Cycling at Puddletown Forest

The Cycling group went for an off-road challenge last week and visited Puddltown forest.

We parked near Thomas Hardy’s birth place, for a spot of culture. We couldn’t afford to go inside so stood on each others shoulders and peered through the windows. All very Beano.

Our maintenance skills were put to the test as we had to fix a puncture in the middle of the forest with minimal tools and no bowl of water, but thanks to Michael’s super hearing and puncture spotting ability, we fixed it whilst eating lunch.

Mick got lost and claims he ‘couldn’t see the direction arrow we left for him on the ground even though it is claerly visible from outer space. He was obviously never a Wilderness Explorer.

A great afternoon cycling off road was had by all

    I love cycling in these woods….brilliant.

    They are also the main character, for me, in Thomas Hardy’s Return of the Native.
