The annual outing on two wheels for the St Mark's ringers and friends this year took us to east Devon in a circular route involving four towers starting from Buckerell. Graham Tucker had done a wonderful job sorting out the flattest route possible except for the bit immediately after lunch which involved 2 black arrows according to the map I was looking at! Needless to say most of us walked (especially after filling our tummies so much) but hats off to Andrew and Guy who managed to cycle all the way.
A total of about 15 miles was cycled, avoiding main roads and using some "interesting" paths & bridleways including a ford! There were 17 cyclists including the "tag-along" for Toby (I think he was helping).
There was some ringing, the sun shone and we enjoyed ourselves. We finished in Whimple at Matt & Rosie's house for a BBQ. Cooking 23 sausages, 23 bugers, 23 chicken thighs, 23 ribs & 23 skewers takes a long time! We sat outside as long as we could and then moved inside for puddings.
Thanks to Graham for organising and everyone who came.
