Club Run dated 16 September 2017 to Walsingham Barns

Club Run 16 September 2017 to Walsingham Barns

Waiting at Pretty Corner was a new potential club member called Geoff, who lived in Potters Bar and had ridden (like the old club members Geoff), both with Hertfordshire Wheelers and the North Road Cycling Club.

Also, waiting was our latest recruit Alban, not put off by the soaking of the previous week.

The weather forecast for the day was however heavy rain and potential thunderstorms. Neither of these predictions concerned our intrepid trio and they set off to the pick-up point at Itteringham where we met Brian who was back from his epic journey to Spain.

We rode to Mannington Hall and then back ways to the outskirts of Briston where we rode down to Hindoveston and then Kettlestone to past the “oldest church in England” and finally, to the pie café.

After excellent lunch we rode back the standard route going via Hindringham to Sharington to Hempstead and home.

Rain ? what rain ? 

A good days cycling despite the predictions made better because of the two new potential Saturday recruits

Miles 50 for most

Brian, Geoff, Alban, Geoff
