Four fine folk met at PC for the ride to Lenwade. We are still missing some regulars but four is fine for an autumnal ride to probably the best value cafe in the world – and we might lose it as a venue if a buyer is not found soon.
The south-westerly wind meant in would be on our noses for the 22miles to the cafe but, no matter, conditions were fine for cycling. It was Baconsthorpe, Edgefield, Wood Dalling and then Lenwade. The farmers were out, with many large tractors and trailers being encountered – they were the reason for the muddy conditions that we came across from time to time.
Four other cyclists from the East Anglian Cycle Club were at the cafe – two groups of four for food.
Having dined, the route home was straightforward – Cawston (where Trevor left us) and Itteringham, before the usual approach to PC and the last gasp “sprint” up the hill on Red Barn Lane.
A nice day for a bike ride on nice lanes, with nice company and nice food – nice.
4 out. 40 miles PC to PC. 0 punctures.
