Due to some televised event in Russia the scheduled event was replaced by a somewhat shorter club run with a slightly earlier start. Peculiarly, on Day 1 of the TdF, cycle racing didn’t get a mention in conversations at the cafe. Even more peculiarly, the Leicester Ring Road did get a mention.
The clockwise circuit took in Moorgate, Ingworth, Banningham, Burgh Hall, Brampton, Allison Street, Brandiston, Booton, Reepham Station Cafe, Whitwell, Jordan Green, Themelthorpe, Guestwick, Tyby, Corpusty and Barningham Winter, where the bunch split.
Bunch: Brian; David; Geoff; Harvey; Malcolm; Robin.
PC to PC: 48 miles/ Itteringham to Itteringham: 37 miles/ Max: 78 miles.
