Five rode down to the pickup point, but there were no more takers on this mild December day with a fresh south westerly. The ride out to Pensthorpe was through Plumstead, Saxthorpe, Wood Dalling, Guestwick, Foulsham, Bintree watermill, Broom Green, Great Heath, the Ryburghs, Clay Hill and Burrow Hill. An easy tailwind ride back in balmy conditions went by way of Kettlestone, Croxton, Fulmodeston, Hindolveston, Burnthouse, Thurning, Crabgate, the Heydon estate and a 3:2 split at Itteringham.
Group: Malcolm; Harvey; Graham A; Geoff; Brian.
PC to PC was 52 miles, but distances ranged from 57 miles to a mileage in the high 60s recorded by Malcolm.
Two punctures (Pensthorpe and Itteringham).
