When setting off time had arrived and with no text forthcoming I was forced to leave for Hard to Please House in the rain. Maybe it wasn't so bad in Aylsham I thought.
When I arrived (in heavy rain) Andrew claimed he wouldn't dare call off another ride after the stick I gave him last time so with neither of us wanting to be the one to wimp out we were forced to go. The plan remained to head to Sheringham but at least we agreed to go the direct way.
As we left the the heavy rain turned to sleet which turn to hail which turned to snow all within the 12 mile ride to the cafe.
Our destination was The Sitting room which is next to an Art Gallery on the edge of Sheringham town centre.

|Good AAA as Andrew attemots to warm up|
|Cake selection including croissants which aren't cakes|
|Excellent refreshments espically the hot chocolate|
We were not keen to leave but then the waitress suggested that we go. She was not being rude but said a storm was on it's way so felt we needed to make most of the current lull. As coastal folk know about these things we dashed back to our bikes and set off in the dry. At least, that is, until we got to the top of the road when the rain and snow started again and we got very cold and wet on our return to Hard to Please House.

Next time I plan to follow Cycling guest cycling top tip No. 64.
