Club Run to Little Walsingham on 22/1/2022.

Only four Wheelers set out from Pretty Corner on this persistently icy morning as a cold north westerly wind kept the glaze on the shady lanes. Brian suffered the misfortune of stripping his freewheel very early in the day, being forced to abandon. He hasn’t enjoyed much luck with components this winter. The victim substituted with three hours on fixed wheel in the early afternoon. Jim headed home early, leaving only the seaside pair of Mark and Neil S to refuel at a quiet Norton Cafe. South of Great Snoring, this fast-moving duo were met by the late-starting veteran, Harvey, who was approaching up the scheduled route in the wrong direction! These three riders enjoyed a lot of tailwind assistance until swinging north after Oulton.

The route for the day was Salthouse Heath, Glandford, Letheringsett, Thornage, Saxlingham, Field Dalling, Binham, the Walsinghams, the Snorings, Thursford, Gunthorpe, Swanton Novers, Hindolveston, Thurning, Heydon Park, Itteringham and the Barninghams (red kite).

One stripped freewheel.

The Sheringham contingent covered the greatest distance today:- 61 miles.
