Club Run to The Conservatory at Aylsham 26 July 2017

Alan’s reflections

Seven trusty stalwarts met at Pretty Corner for the ride to The Conservatory at Aylsham.

We set out into a healthy head wind via Gresham, Felbrigg Park, South Cromer, Northrepps, Southrepps and Lower Street. Here we picked up a stray (David C) sitting at X roads having a drink. Heading south to Bradfield, North Walsham, Skeyton, Coltishall and Little Hautbois, then looping round to Hainford, Stratton Strawless and Buxton to a well earned lunch at Aylsham.

Here we were treated to a nice jug of water to quench our thirst while waiting for our orders. Unfortunately the initial jug was warm not cold as intended but was soon rectified with many apologies.

Having been fully fed we proceeded to head back to Pretty Corner via Able Heath, Blickling, then the usual return leg through Itteringham, having said goodbye to Trevor and John who headed home in a westerly direction.

Luckily the promised rain held off until ride completed.

Many thanks to Alan for being leader and navigator for the day. Sorry I couldn’t join you – had to see a man about a dog!
