Thank you for contacting us. You should receive an answer in due course.
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.
The World's End Public House, Norwich Road, Mulbarton, NR14 8JT - Meets: 1st & 3rd Tuesday monthly 8pm for 8.30pm
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.
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.
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.
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. Went very well and only thick mist prevented us seeing anything.
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. Nobody got lost and a very successful ride out.
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.
National event which you should not miss. Details in Nacelle for everyone.
The retired or otherwise available, mid week ride. Over the border to Suffolk and stop at "Krazy Horse Customs" in Bury St Edmunds. Turned out briilliant weather, scenic ride, garish custom bikes and a burger. Great stuff.
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 - successfully completed.
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.
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.
RIDE - Triumph Factory Tour
We planned to attend the Hinckley factory tour on the 27th and bookings were in hand. However plans don't always work and this is postponed for now. TBA
July 1st Meeting
This meeting will be held at The White Swan, 1 North Quay, Gt Yarmouth, NR30 1PU at 8pm. For those coming from further west (i.e. Norwich Area) we will meet in the Tesco Car park at Hartford Bridge at 6:45pm for a 7pm departure. Let's see you folk from the East Coast at this meeting.
Border hopping from Norfolk to Suffolk. The oldies mid week ride this month intend to take in "Posh Pigs" café in Beccles for refreshment and toilet breaks.

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.
