The Storck looks lovely Ian as does the scenery. I wish I lived near the coast. I have to do 60 miles just to get to the coast and then it’s bloody Southport. Apologies to Southport residents but Ainsdale beach could never look as good as those pictures up there.
Steve – Good to hear from you, how are you? (mail me if you prefer) Getting out on the CX bike much? I do love my Storck, especially on days like this! You’re right Norfolk does have some great beaches, from my house heading Nth or East it’s about 20 miles to the coast and 30 if heading Sth so plenty of scope for seaside cafe stops. Unfortunately however good the beaches are, it is sadly lacking in hills!
TurnerGuy – “was the singletrack good?” ???? You’ve lost me, sorry.
Got out on the road bike for the first time since injury in December. I have used it on the turbo trainer, but since getting out in the last few weeks have opted for the low gears of the mtb as I am so unfit – however, it was a lovely day and its a good way of getting some strength up. Only did 10 miles to see how the knee get on, but for the first time in the 15 months of having my road bike I actually enjoyed it as we now live near some much quieter roads.
It sure was (once I’d (ahem) dealt with my hangover!) Had a fantastic ride up the hilly back roads from
Conwy to Betws y Coed, back down the valley and then round the cliffs and headland of the Great Orme. Coastal riding is the best 🙂
Bianchi Boy – I’m going to be over in Norfolk visiting my folks in a few weeks time – will have my road bike with me and planning on heading out for a few rides. Have you got any suggested routes? Will be based in Dereham and then Diss, but was thinking of heading from there towards the coast.
