Club Run to The Red Lion at Coltishall 9 January 2019

Six Wheelers met at PC for Alan’s ride to Coltishall.

A helpful tailwind took us swiftly to Itteringham and carried us up the hill to The Blickling Road where we bade farewell to Robin.

Although dampness was in the air we were optimistic that conditions would remain favourable as we passed through Oulton Street, Southgate and on to Cawston. Our route continued through Brandiston, Haveringland, over the busy B1149 and on via Shorthorn Road and over the A140 Cromer Road to Stratton Strawless. Just before Buxton a not so Sandy Lane, in fact more like Straw Lane, led us to the Coltishall Road and Horstead before arriving at our destination after some 27 miles.

Just after settling down at our table the threatened rain shower arrived which made our excellent lunch at this great venue even more pleasurable. Particularly so as the rain had cleared away by the time we were ready to leave!

John S left us to head eastwards while the remaining 4 went back through Coltishall up to Great and Little Haubois and on to Badersfield and Skeyton. After negotiating a tractor and a section of muddy road the group split again with one heading off towards North Walsham and just 3 taking the following route; Tuttington, Dunkirk, Erpingham , Calthorpe, Aldborough and Gresham where Andrew and Kevin headed west and Alan back to PC.

Many thanks to Alan for leading today’s ride.
