North London Head to Swaffham


North London Supa 7 Saunter to Swaffham.

On 25th June the day turned out rather warm, some might say hot, and seven of us met at Birchanger Services for a run to Swaffham.

A lovely route took us through Newport and Saffron Walnut before a road closure forced a slight back track. Using all my skill and experience as a trained leader I changed our route and so we still hit Dullingham before Newmarket, Brandon and Mundford took us to the square at Swaffham.

Here we were fortunate to meet Mick O’ who had ridden out from his rural community to meet us.

Our planned café had problems in the kitchen and so we had nice food in the Pub on the other side of the square. 

We then rode through Downham Market and then south on the lovely 1101 from Outwell to Mildenhall.

Due to some slowness and a loss this took us a while and we took a needed break at Walkers cafe at Barton Mills.

Mick had just left us to go Norf into the wilds and as it was getting late we did an early split as some needed a quick route home.

This left Chris, Richard and myself to have a lovely flowing ride through Barrow, Clare, Finchingfield and Dunmow before a wave goodbye at Ongar.

Another road closure required my skills..   🤣.

A lovely and tiring day..
