Seven for Tea

Rye Wheelers Tuesday Afternoon Ride at Ham Street

 

Seven riders made up the group for a recent Tuesday afternoon ‘gentle ride’ through the lanes of Romney Marsh from Appledore Bridge via Newchurch to Ham Street, where they mad a bee-line for the Cosy Kettle at the Lantern Building in The Street for refreshments.

The ride back to Appledore, through more lanes, totalled another eight miles on the fifteen ridden before the refreshment stop so a total of 23 miles was comfortable enough for riders of any standard.

Come and join us at 1pm. Appledore Bridge on any Tuesday. Good fun for everyone with a bonus of fitness and weight loss. Very little traffic on these Rye Wheeler routes and the sun always shines on Tuesday afternoons.

The Bonfire Boys Song

We are the Bonfire Boys

We are the Bonfire Boys

We know our Manners

We collect the Tanners

We are Respected wherever we go

When we march along Cinque Ports Street

Doors and windows open wide

We’re the Boys that make most noise

We’re the Boys that built the Guy

We are the Bonfire Boys.

(Sung to the tune of Sussex by the Sea)
