Leaving Tesco Milton promptly at 3:30pm, we pass through Fordham, Prickwillow & Littleport and take the A10 to Downham Market. After an hour on the road we’ll make a short stop at Downmarket Costa for those wishing to stretch their legs, then head north towards Narborough, Hillington & Dersingham along scenic country roads, picking up the A149 a few miles from Hunstanton. The outward journey is 73 miles, and we’ll arrive at ~6pm.
There are several takeaway options within a 5-minute walk, and discerning diners will research Henry’s & Fishers (both offering eat-in options) & their competitors. But whatever they opt for, those in the know will head to the large grass area by the bandstand for some social, outdoor dining.
Leaving Hunstanton no later than 19:30, our 63-mile route back takes us north around King’s Lynn, then follows the A47 to Wisbech, where we’ll once again take to the country roads, passing through Elm, Friday Bridge & Coldham, before joining the A141 near March. We’ll then follow the A141 all the way to Huntingdon and the ride’s end at the Riverside Carpark. With the return journey estimated to take ~ 1½ hours, riders can expect to arrive in Huntingdon before sunset (which takes place at 9:26pm).

Members evening, with a presentation by Keith Tremeer

Over Community Centre  |  Tuesday 18th June  |  7:30-9:30pm
Please use this link if you plan to attend

All are welcome at Over Community Centre on June 18th from 7:30pm for our next Member’s Evening. Following a trusted formula, we’ll celebrate recent successes with Observers presenting a CAM wuffler to each new Member, and then the main event: Working & Living in Brazil, presented by Keith Tremeer. Keith offers the following teasing description of his talk –

When Brazil is mentioned talk of football, Carnival, beautiful beaches & the Amazon rainforest often follows. As some of you know, I lived and worked for a substantial period of time in the country, working in the international banking sector. Arriving in 1980 fresh from university, my first 12 months were spent in the heat and humidity of the Amazon jungle, and in subsequent years I worked in a number of places around the country. During that time I got married, became fluent in Portuguese, survived Brazil’s extreme bureaucracy, monthly inflation reaching 60%, monetary confiscation, and no fewer than 7 “economic reforms” and 6 different currencies. I also witnessed the country’s progression from a military dictatorship to a fully-fledged democracy, with the economy opening up to the outside world, and foreign investment eager to participate in the new-found growth opportunities.

During my presentation, I’ll take you through some of the more interesting (and unusual) experiences, both positive and negative, that I had during my 36 years. I’m also trying to see if I can arrange a culinary surprise for participants to indulge in during the coffee break!! I look forward to seeing you there.
