4 Wheelers left PC to join 3 more at Erpingham for Malcolm’s ride to the ever popular Corner House Café at Mundesley on a cool, cloudy but dry day.
Having avoided the ongoing road closure in Erpingham by taking the School Road route out of the village the group made their way to Drabblegate and followed the course of The River Bure into Aylsham, busy with Market and Car Boot. After Burgh and as we approached the turn to Oxnead David punctured but was ably assisted by Brian and we were soon on our way again.
Our route thereafter was Mill Road to Allison Street to High Street to the Buxton Road. Buxton, Lamas, Badersfield, Swanton Abbott, Worstead, Lyngate, Briggate. Then, feeling the effect of the cool north-easterly breeze, up to and over the North Walsham Roads (there are at least two!?!) down Sandy Lane to Bacton Village where we were later to discover there was a two way split as half the group took an unauthorised detour and ended up at Trunch rather than Mundesley.
Both groups did manage to refuel – the Café was its usual efficient and friendly self while the Crown appears to have become “gentrified.” It should be said, by the way, that this parting of the ways was purely accidental and will have no lasting effect on the good relationships within the Wheelers!!
The CHC group followed a course home through Trunch, coincidentally, Lower Street, Thorpe Market and Hanworth where there was a two way split with one half heading off to Aldborough and back to Erpingham and homewards while the other half returned to PC.
