After a short delay due to a puncture, courtesy of a fine example of a Norfolk flint, 11 Wheelers set off from PC for Alan’s ride to Cawston. Due to some cloud the morning temperatures were set to be pleasant – a different story in the afternoon.
The route out was Lower Gresham, Sustead, Hanworth, Thorpe Market, Lower Street, Antingham Ponds, Felmingham, Skeyton Corner, Skeyton, Badersfield, Little Hautbois, Waterloo, Stratton Strawless, Felthorpe, Haveringland and Eastgate.
One or two in the bunch were running on empty as we arrived at the Café having pedalled a distance from their homes to PC and then a tad over 30 miles on the outward leg. The Café was its usual excellent self and we were all soon rehydrated and refuelled ready for the return.
Peter left us at this point and the remaining 10 followed a familiar path to Itteringham where Malcolm peeled off for Erpingham and home leaving the others to complete the circuit back to PC via Little Barningham.
Many thanks to Alan for leading today’s run.
44 miles PC to PC (60 miles max)
On returning to his car at PC Alan reported his temp gauge showing 41c so yes it was a very hot afternoon!
