Club Run on the 21 May 2016 to The Peacocks Teashop at Hoe
Two club members met at Pretty Corner for our ride to the Peacocks Tearoom which is situate just out of Hoe.
At our pick up point in Reepham another club member greeted us and so off we set at a cracking pace despite a strong headwind in our face for most of the outward ride. Our journey took us to Whitwell – going past the station – then Sparham to Bylaugh ( how do you pronounce it ?) and then Robertson Barracks. Here, there were signs warning of “marching troops” but in reality the only marching was of three bikes going flat out for a well-deserved lunch.
For those who have not been to the café it is a real gem.
After lunch we had the added incentive of a strong tailwind most of the way home. Our route now was Hoe church to Woodgate and then Peaseland Green, Collin Green to Attlebridge, Swannington Upgate, Haveringland and finally Cawston (passed the disappearing Rat Catchers) to Itteringham and home
An excellent days riding – fast on the outward bound and even faster on the return.
Conditions: Stiff headwind out, strong tailwind home.
PC to PC 61 miles.
Role of Honour: Harvey, Geoff and Malcolm (and still room for a few more riders)
