Sunday ride to Debden Barns (November 19th)

Many thanks to ride leader Mark Fox for his description, reproduced below, of next Sunday’s Group-organised ride to Debden Barns.

Starting from  McDonalds Caxton Gibbet we head south on the A1198 before turning to Steeple Morden and on to Therfield, crossed the A505 on our way. After Therfield we cross the A10 heading to Barkway, where we drop south to Hare Street and then make our way across country, via Clavering & Newport, to Debden Barns for breakfast at the Elder Street Café (appropriately located alongside not one, but two, antiques shops)

After breakfast we head towards Saffron Walden and Wendens Ambo to join the lovely B1039 to Barley. There we will turn for home (passing through too many villages, so bask in the glow of the first two thirds of the trip). The route is via Newton, Haslingfield & Comberton before a short burst back up the A1198 to Caxton Gibbet

The roads are suitable for a late autumn ride whatever the weather. Mindful of the need to keep Catherine happy (she’ll be shadowing tailer Nick Harwood) I cut out the gnarly sections suggested by my SatNav (including an actual green lane and an unfordable ford!)

Update: Keith Tremmer’s ride to the Birmingham NEC
is now scheduled for Friday 24th November

The UK’s flagship motorcycle show, MotorcycleLive is supported by the very best of the industry and this year upward of 25 major bike, accessory & clothing manufacturers will be represented. The show prides itself on offering the first UK viewing of all newly launched models and there will be bikes of all genres & ages to be sat on, inspected, photographed & discussed with the exhibitors

MotorcycleLive 2023 runs from 18th to 26th November, and Keith Tremeer has once again proposed an outing for CAM Members to the show. Read on for Keith’s description …

The small group heading to MotorcycleLive have settled on a date: Friday 24th November. We will depart the Cambridge area at 8:00am, taking a scenic route to Birmingham (with a breakfast stop along the way) to arrive at the NEC by midday, when everyone will be free to browse the show at their leisure. A group return ride (on a more direct route, but not the M6!) will leave at around 4:00pm – but participants will be free to return independently if they prefer. The total distance is expected to be ~190 miles
Please click here to email me (Keith) ASAP if you would like join this rideout. Tickets cost £25 when purchased online, which includes a £2 booking fee (this rides to £31.00 when purchased on the day). Tickets are valid for any day, so we have the flexibility to choose (collectively or individually) the best day of the week in terms of weather.
