Bruce McEwan Memorial Ride – (Tour of the Greens) 4 June 2016
Two club members met at Pretty Corner for Bruce’s memorial ride to Yaxham. A further six were waiting at for us at Itteringham making a grand total of eight. It should be noted that other members rode the previous week because they were unable to come today.
The weather, which must be noted, was cold and misty going out but there was the promise of better things once we left the “arctic circle” of Sheringham and headed towards Yaxham.
Our ride out went via Itteringham, Cawston, Great Witchingham, Lenwade, Collin Green, Primrose Green, Green Farm, Peaseland Green, Etling Green, Clint Green, Yaxham.
Waters of Yaxham is always busy which denotes a good café which it is.
A minute’s quiet contemplation was given in memory of Bruce.
After lunch the sun broke through and the temperature moved into promised 20%.
Home was via Brakefield Green, Clippings Green, North Tuddenham, Elsing, Lyng, Reepham, Ollands, Oulton Street.
This ride, with its poignant memorise, was really top draw. Our thanks to all those who came this week and last week to pay their respects.
Alan, Chris, Geoff, Harvey, Malcolm, Robin, Scott, Trevor.
