Club Run to The Crown at Banningham 19 February 2020

Five Wheelers met at PC for Kevin’s ride to Banningham.

Route out; Lower Gresham, Metton, Felbrigg, Crossdale Street, Northrepps, Southrepps, Trunch, Knapton, Paston Green, Edingthorpe Street, Bacton Woods, Briggate, Lyngate, Worstead, Swanton Abbott, Skeyton, Tuttington, Banningham. The last 10 miles was a mixed bag as we battled against a fairly strong headwind until we turned for Tuttington and then benefitted from a cross/tailwind to our lunchtime destination.

The Crown was busy but we found ourselves a table not far from the bar and we didn’t have to wait too long for our food. Conversation was mostly about the pros and cons of e-cars and the environment in general. We came to the conclusion that we (society) all had to decide what we were going to give up to try and slow down the almost inevitable destruction of the planet as we know it and on that note paid up and set off for the return leg.

There was a split at Colby and just 4 returned to PC by way of Alby Hill, Thurgarton, Bessingham and Gresham.

Many thanks to Kevin for leading today’s ride.

Roads were mainly dry; the morning sunshine gave way to a cloudy and cooler afternoon but at least we missed the showers later on.
