Club Run to The Kings Head at Blakeney – 30 March 2016 Leader Kevin Hornshaw
A good turnout of nine riders met with Kevin at Pretty Corner for his annual “over the hills and far away” run to The Kings Head at Blakeney. The nine included new potential member Paul who we welcomed to the pack.
Leaving Pretty Corner we rode down towards Itteringham turning left at the bottom of the hill to ride to Gresham. Here, unfortunately, one rider punctured. No problem with that, a nice quite lane to mend the offending tyre. However, no sooner had we started than cars and farm equipment of all sorts and sizes came trundling along the lane sending club members into the hedges for safety. This even included a lady enquiring about joining the club and riding tandem…..
Once the puncture had been fixed we were on our way going via Gresham-Hanworth-Lt Barningham-Edgefield-Hunworth-Thornage-Letheringsett- which included some fords and a collection of hills which were not for the faint hearted.
We finally arrived at the The Kings Head in Blakeney where we met Malcolm sitting outside enjoying the warm spring day.
Excellent food and good service are the pubs hall mark. Soon however we were back on our bikes riding home via Glandford-Letheringsett-Hunworth-Stody-Edgefield-Baconsthorpe and then home.
1 1/2 punctures, many fords and some of the best hills in Norfolk.
Interesting to note that this was the second “Kings” pub we had visited in the course of the week.
PC to PC 43 miles.
Weather: Glorious Spring
Many thanks Kevin
