The Pop Outs are a branch of the Club aimed
mainly for Club members who have retired or do not have to work on Thursdays.
There is usually a Pop Out once every 3 weeks starting at 10.30am (starting point to be
from the Club house at Rushmere Sports Centre). The
ride is normally around 40 miles finishing at a pub or restaurant for lunch.
If you wish to join in these rides you must phone the ride leader before 9.30am
on the morning of the ride.
Who is the leader, and their phone number, can
be found on the "Whats On " page of the Review.
If you do not have a review please email for
details of the next Popout.

Pop Out Xmas Lunch Weeping Willow, Barrow,
BSE. December 19th 2013
Well it`s that time of year again, time for our
Christmas Pop Out. As usual, this lunch run is planned and arranged by Fred
Cotton. For several years now Fred has set up a really nice day out for us,
this year was certainly no exception. Fifteen of us left the club on our
bikes with Lennie in his car in really nice sunny weather and headed
directly to The Cedars Hotel in Stowmarket for a coffee stop where Alan,
Ron, Phil, Frank and Pat Sloan were waiting for us when we arrived. After
coffee we headed along the A14 turning off just the other side of Bury St.
Edmunds for The Weeping Willow at Barrow. On arrival at the pub we found
Peter Frank Eric and Bob waiting for us, John from Bures had unfortunately
had to cancel owing to illness, there should also have been seven friends
from Essex there, but unfortunately one of them broke down and the others
were delayed either looking for him or helping him, however eventually all
arrived in time for the excellent lunch served very well by the landlady and
her staff. The meal was followed by coffee and Lou our only regular female
Pop Out rider had made two Christmas cakes to celebrate the occasion, thank
you Lou it was very kind of you and the cakes were delicious.
Thank you Fred, we are all very aware that these
trips are only successful because of the amount of work and planning that
you put into them.
