Three Wheelers left Pretty Corner to pick up two more at Itteringham. The bunch of five headed down through Cawston* before turning off into the minor lanes by way of Brandiston church, Swannington, Hengrave, the Witchinghams, Sparham, Fustyweed and Easthaugh to the break at the Queen of Hearts, Lenwade (formerly Maxims), where they enjoyed friendly service and some good craic with a big bunch of hairy bikers.
*Crossing first Guy and then Malcolm, who were out on their morning training rides.
The way back was through Alderford, Swannington, Eastgate and Oulton Street to the split at Abel Heath, where two continued to Aylsham and three skirted Blickling to head back north via Aldborough.
