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.
