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.
A small but enthusiastic group of Rye Wheelers meet at Appledore Bridge every Tuesday at 1 pm. and enjoy a short gentle pace ride of 20-30 miles. The group varies in size from four to eight regular riders who always manage to find a refreshment place somewhere on the route.
Well done to our volunteer website manager, Dace Homa, who finds enough time in her busy life to put post after post from back issues of Rye’s Own, Hastings Town and Cinque Ports magazines and archives into the Rye’s Own Website.
