Club Run to Coltishall on 25/6/2022.

On a bright and windy day, seven riders left Pretty Corner to collect one more at Gresham. The longer morning leg went by way of Sustead, Hanworth, Thorpe Market, Bradfield, Swafield, Little London, Edingthorpe Green, Bacton Wood, Honing, Dilham, Cat’s Common, Callow Green, Neatishead, a short stop at Irstead Staithe, Bewilderwood, Hoveton Hall and Belaugh Green, to the No.77 Cafe, where Malcolm was waiting after his ride up via the Reedham Ferry. One Wheeler was out only for the morning, leaving eight sat at two outside tables for their refuelling break. On departure, Malcolm pushed straight back to Wroxham, while the main bunch headed home, assisted by a lot of stiff tailwind, via St James, Mayton Bridge, Frettenham, Stratton Strawless, Buxton, Rippon Hall, Cawston, Heydon (from where Jim headed for home), Corpusty, Plumstead and Barningham Winter to the split on Red Barn Lane.

Group: Brian; Chris S; Graham J; Harvey; Jim; Mark; Neil S + Graham A out for a morning loosener and Malcolm up from St Olave’s over the ferry. – So, rather more than the 6.25 average for 2022 to date, although that figure includes some wet and/or extremely windy winter days.

One puncture (on anti-puncture ‘winter bike’).

Distances: 67 miles to 80 miles.
