8 Wheelers met at PC for Malcolm’s ride to the coast on a day that promised (and gave us) a mix of cloud and sun!
Matlaske, Erpingham, Drabblegate to Aylsham, Burgh and up to the Tuttington/Oxnead crossroads where a slow rear deflation meant a stop for a change of tube for Alan. Phil (Greg’s Dad to his friends!) had tips and tricks to help things along and we were soon back on the road to Swanton Abbott.
We completed the outward leg by way of Worstead, Lyngate, Briggate. Corner Common Road to Old Hall Road, along and across the two North Walsham Roads to reach Sandy Lane, then Bacton Village, around the back of The Gas Terminal and finally on to The Coast Road through Paston Street and into Mundesley. Just over 28 miles.
There to meet us at the Café were CJ and David C. We arrived slightly later than planned but the Café staff did not mind and served up great value lunches in their normal friendly and efficient way.
Robin and CJ decided to make their own ways back but David C joined us for the return leg via Trunch (where we said goodbye to Gill and Phil). We caught up again with CJ who cycled with us as far as Lower Street while the remainder of the group were lead by Malcolm to Antingham, Suffield, Alby with Thwaite, Alby, Aldborough and Thurgarton. At this point Malcolm retraced his steps to Aldborough, Erpingham and home while 5 returned to PC via Bessingham and Gresham.
Thanks to all for the company.
Alan, Andrew B, Gill, Kevin, Malcolm, Phil, Robin, Stephen. CJ and David C at the Café.
