This Thursday, 3rd March, join 30 Mile Thursdays for a 9:30 very prompt start from Kingsmead Square or 9:45 at the entrance to the 2 Tunnels. Rode is noted in Wikipedia for the following attractions: “Rode is home to two village pumps, a mounted plough, a wellhead pump, an elaborate village sign, a flagpole and a war memorial in the form of a cross.” I can hardly contain myself. It is also home to one of the best tea places I have visited, but be prepared to enjoy their home baking al fresco as it is very small. Onwards to Beckington then home for a late lunch. 28 miles on the nail.
As always, we welcome new and novice cyclists and if you leave your lycra at home and walk up hills, you win my vote!
