Words by Andrew.
5 met at pretty corner for the ride to Horning. Blue skies, a balmy 11deg C and lightish SE winds were the conditions. Amongst the starters was our old friend Graham from Nottingham. 4 of us were in bib shorts, so, summer is officially here.
Off we set collecting Malcolm at the top of Gibbet Lane, then out to Matlask and over to Itteringham. It was left at the Walpole Arms and north of Blickling to Ingworth and then on to Banningham, Tuttington, and Buxton Lammas. Thence on to Coltishall via St. James where we lost Robin and Malcolm, only to catch them up on the roads north of Wroxham. They obviously knew a short cut! Finally, down to sunny Horning after 29 miles at 14.5 mph.
4 went for the steak and kidney pie with mash, all eaten outside in glorious sunshine.
The return was towards Tunstead, Worstead and on to Skeyton, Banningham and home – clocking up 54 miles on dry quiet lanes at 15.3 mph.
Great route, thanks to Trevor.
