Club Run to Norton’s Cafe at Walsingham 16 September 2020

Words by Andrew B

This was the first ride under the new COVID-19 ‘Group of 6’ regulations. Unfortunately, Robert had to drop out at the last moment due to illness so 5 Wheelers set off from PC for today’s ride to Walsingham.

Due to the closure of the A148 following an accident, the leader (Andrew B) and Duncan only just made it to the start in time.

The 23 mile route to Walsingham went through Plumstead, Edgefield, Briston, Thorney, Binham and Wighton on mostly quiet country lanes. The weather started sunny but clouded over as forecast and most riders were wearing slightly warmer clothing than of late.

This was also the first lunchtime cafe stop since lockdown at one of the club favourites, Norton’s Cafe. There were no problems at the cafe (who were very welcoming) and lunch was a good standard as normal. Of course we all maintained social distancing and filled in a track and trace form.

The ride back, under a darkening sky, was the normal route through Binham, Wiveton and up to High Kelling, where Andrew B left the group to return to PC.

Alan, Andrew B, Duncan, Graham A and John S

Total distance PC to PC was 40 miles.

Club Run 9 September 2020

Six Wheelers set off from PC lead by Robert into a fairly brisk westerly for a slightly different Wednesday club ride.

As the lunchtime venue was in West Runton (and therefore close to PC) it was decided to have a longer than normal outward leg and then after an al fresco lunch we would each make our ways back home.

The very pleasant route, interrupted only by large agricultural machinery, a tree felling and a split sidewall puncture, took us firstly to Baconsthorpe and then Melton Constable. We turned directly south towards Hindolveston and thereafter passed through Thurning and Corpusty before taking the narrow and winding lanes to Itteringham. We followed the course of the River Bure to Ingworth and then via Scarrow Beck to Wickmere, Sustead, Aylmerton and the descent of Beacon Hill to a well earned lunch after some 35 miles!

In his garden and in the sunshine Robert treated us to his signature Nigerian kidney bean and peanut sauce stew and homemade bread – perfect!

After discussing options for keeping the Wednesday Rides going while still keeping within the current COVID-19 guidelines and soon to be introduced legal requirements we followed our own routes home.

Many thanks to Robert for working out a great route and for his hospitality.

Andrew B, Andrew C, Duncan, Graham J, Malcolm, Robert

Club Run 2 September 2020

John’s Story

10 signed-up for John’s ride to Honing.  It was nice to see interest on this scale so we had to find a way of accommodating all.  A telephone call between Malcolm and John discussed options and, since Malcolm’s place is not far from John’s, we opted to go for two groups on the road and two garden lunch stops.  GPX files were exchanged and we were good to go.

As it happened 2 pulled out so 8 it was.  But the plan was still valid so it was followed.

The route for those who went to Honing is shown below and the weather Gods were with us!  A splendid day out for all with fitness levels beginning to improve.

Malcolm’s Story

The two socially distanced groups had followed a similar path as far as Bacton Woods from where Malcolm led his group of 3 via the picturesque Ebridge Mill to North Walsham.

We had made good time on the outward leg and arrived at Malcolm’s at midday. In very pleasant warm and sunny conditions we enjoyed a great el fresco lunch prepared by Malcolm’s partner Sue.

John’s group arrived from Honing at 1pm and the two groups, still following British Cycling guidelines, set off for Felmingham. At Thurgarton Malcolm turned for home leaving the remaining members of the two groups to pedal the last few miles back to PC and beyond.

Facts and Figures

37 miles PC to PC with quite a bit more for most.

Lunches in Honing and North Walsham.

Alan, Andrew B, Andrew C, Duncan, John S, Kevin, Malcolm and Robert

No bike cleaning required!
