Words by Alan, our leader for the day
On a pleasant dry day after a very wet Tuesday 5 riders met at PC for a leisurely ride to Reepham.
Heading downhill then left (ignoring Malcolm’s “You’ll be sorry!”) along a mucky lane to Gresham, then on to Bessingham, Aldborough and up to the A140. Then to Suffield, Colby, Banningham, Tuttington, Oxnead and Brampton. Where did that headwind come from?
Zigzagging across to the A140 then bypassing Hevingham to the Holt Rd crossing towards Swannington then on to Reepham for a well earned lunch.
Having put the world to right over tasty snacks we headed north to Heydon (Malcolm heading east here), Saxthorpe, Little Barningham, round Barningham Park (Duncan heading west here), up towards Gresham (Robert leaving here) then left towards West Beckham (Andrew heading to Geoff’s Corner) leaving Alan to head to PC via A148.
Great to have a tailwind on the way back.
Great day shame about the wind!
Alan, Andrew B, Duncan, Malcolm, Robert
42 miles PC to PC.
Note from Editor
The Station Cafe Reepham seems to be doing well after reopening under a new name and new management. With all COVID-19 measures in place the staff are friendly and efficient and the food as tasty as ever – even though on this occasion the Rocket in the salad was not quite up to one Wheeler’s expectations – can’t please everyone!
