Club Run, 31/12 (+data +survey)

Trevor, Nick, Malcolm, Harvey, Guy and Geoff turned out for the final club run of 2016 to the popular refuelling stop at Pensthorpe. In damp and misty, but fairly mild, conditions a good brisk pace was set through Cawston, Booton, Jordan Green, Foulsham, Wood Norton, Stibbard and the hilly lane through Little Ryburgh. The more familiar route home via Hindolveston and Briston was followed as far as Edgefield five-lane ends, where the bunch split three different ways, with the longer leg continuing eastwards over Barningham Green to Erpingham, Ingworth and the final split at 15.08.

Itteringham to Itteringham: 50 miles/ PC to PC: 64 miles/ Max: 72 miles.
