Despite the threat of gusting winds and heavy rain a foolhardy five meet at PC for the ride to Langham.
Proceeding to West Beckham it was strenuous riding into the southerly wind and on reaching Geoff’s Corner unfortunately Malcolm decided to abandon and head for home due to not feeling well but undaunted the now fearless foursome headed on to Baconsthorpe, Edgefield, Briston, Briston Common and Hindolveston struggling against strong, gusting wind and rain. Luckily here we turned towards Fulmodeston now cycling with the wind to the side but still tricky as it was gusting through gaps in the hedges.
Onwards to Little Snoring (passing the scene of Malcolm’s previous mishap with the dog… no dog!!!!!). Here we followed the edge of the airfield and headed to Thursford, Hindringham and northwards to Briston thankful for the wind on our backs for the final push to Langham and a welcome respite from the wet weather.
Following a nice lunch, we headed back to PC via Wiveton where Jane and Stephen turned off to Blakeney and home, leaving Alan and Kevin to finish the final leg over Kelling Heath, Lower Bodham, West Beckham and Sheringham Park where Kevin turned home and Alan took the main road back to PC.
5 out 4 back Alan, Jane, Kevin, Stephen and Malcolm.
39.5 miles wet, windy and cold
Thanks for the company!
