Club Ride to The Forget Me Not Café at Lenwade – Leader John Dimascio 20 January 2016
The weather forecast for this Wednesday’s club ride was artic cold. Notwithstanding this nine club members turned up for John’s ride to one of the best value cafes in Norfolk. Shortly after leaving Pretty Corner our leader had the misfortune to puncture. There are times when punctures are an inconvenience to say the least but this one was in the back of beyond, no wind, no rain, no traffic and a warming sun which gave us hope that spring is not too far away
Puncture fixed and tyre inflated despite a recalcitrant valve we set off going the back lanes via Briston and Reepham before arriving at café at Lenwade. Here, we met two more Wheelers makinga grand total of eleven out for the day.
After an excellent lunch it was back on our bikes and back via Cawston, Itteringham and home.
An excellent day’s ride in good weather – the only drawback was the state of the roads which remain appalling.
Many thanks John.
