8th October: our final all-day ride of 2023

Had Keith Tremeer not postponed this outing to Sunday 8th October it would have taken place during one of the hottest spells on record, but instead it’s shaping up to be a glorious autumn ride! Keith has updated his plan to avoid arriving back after dark, and outlines the revised schedule below –

The ride will depart at 8:30am from Tesco Milton, heading northwest towards Mildenhall, then north to Downham Market for our breakfast stop after ~90 minutes on the road at Arbuckles
We subsequently follow scenic country lanes eastwards to Swaffham, then head southeast through Watton, Harleston & Fressingfield to arrive at our lunch stop, the Dennington Queen, at around 1pm (having covered ~110 miles since leaving Milton)

After feasting on the roast lunch or other tempting items from the Sunday menu we’ll make a quick re-fuelling stop, then return westwards through Otley Bottom & Needham Market, until we reach our refreshment stop in Lavenham – afternoon tea or ice cream anyone?
Our final leg will take us through Long Melford, Keddington & Balsham to reach Fourwentways services, with an ETA of 6pm. The ride ends here, 70 miles after lunch and a total journey of ~180 miles

Departs: Tesco Milton 8:30am  |  Ends: Fourwentways ~6:00pm
Full Members only  |  Limited to 8 participants (including pillions)

Sunset supper

Many thanks to Keith Tremeer (accompanied by pillion Maria Luiza) for leading 10 bikers on his early evening fish’n’chip run to Hunstanton last Thursday. Keith cleverly steered around the showers and Catherine, Chris, Graham, Keith, Mick, Nigel, Patrick, Pete, Phil, Stephen & Terry happily enjoyed an al fresco supper taking in the view over the Wash. Night-time fell during the ride home, so riders bade each other farewell under the carpark lights in Huntingdon. A wonderful outing!
