Club Ride to the Dun Cow, Salthouse – leader Andrew Chapman. 16 December 2016

5 plucky Wheelers met at PC to follow Andrew to Salthouse.  Wind was in the air (well, where else would it be?) but it was on the nose and peskily stronger than anticipated.  This made it hard work.  It was Baconsthorpe, Holt, Brinton and Bale before turning North East just shy of Great Walsingham.  Now, with the wind on our backs, it was much speedier with Binham, Field Dalling, Saxlingham and Wiveton flashing by like the scenes from Star Trek when they move to light speed.  We approached Salthouse on the coast road and the Dun Cow was as warm and welcoming as ever.

One of the questions asked when the Dun Cow is visited is whether the return involves Bard Hill or not.  It didn’t.  The gentler gradient up Bloomstile Lane was Andrew’s choice.  We then whipped down to Kelling before turning towards High Kelling and the traditional route back to PC.

This ride is certainly a contender for “Muddiest Ride of the Year” but Andrew knows this area well and served up some tasty lanes on a delightful, well planned route.

Many thanks for a super ride Andrew.

5 out, 38 miles. No punctures.  Might need some help to clean the bike though.
