Club Ride to the The Queens Head at Foulsham – Leader Alan Fisher 9 December 2015
Club rides in December tend to be a little on the short side bearing in mind inclement weather and the shorter daylight time. No one had told Alan this so he cooked up a cracking 50 miler for our ride to Foulsham. Six riders turned up for this Xmas feast and soon we were in a strong head wind going down to Itteringham then Reepham where we crossed the town centre road and rode on to Lyng and then Elsing to Swanton Morley. Just when we thought there was no more hills up came another one and a hard push to Billingsford to Bintree and finally the pub. Just on 30 miles at the stop.
Food at the pub was excellent with the service second to none. TN had ridden out to meet us and had wondered if we had been attacked by a string of punctures – no – just hills and high winds.
After lunch the group split into smaller rides with the main riding to Guestwick, Wood Dalling tp Heydon, Little Barningham and finally Sheringham and home.
An excellent ride with 50 miles in the bag – thank you Alan
