Information

Norfolk TOMCC is one of the oldest branches in the Triumph Owners Club. There have been a long and distinguished list of past members who have seen enormous changes in technology and machinery. We have a healthy membership and an active program of events each year. Norfolk is a great place - a bit flat - and jolly big, which makes it difficult for some far flung members to come to regular club meetings. We reach out to those and encourage everyone to join in where possible and watch for ride outs and events which come near you. If you have ideas please get in touch with us.

We have evening meetings on the first and third Tuesday of each month at The Worlds End pub in Mulbarton. Meetings are social and informal and we welcome you to come and meet us.
We organise ride outs to various locations, we participate in local and national events, including overseas trips. Winter events include talks and presentations by guest speakers and ten pin bowling challenges.

 

Location

The World's End Public House, Norwich Road, Mulbarton, NR14 8JT - Meets: 1st & 3rd Tuesday monthly 8pm for 8.30pm

 

Events

the 2018 diary is work in progress. We will list the planned events here, emphasising that details are not necessarily complete yet. Keep checking our Facebook page and this site as more details emerge.
WE WELCOME YOUR IDEAS FOR ADDITIONAL EVENTS.

2018

February

Ten Pin Bowling
The annual inter branch competition with our neighbouring branch Suffolk. You roll a big heavy ball at the other end of the "alley" and knock over sticks. Try it. WENT WELL AND I THINK WE WON.

March

Annual Branch Meal
In the past our Xmas meal, but March is cheaper and easier to book. Historically the regular attendees at club meetings enjoy a meal at a local venue. Branch members who may be interested should check our Facebook page for exact details and contact the secretary well in advance. Today our venue has been burned down .... TBA

RIDE - Mabelthorpe Sand Races.
An exciting event with various bike classes racing on the beach at Mabelthorpe. Last year Guy Martin turned up. Check Our Facebook page for detail of the meeting point and times for our ride. DOESNT SEEM FAIR THAT THIS IS ALSO CANCELLED ! The MiniBeast bringing snow and heavy winds meant that this ride is cancelled for safety reasons.

Norfolk Branch AGM
Time to review the past year and vote to elect the branch officers for 2018/19. All members are welcome. Meet at "The Worlds End" pub, Mulbarton, near Norwich at 8.00pm on 20th March. ***After a hard fought contest for every position, pretty much the same team carry on except that Jim takes over from Colin as secretary.

April

Wrinkly Wednesday
Rudely named regular event aimed at the retired who have free time on a weekday. This month a Norfolk ride from Mulbarton to Cromer with a planned stop at the "Blue Skies Café" Meet at The Worlds End pub by 10am. As always, if you are interested give us a call or post on our Facebook page.

RIDE - East Kirkby Air Museum
Saturday ride out Meet 8.30am Thickthorn Services Norwich then on to Pullover roundabout Kings Lynn. After that we will probably get lost.

Ten-pin Bowling
A social event at Namco Bowling, Bowthorpe, Norwich. Always good fun with a selection of Strikes and Gutters. Come along for a chat and a game. Meet 7pm for 7.30 start.

May

Trifest Somerset
National event which you should not miss. Details in Nacelle for everyone.

Wrinkly Wednesday

RIDE - Wymondham to Wymondham
A re-run of Geoff's branch ride from Wymondham (Windam) in Norfolk to similarly named Wymondham (Wy mundam) in Liecs. The whimsy got the better of him. Sunday ride - Details to follow.

RIDE - Fish and Chips
Tom historically leads a Tuesday evening ride out to the coast somewhere for his essential Cup of Tea, and fish and chip supper all round. Route and venue closely guarded secret - but not too far. Start at Mulbarton and home in the dark-ish.

June

RIDE AND HOLIDAY - Scotland
A BIGGEE. Jim will lead a holiday ride into Scotland, touring and B&B stops. The route and venues are currently being organised and all details will be added as they are confirmed.

August

Wrinkly Wednesday
Mid week ride around, taking in Yaxham Waters near Dereham for refreshments. August sunshine, wonderful scenery, great company. Well you never know, it could happen.

NORFOLK BRANCH BIKE SHOW
Our second branch organised bike show in the grounds of "The Worlds End" pub in Mulbarton. Last year was a big success with just a few niggles, like the BBQ never turned up and a violent thunderstorm absolutely drenched those who packed the stuff away and got caught as we left the premises. This year things are guaranteed. Do come along and say hello any time during the day.

Wimbotsham Bike Show
The 29th Fenman Classic Bike Show. Held at Wimbotsham near Downham Market. See the online pages via Google for information and pictures from previous events. Our Norfolk Branch ride details will be confirmed nearer the date

September

Wrinkly Wednesday
The midweek ride round Norfolk taking in Norfolk Lavender near Kings Lynn. Our elderly retired and friends will be attracted to the smell of lavender and frying bacon. They were last time we went.

October

Copdock Bike Show
The 27th annual Copdock Motorcycle Show at Trinity Park, Ipswich. Always a great event and well supported. Our neighbouring branch in Suffolk have an impressive stand and we shall try to scrounge a cup of tea off them. Our ride details to follow nearer the date.
