    Just for your info on your proposed route as you leave Winterton towards Somerton there is a sharp right then left which is tree covered and called Dark Lane.......... due to the lotsa rain there has been loads of sediment washed down from the bankings that has settled in the road and may catch out the unwary if you turn into the dark area from sunlight ............. its dead centre of the lane and right after the apex of the corner

    It tends to get left for quite a while after each rainpour and was fairly thick last 2-3 times i have been along in the last 3 weeks

    Following the same theme just been out for a ride this evening along the north Norfolk coast making the most of a break in the rain! The road between Well-next-the-Sea and Sheringham has several bends that have also been covered in gravel wash since the heavy rain over the last few days. It is mainly on the blind ones so can catch you out!!

    Hi diddyman!

    Fun isn't it? I'll be keeping the squad fairly slow along there. Tis often a bastard along there.

    Why not pop in on Friday night and say hi? Or there's plenty more space on the campsite

    I couldn't possibly comment other than the fact that 70 and a bit of throttle management will do it too. Apparently.

    Might manage a couple more but I want to keep the squad quite small if possible. Very easy to get broken up round here.
