Motorcycle Live 2022

19 – 27 November NEC, Birmingham

CAM is considering organizing a day trip to visit the 2022 MotorcycleLive show at the NEC, Birmingham. The proposal is to have a group ride from the Cambridge area (with a breakfast stop along the way), arriving at the NEC just before midday with participants then free to browse the show at their leisure. A group return will be scheduled to leave the NEC at around 4pm, but participants will be at liberty to return independently if they prefer

Tickets for any day of the show, if bought in advance, cost £22 each online. If we can get a group of 10 or more participants, tickets are available for £19.80 each. In all cases a £2 ordering fee applies to each order. Ticket protection insurance is also available (which covers, among other things, illness and adverse weather conditions) for £3.25 per ticket. If you leave it to buy your ticket on the day at the NEC, it will cost £27. Motorcycle parking at the NEC is free (and in a covered area)

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)
