Club Ride to The Olive Branch at Tunstead

Club Ride to The Olive Branch at Tunstead  – Leader on the Way Out Trevor Neild and on the Way Back Geoff Poulter – 5 August  2015

With summer at last officially here 10 club member’s plus one guest and one potentially new member joined TN for his Tour of the Lanes to Tunstead.

There are many routes to Tunstead and Trevor seems to know them all. Setting off at a cracking rate we hammered through a dozen different lanes to Hanworth before crossing A140 and then reaching our destination – the cyclist café at Tunstead.

This leg of the club run was excellent as we saw North Norfolk in its very best.

At the café stop we welcomed Peter Laws on his bike after his operation. David Carrier also joined us on his virtually new bike. A cheer went up when Malcolm Stanley ( driven by his lovely lady) turned up on his titanium crutches .

Surely this is what cycling clubs are about – friends meeting and spending time together and coming out after serious operations.

We thank you for making the effort to come and meet us.

After lunch TN took us to Worstead and then to skeytom where he passed over the baton to GP to take the club riders back via Tuttington, Banningham, and finally Sheringham.

Many thanks Trevor – Appreciate your hard work in planning the route.

1 puncture, 50 miles, Weather: warm sunny.

Foot note: Riding back through Upper Sheringham GP warned a car driver behind him that there was a car coming down and he should not attempt to overtake.  His reward was a load of abuse.
