Sunday: Eggy bread for everyone before packing the bikes and heading north. the ELEMNTs took us first to Beccles, a market town that sits at the entrance to the Norfolk Broads, before carrying on to the chain-link ferry at Reedham.
As this is the only crossing point of the River Yare for a long way, the ferry is a great way of cutting a huge loop off a ride if you’re in a rush to get up to Norwich, as we were that morning. As we sped towards the Broads, a quick Twitter search revealed that a friend of RMNC, Neil Philips, had made his way into the day’s most decisive move, featuring a slew of WorldTour pros including Ian Stannard and Ben Swift. Off the ferry and back on the bikes, we pressed on, now more determined to get to the finish before the peloton did.
