Club Run to Hoveton Hall Gardens 09/06/2022

There were four riders leaving Pretty Corner on the ride to Hoveton Hall. The ride had been postponed from Wednesday although, as it happened, the forecast rain showers were rather sparse. The route went southwards with a helpful breeze to Aldborough and Erpingham using familiar roads. The next villages were Colby, Banningham, Tuttington, and Burgh. The view crossing the Bure at Oxnead was delightful in the sunshine. Buxton and Lamas were soon reached before turning off for Little Hautbois and Coltishall. Minor roads to the north of the B1354 soon took the riders to the lunch stop cafe at Hoveton Hall, where a light lunch was enjoyed from an enticing menu. The route home was uneventful taking small roads to Ashmanhaugh, Sloley, Swanton Hill and North Walsham missing the houses via Tungate. After Bradfield, roads were familiar with riders peeling off at Hanworth and Sustead.
