A cool north westerly brought dry, bright and breezy conditions for the 4 Wheelers who met at PC for Malcolm’s ride to Warham. Best wishes to Mark who couldn’t join us and lead the ride today due to a family commitment.
The route there and back allowed for few deviations or loops which meant that any extra miles would have to be tagged on to the end!
So the outward leg was Geoff’s Corner to High Kelling, Wiveton, Langham, Cockthorpe and Stiffkey (with the inevitable traffic problems to which we were slightly amused observers) followed by a brief foray on the Coast Road before taking the Stiffkey Road to our lunchtime destination.
An open fire and a friendly welcome followed by hearty food prepared us well for the return leg. Following a familiar path we passed Binham, Bale, Sharrington, All Saints Church, St Andrew’s Church, St Mary’s Church and the Stody Estate. Now feeling spiritually fit we pedalled on aided by a welcome tailwind to Edgefield and Plumstead and then to the junction of Mill Road and Red Barn Lane. Alan, nursing a chesty cough, decided on the West Beckham route back to PC. Kevin accompanied Malcolm to Bessingham, Aldborough, Erpingham, Colby and Suffield before he turned into the wind for home.
Although breezy (again) it was a good day to be out on the bikes. The roads were more about fallen debris than mud so not too much bike cleaning.
38 miles PC to PC (45 miles PC to Suffield)
