Five Wheelers met at PC for Robert’s ride on a bright and not too breezy Wednesday morning!
We set off for Metton and after a longish drag with a head/cross wind up to Felbrigg eventually reached Southrepps via Crossdale Street and Northrepps. At Trunch we crossed to Knapton followed by Old Hall Street and Edingthorpe Green. Heading towards North Walsham on the North Walsham Road we took a left into Mill Road to follow the narrow lanes to Spa Common, White Horse Common, Meeting House Hill and (crossing the A149) Bengate.
After Worstead we wound our way along more lanes to Market Street at Tunstead. Now there is more than one Tunstead Road in Tunstead but we chose the one that crosses the railway line and then descends to The White Lion Road at St James. There had clearly been a recent heavy shower at Coltishall and we were lucky to miss it!
The sun came out as we arrived at Dollies and we enjoyed some real late spring warmth as we sat outside refuelling with coffee and baps.
On the return leg it was a straight run to Badersfield and then Skeyton, Tuttington and Banningham. At the B1145 there was the first split as Malcolm turned for North Walsham and home. The remainder of the group continued on to The Crown where Graham peeled off to head due north towards Cromer. The trio pedalled on to Ingworth and Wickmere but as they approached Sustead decided to split 3 ways and follow their particular routes home.
Many thanks to Robert for leading the ride and best wishes to those who were unable to join us today but I know would like to have done.
