride, July 11th

Join Janet Pinion’s all-day ride to Aldeburgh on Sunday 11th July! A Suffolk native, Janet leads riders through lesser known villages to Aldeburgh for lunch at the seaside. Janet sketches out her plan below…

We’ll set out at 8:30am from the car park at Tesco, Ely. We’ll be heading east, largely keeping off the main roads and passing instead through picturesque Suffolk villages. After a short break at Coddenham Services we’ll rejoin the B1078 turning off at Tunstall, past Snape Maltings on to Aldeburgh
Hopefully we’ll have parked up in time to be first in the lunchtime queue which always forms at the fish’n’chip shop. After a fish’n’chip lunch overlooking the sea, it’s a short stroll to the ice-cream parlour where 34 mouth-watering flavours await…
We’ll head home via the A1120, stopping at Stonham Barns where those who still have an appetite can enjoy a cuppa and a cake. The ride will finish in Stretham in the late afternoon

Please note: this ride open to full members only (pillions welcome)
Numbers are limited – email Janet now to reserve your place
