The Suffolk branch of the TOMCC has been established for many years now and has grown to 150 members! It’s run by a small enthusiastic committee and member participation is both encouraged and welcomed.

We offer friendship, ride-outs, social events, help and advice on owning and riding Triumphs and opportunities to get involved if you want to. Regular activities include breakfast runs, shows and rallies etc. Extra social events like quiz nights and 10 pin bowling competitions are also organised regularly. Many of our members regularly take trips abroad.

We invite all TOMCC members to come and join us at our headquarters

The Pickerel Inn, 65 Stowupland St, Stowmarket IP14 1EQ

On the 2nd Tuesday of the month. Whether you’re young or old, ride a new or old bike (or in the car).

Calendar and organising an event
The events listed in the calendar shows different two types of events and labelled as such:
FYI Events:
It's the things that happen and where you go in your own responsibility and and not as representatives of the club or the branch.
STOMCC Events:
Those are our club meetings and activities where we represent the club and our branch. These are either
  1. Show type events where we come together with stall and banner, or 
  2. Rides which start at a dedicated location and we ride together as a group from there.
The first need a  Liability insurance (please see notes) and a Risk assesment
The second needs a Risk Assesment
.
If you wish to plan an event please get in touch with the Social Secretary who will be happy to assist with the planning, and will liaise with the treasurer, if needed, and the webmaster on your behalf to make your event a success.

Ad hoc rides won't make it into the calendar. Those are rides where we use our bikes to meet at a fish and chip shop, or for an ice cream or an (alcohol free) beer, when the sun is out. Please pop those on the FB page to drum up some attendance.

STOMCC Calendar​​​



Below is our list of the regular events, but please look up details directly at the events calendar.
Regular events
  • Every 2nd Tuesday of the month is Club night at our HQ the Pickerel Inn
  • Every 4th Tuesday of the month we see to arrange a ride to a different pub in the county to accommodate people who live in different areas of the county.
  • Annual General Meeting: we are hoping to hold our 2023 AGM at the branch HQ
  • Every year we attend the Copdock Show. In 2019 we won best club stand. Next upcoming date is September 2022. Please check the calendar for date once it is announced. We usually arange for a team to camp over the night before, which makes it a bit of a mini-rally, a great branch weekend out.
The social secretary will explore the event scene at the beginning of the season and we discuss attendance during our meets. For a lively club life it's quite essential that the membership comes forward with ideas as well as hands on event organisation, and please keep in mind not everything has to do with riding, e.g. we did a bus trip to the Hinkley factory. As mentioned above, please do get in touch with the social secretary for the admin part of things.

The theme will be based around '120 years of the Triumph motorcycle' We'd love a broad cross section of bikes from oldest to the latest split evenly between the two factories, Meridian and Hinckley. With one bike being 30 years old to coincide with the 30 years of the Copdock show. Would you like to show off your pride and joy? Anything in road Worthy condition considered! Please contact one of the show committee (Stephen Limmer, Sue Barrett or myself) with what you have. A cross section of the different engine sizes would be good too.
