Ashwell - Wells-next-the-Sea Classic 2021, Fri 10 Sept 2021

Hi all

Just an early note for the diaries... the annual CCA Classic to the sea will be setting off from Rhubarb & Mustard, Ashwell 8.30am on Friday 10 Sept 2021. 123 miles of fun for fish and chips, and then a train ride back from King's Lynn with a few refreshments.

Note it's the Club's September grass track event the next day. Always a great cure for a hangover.

  • Hi all
    Just bringing this ride back to the top. Friday 10 Sept 8.30am... See your summer season off in style with a big ride to the seaside and some drinks and singing on the train home from King's Lynn. Maybe without masks on...
  • I vaguely remember a sign for a brewery in West Acre. Well this is the brewery https://durationbeer.com maybe an alternative to the pub? Looks like they do food and have a tap room.
  • Have booked the day off.
  • I’ll get that day booked tomorrow!

    Graham, I spoke with the brewery last year. It was a bit tricky as they weren't going to be open at the time we were passing and didn't really offer any food.

    I think the pub has done us a great turn the past few years and should keep the business with them... Assuming they have survived!!... Martin, I will get in touch with them.
  • No worries Matt, Pub will suit more people anyway.

    Cheers Matt. Yes - the pub in West Acre have been brilliant with speedy service and good grub. I think that cool brewery could be a separate trip one day.

    Many people have been on this ride before. But if you haven't - rest assured, it's always a good day and even though it sounds long, Norfolk miles do roll pretty easily, especially when chatting and drafting along in the bunch. Go for it!

  • Requested the day off so I should be able to attend.
  • The Stag at West Acre have confirmed they are OK to have us for lunch. I have set up another thread for people to make their choices if required...

    Rhubarb's can't accommodate us on the morning. They're on hols. I will think of an alternative start location.
  • Please add me to the growing list, thanks !
