Club Ride to Erpingham Arms – 23 March 2016 Leader: Geoff Poulter
Eight club members came out for the club’s ride to the new venue of The Erpingham Arms. The club run was to be long going out and short coming back.We rode down to Itteringham and then up the hill to the cross roads where we turned right and then soon again, left, to follow some very back lane roads which eventually came out at the back entrance to Heydon park. Here, we had a quick tour of the magnificent grounds of the park before we came out in Heydon Village.
From here we rode over to Cawston and then round the back to Marsham and then onto Tuttington,Banningham and finally, Erpingham and the pub having ridden just under 30 miles.
At the pub we were greeted by Chairman Chris.
The food here was excellent with the exception of a new item on the menu – breadless soup. The general consensus was however that this venue was very worthy of being added to our list of establishments.Leaving the pub, the westerly wind had increased in strength and it was now heads down for the final ten miles of the ride.
A good days riding – dry roads – little traffic and light winds for most of the day.
Thank you to all who came out.
Conditions: Dry roads. Cool – no punctures.Distance: 40 miles
