Club Run to The Kings Head at Hethersett – 26 March 2016
With the weather forecast showing high winds all day from the south it was encouraging to find that six club members were ready for the journey down to The King’s Head at Hethersett. Among the valiant six was a welcome return of Tom G from Leeds University. Our first stop was down to Corpusty where we briefly met Phil out on a training ride. No takers at Corpusty however so we snaked round to Cawston where we were joined by Trevor.
Now seven, we tackled both the head wind and a collection of hills as we rode to Swannington, Attlebridge, Ringland, Marlingford Mill, Great Melton and finally to the King’s Head at Hethersett.
It was more than two years since we had visited this establishment, that time it was in glorious summer.
After much needed refreshments it was soon time to get back on our bikes for the return ride home. This time however, spirits were high as the wind that had been our master on the outward journey now became our servant as we travelled home via High Green, Wramplingham, Barford, Colton, Slade Hills, Weston Longville, Lenwade, Little Witchingham, The Grove, Oulton Street, Itteringham. On route we stopped and briefly looked at the residency of Bill Bryson who had been the subject of lunch time discussion.
Excellent days club run – character building to say the least !
