Whisky Galore !
Eight riders turned out at Ixworth Village Hall for todays ride into Norfolk which took in some fantastic Autumn scenery, a distillery, and plenty of muddy roads.
Heading north through Bardwell there was an early pause in proceedings when our Ride Leader managed to force a flint into his tyre with predictable consequences. Once his steed was repaired, he led us north towards Norfolk and through some spectacular Autumn scenes on Knettishall Heath. The sun was shining at this point showing the scenery at its best.
Onwards then to our elevenses stop at The Kitchen at the English Whisky Company at East Harling. This was a very pleasant place to visit but sadly we didn’t have time to take in a tour or linger in the shop…
Once refuelled we continued up towards Snetterton Race Circuit for a loop north of the A11 before heading south again towards our lunch stop at The Royal George at Barningham. A very nice lunch prepared us for the last leg of the ride which would take us through a brief rain shower towards Walsham le Willows, Stowlangtoft and Pakenham before arriving back at Ixworth.
Our thanks go to Steve C for leading todays ride.
