Club Run to The Dun Cow at Salthouse on the 15 June 2016 – By Kevin Hornshaw

Three riders met at PC. On setting off we made brisk progress against a southerly wind through Matlaske, Itteringham, Corpusty and Guestwick. Alan asked at one point if we were in fact going to Salthouse via Yorkshire!! To put his mind at ease we eventually turned north from Hindolveston towards Melton Constable, Thornage and Letheringsett, over the hill at Bayfield Brecks, Cley,and along the coast road to the Dun Cow.
A very good 33 miles at an average of 16 miles an hour, the boys were ready for refreshment.
The pub did not disappoint with massive sandwiches and hearty sausages washed down with good ale.
After lunch Andrew said his farewells and pedaled back along the coast road home.
Not daunted Alan and I tackled Bard Hill, no mean feat after what we had eaten, then on to Holt, Baconsthorpe, Gresham and the last hill on Gibbet Lane to finish.
A total of 46 miles PC to PC with many Norfolk thigh- testing hills. A good day out with sunshine all the way and no punctures, what more could you ask for.
Roll of Honour Kevin, Alan and Andrew
