3 Wheelers met for the ride to Reepham on a good autumnal day for a bike ride. Dry roads, sunshine and a gentle breeze combined to make really nice conditions. It was a westerly route via Holt, Melton Constable and Hindolveston before lunching alfresco at The Old Station. At Hindolveston, we turned south east. Now, with a following wind and really quiet roads, things were very pleasant indeed.
The chat at lunch was pretty techy with bike computers (Mark has a new one) and electric cars taking centre stage.
The return was a straightforward run home but we went east after Itteringham to pass through Thurgarton and Sustead which offered up some nice lanes. Graham left us at Sustead leaving Mark and John to complete the run by cycling up Gibbet Lane – always a good way to finish!
The route is shown below.
Overall a great few hours on the bikes.
