Not raining yet!
And surprisingly it didn’t until about 400 yards from Pretty Corner on the return leg – and had our leader had some more in the tank we would have been home five minutes earlier and in the dry.
Four hours before, a trio of riders met at the usual place – viewed the threatening weather and wondered where they’d rather be. Undaunted however, they set off down Gibbet Lane to start a loop of the coastal fringe that took in Gresham, Baconsthorpe, Edgefield, Hunworth and Stody before turning into a biting breeze. Our leader cunningly kept heading for the blue bits of sky – there was plenty of black about and Kevin remarked at one point that it looked like Sheringham was getting it today.
Crossing the A148 at Sharrngton we kept on northward until turning down to ford the mighty Glaven at Glandford and continue into Cley. It was then a breeze (ha ha) along the coastal road to our lunch at the Dun Cow. And in my view one of the places where the food, although expensive, is definitely worth it.
Barred (or it would be if I had my way) Hill was next, followed by the long haul up through Kelling and the usual way home.
So, 3 out – Alan, JohnD and Kevin, no incidents and 34 hard miles.
