Suffolk 100 Pre 31 and Girder Fork Run

The weather was glorious with clear blue skies and rising temperatures which brought out 15 machines and 2 sidecar passengers.  A keen getaway at 11.00 was advised due to the Pink Ladies Tractor Race which was also starting at the 100BG Museum and travelling some of the same route - no one wanted to get stuck behind 123 tractors!

The morning route of 35miles travelled through Fressingfield, Stradbroke, Framlingham, Cransford, Peasonhall heading to Laxfield for a lunch stop at The Royal Oak.  Brian Wood riding the clubs AJS succumbed to machine problems and had to be rescued by backup supplied by Pete McNamara.

After a refreshing stop for lunch the return route of 21miles went through Metfield, Mendham, Homersfield and Brockdish.

At the 100th Bomb Group Museum riders voted for the ‘most desirable bike’ and Nick and Pete (organisers) decided on two other awards.  Awards given were in the form of coffee mugs in the guise of vintage oily cans, a nice change to the normal silver pots.

Award winners were:
Brian Wood for his bravery and determination in riding a flat tanker for the first time, only to be let down by the machine.
Val Cartmell for her undying enthusiasm to help others.
Most Desirable Bike: Pete Bennett’s 1928 AJS K1.

We would like to thank everyone who helped with sign on, recovery and our hosts for the day Carol and Ron at the 100th Bomb Group Museum.
