Club Run 27th of April to The Crown, Banningham – leader Trevor Neild

Seven Wheelers met at PC for Trevor’s run to Banningham.  Those cycling to the start from the east recorded “personal worsts” for the cycle to PC – the wind was quite strong.

At the top of Red Barn Lane, Malcolm joined us for the speedy “with the wind” passage towards Banningham.  We were close to Antingham in no time but Trevor was enjoying the easy cycling conditions and led us further south east.  This was good fun but the further south east we got, the longer the slog into the wind for the return to Banningham.  We were well past RAF Coltishall before we turned.  But it wasn’t that bad and we had a stonking average speed to the turn.

Geoff was at the pub to meet us.  The Crown always looks after us well and we dined in great spirits.

The run back to PC was the traditional direct route via Ingworth and Thurgarton and, as usual, riders left the group at various points, leaving four to return to PC.

Whilst the wind was pesky, the sun shone for the whole ride and the countryside looked fantastic.

A really nice ride out that saw the welcome return of Hugh.  Many thanks, Trevor.
