We waited a while but with no more appearances the faithful four set off for Trevor’s ride to The Goat.
We knew that this would be a reasonably fast ride because there was a healthy tail wind; and so it proved as we sped off downhill towards Bessingham. We were all set to continue on through the wandering herd in Hanworth but were halted when one of the group punctured a short distance from the first cattle grid. The roadside repair didn’t seem to please a certain Mr Angry in his 4×4!
Maybe the stop gave the leader too much time to think and he chose to retrace our route and then on to Aldborough rather than engage in a little impromptu cattle rustling. At Erpingham we took a slightly different path to the A140 via School Road.
We reached our destination after nearly 25 miles, passing through Suffield, Felmingham, Tuttington, Westwick, Swanton Abbott, Badersfield – well Trevor needed an extra loop to make up the mileage!
We were met by David C at the pub and we all enjoyed great service and food before Trevor headed off home and left the forlorn four to battle the headwind back up through Tuttington to Banningham to Colby where Malcolm said goodbye and a trio of Wheelers pedalled in the direction of Erpingham and then back to Pretty Corner on familiar roads.
Thanks to Travor for leading the ride.
