29 Sept: Senior cyclists' ride (car assisted) to Harling Drove

Peter Rowell writes: As no one had rung to arrange transport and George will not do the rough stuff, we decided to arrange a pick-up at Gurney Way for George and Clive (Vic was meeting us at Santon Downham).

With the three bikes loaded we then set off for Santon Downham Forestry Offices. Starting from there at 10.45am we headed north for the Mundford Road, then south-east to the Wretham Road.

The coffee stop was at Croxton New Buildings. We then carried on to Wretham and Great Hockham then Larling, where we crossed under the A11 and turned left to Larlingford and The Angel.

All four partook of lunch and a pint of Adnams Bitter followed by coffee. All agreed it was an excellent meal if rather more in quantity than goes with cycling.

After lunch, we returned via Illington and Wretham to Santon Downham. Most of the ride was through narrow, almost traffic free lanes and the total distance covered was almost 28 miles. We arrived back in Cambridge around 5.00pm. Peter Rowell
