Barmy Binham Club Ride – By Alan Fisher 27 January 2016

Meeting at Pretty Corner in spite of dodgy weather the dynamic duo (Alan & Kevin) took the decision we’re here we will go.
Heading off to Baconsthorpe, into a strong blustery sw wind , up to Holt, down to Thornage , Gunthorpe , Thursford , Gt Snoring and then to Lt. Walsingham. Having achieved a reasonable distance it was suggested to throw in a scenic loop prior to lunch. Heading west undaunted the duo across B1105 and then north up through the south gate and down through Holkham Park greatly assisted by then strong wind. Then along coast road to Wells , then Warham and eventually Binham. ( A wise decision?)

After a good lunch the duo took the most direct route home via Field Dalling, Letheringsett, Holt, Baconthorpe and West Beckham. A very wet return run.
Apologies to the club member we missed.

2 riders , 50 miles , no punctures , very windy & wet later.

Foot Note

GP, late on getting to the start, decided to be the Lone Ranger and ride directly to the pub. Going via High Kelling to Cley and up to Langham and finally the pub. No trace of any Wheelers so a quick cup of coffee and off went The Lone Ranger without Tonto.

Back via Hindringham to Stody and Edgefield the Lone Rider rode but now with a heaven sent wind on his back.

Home before the rains came so for once no need to clean his trusty steed.

40 miles, no rain, no punctures, VERY windy
