The magnificent (artistic licence!) 7 rendezvoused at PC and first headed south and then south-east under Malcolm’s leadership before pointing west to reach our mid-ride destination.
The route took in Little Barningham (puncture stop), Itteringham, Ingworth, Aylsham, Burgh and Oxnead. We then followed the very pleasant Mill Road, crossed the A140 to Allison Street and eventually joined the Buxton Road to Eastgate and thereafter Booton and Reepham.
At the Café to meet us was Geoff P. Firstly we tried al fresco dining but a sudden downpour drove us indoors. By the time we had finished lunch the rain had stopped and Malcolm decided on a fairly conventional route back via Salle, Wood Dalling, Thurning, Briston, Edgefield and Baconsthorpe. At Geoff’s Corner (aka Kevin’s Corner) there was a split as some returned to PC and others to Sheringham and beyond.
