Rain, sunshine, showers, cloud – but through it all reasonably warm temperatures for the 9 Wheelers who enjoyed Kevin’s ride to the “pie pub” at Warham.
The outward leg took us through Saxthorpe, Thurning, Fulmodeston, Kettlestone, Little Snoring, Great Snoring, East and West Barsham, along a fairly busy B1105 (but fast paced with a following SSW) to Egmere, then turning right towards Wighton. Here we experienced the second deflation of the day but this was realised only after most of the group had reached Wighton. Having regrouped we passed the Iron Age Fort and arrived at our lunchtime destination definitely in need of sustenance with one or two of the group having covered 40+ miles since their bowl of porridge!
We chose to sit outside even though the skies were threatening rain. In the event we were lucky and enjoyed a great lunch before setting off towards Westgate and Binham, the group reduced to 7, Stephen and Trevor having left us. As we approached Field Dalling and Bale the group had become just 5 and then 4 as Peter peeled off towards home.
The gang of four (no political reference intended) rode through Sharrington, Brinton and Stody before reaching Edgefield where there was a two way split with one pair returning to PC via Baconsthorpe and West Beckham while the other continued on to Little Barningham, Erpingham, Colby, Suffield and home.
Many thanks to Kevin for leading today’s run and to the weather gods for sparing us a soaking or something very very frightening!

Some felt it was warm enough for short sleeves while others were taking no chances with the unpredictable UK weather. In the event it was a perfect cycling day for the 13 Wheelers who left PC for Peter’s ride to Reepham.
After following a familiar path to High Kelling a broken spoke in Andrew C’s rear wheel necessitated a change of bike and a slight change of route (for the swap) but no one minded and we picked up Andrew again at Wiveton and pedalled on to Saxlingham and Field Dalling. Across the A148 and on to Sharrington, Briningham, Melton Constable and Hindolveston. 22 miles and about another 7 before lunch but the run through Thurning and Wood Dalling was fairly swift until a puncture held up Andrew B briefly, while the remainder of the bunch (except for Malcolm who kept Andrew company) carried on to the Café.
There to meet us were CJ, Geoff and Trevor N so the biggest lunchtime gathering for some time! The staff at Kerri’s were super efficient and after a welcome refuel the original 13 set off for Salle. There was a split in the group just before Salle which meant that Robin and Gilly headed off towards Aylsham while Malcolm went in pursuit of the group unsure about the route they were taking. A post-run quote from the run leader “Took a little dog leg around Salle Common to avoid any cycling on the main Holt/Norwich road then left the group at Little Barningham.”
Malcolm took a slightly different route initially but couldn’t have been far behind the main group through Oulton, Itteringham, and Little Barningham before finally catching them just before PC.
Many thanks to Peter for leading today’s run.
Alan, Andrew B, Andrew C, Gill, Graham, Jane, John S, Kevin, Malcolm, Peter, Robin, Stephen, Trevor E.

No weather problems today as 10 Wheelers met at PC for the Wednesday Bunch’s inaugural visit to The H&G lead by John S!
Although there were extensive overhead power works going on in East Beckham we were still able to get through and thereafter followed a familiar path to Gresham, Sustead, Hanworth, Thorpe Market, Gunton Station, Lower Street and Bradfield. We followed the small lanes to the A149 Cromer Road, then Greens Road, past Rossi’s and over the Weavers Way.
Just after Westwick Wood we paused for a group photo and then continued on to Swanton Abbott and then across the B1150 in the direction of Worstead. Even in drought-like conditions lanes in and around Sloley always deliver and so it was as we negotiated a muddy flood on taking a right turn to take us through Sloley and eventually to Market Street and our lunchtime destination at Tunstead.
Shortly after our arrival CJ appeared and we sat in lovely warm sunshine. While it doesn’t have the cycling specific feel of The Olive Branch, The Horse and Groom was welcoming and provided us with good quality refreshments so it will certainly be a permanent fixture on the Wheeler’s list!
CJ and Robin made their own ways back and the remainder returned via Scottow, Swanton Abbott (from where Peter headed off homewards), Skeyton, Felmingham, and Corvette Kingdom. We passed St Margaret of Antioch Church and followed a long straight stretch up to the Suffield Road where Malcolm and Graham headed off towards Antingham and home leaving just 6 to return to PC.
Many thanks to John S for leading today’s ride.
Alban (yes he’s back!), Andrew B, Andrew C, Graham A, John S, Kevin, Malcolm, Peter, Robin, Stephen. CJ for lunch.

Due to the less than ideal weather conditions yesterday it was decided to cancel the run. Whilst a ring round was made to the core group of Wednesday Wheelers, apologies to anyone who may have turned up at Pretty Corner yesterday or even have cycled to Wells to meet us. We intend to reschedule the run to The Globe in the not too distant!
