With the weather continuing to be pretty much ideal for cycling and the sugar beet harvest not yet upon us 8 Wheelers met for Malcolm’s ride to Reepham.
The route was Aldborough, Erpingham, over the (old) Cromer Road, along a floodless (but for how long) stretch to Drabblegate and into Aylsham. Then Burgh next Aylsham and Oxnead before leaving The River Bure behind and joining the Cawston Road. The long straight road to Cawston is a bit exposed but the crosswinds were not too much of a problem as we continued on to Booton and finally our lunch stop at Reepham where we found CJ relaxing in the sunshine.
Refreshments were served with (more than) the usual efficiency and after discussing our exact route back to PC we all left together to follow the B1145 a short distance and then Salle where Robin left us. We then passed through Oulton and Itteringham before the steady climb up to Little Barningham. Trevor E had peeled off en route to head towards the Walsinghams, Robert and Malcolm turned towards Gresham and home leaving the remainder of the bunch to make their way back to PC.
Alan, Geoff, John S, Kevin, Malcolm, Robert, Robin, Trevor E and CJ at the café.
