Club Ride to The Butchers Arms -24 February Leader: Geoff Poulter
The weather forecast for Wednesday morning was for an artic frost which could potentially lead to the club run being cancelled on safety grounds. As it transpired however, the frost was nowhere as severe as expected and a quick discussion between John S and Geoff P confirmed that the run would go ahead.
The route out from Pretty Corner was a “North Norfolk” classic going past Gresham across to Banningham, Tuttington, Swanton Abbott then onto Worstead and finally the Butchers at East Rushton.
The pub continues to welcome us in the same friendly manner as it has done for many years. Food is good value and timely served. Meeting us at the pub was Ian, Malcolm and Trevor.
Food consumed, it was back on our bikes for the winding way home and making the best of the now excellent weather.
On route, unfortunately one members punctured on tyres which seemed they would stop a Zulu spear from deflating them.
Tyre fixed in record time it was back on the road again.
A little further on another club member suffered the second puncture of the day in the “not so new” tyre on his bike which could mean further outlay on another one making a matching set……
Riding back via Trunch to Thorpe Market then to Hanworth and finally Sheringham.
An excellent days riding – dry roads – sunshine – little wind and a good pub – HEAVEN
Thanks to all that came out.
Robert, Trevor, Kevin, Malcolm, Ian, John S, John D, Phil, Geoff
