4 Wheelers met at PC on a gloriously sunny day for Malcolm’s ride to a venue with new owners, a new name and a new menu!
As this was quite a long run south eastwards Malcolm tried to keep both the outward and return legs as direct as possible and by and large was fairly successful!
So Bessingham, Aldborough, Erpingham, Colby, Banningham, Tuttington, Skeyton, Swanton Abbott, Scottow, Tunstead and then the long straight St Peter’s Lane and even longer Long Lane took us (almost) to our lunchtime destination (Ropes Hill and Lower Street completing the outward route).
We hadn’t reserved but space wasn’t a problem even though the tables did start to fill up after we had ordered. When asked the owner did say that the customer base was good and growing so best of luck to them for the future.
After an enjoyable lunch we returned via Neatishead, Smallburgh, Dilham, Honing, Crostwight, Edingthorpe Street, Paston Green, Knapton, Trunch, Southrepps, Northrepps and then Crossdale Street to Felbrigg. At this point we regrouped, took a deep breath and continued on through Metton to Lower Gresham where Malcolm made an about turn for Sustead, Hanworth, Suffield and home while the others completed the circuit back to PC and then home.
Good company and a good ride on a great day to be on your bike – a shame that a few more weren’t able to join us!

On his way back Malcolm caught up with CJ at Hanworth – he was also out on his bike enjoying the last of the afternoon’s sunshine!
