Theberton Camping Weekend, Theberton, Suffolk - 11th August

The Bike Club "splinter group" gets its thang on and has an unofficial weekend away at the Lion Inn in Theberton - near Leiston in Suffolk. The pub, rather handily, has a small campsite in the back garden. Facilities are basic, but there's good beer only a matter of metres away, which makes up for it. During the night, DH's snoring is so bad that The Boy Phil is forced out of the tent in an attempt to sleep in the car, only to find that Bill is already there and has locked the doors. Later, we cycle around the countryside via Orford (where Bill famously moons out of an upper-floor window) and Snape.
