Five riders left Pretty Corner for a fast tailwind-assisted ride to pick up two more at Aylsham, where we had a chat with Chris on his morning break from the cycle shop and fought off a women who insisted that we should all eat her ice lollies.
Route: Abel Heath, Oulton Street, Cawston, Booton, Reepham, Pettywell, Themelthorpe, Foulsham, Stibbard, Little Ryburgh, Pensthorpe, Kettlestone, Fulmodeston, Hindolveston, Guestwick, ‘Siggate’, Ingworth, Calthorpe, Wickmere, Barningham Winter.
Seven out, but one turned off at Foulsham:
Scott, Robin, Phil, Malcolm, John H., Harvey, Barry.
Some of whom can’t make it for next week’s memorial ride, so we took a minute before lunch to reflect on memories of riding with Bruce McEwan, who died on the equivalent weekend last year.
Conditions: Stiff cold northerly, but sun warm enough to sit outside the cafe.
