We started out on a familiar route through Hindford and the Franktons, and then followed a fast and generally smooth route from Hordley to Baschurch. It was then only a few miles through the Ness’s to our destination, though for the first time we were heading into the wind, and the going proved hard.
The Old Three Pidgeons is a free house which has been run by the same family over three generations. It’s a friendly establishment and serves excellent good value food and drink: well worth re-visiting. The quality of the pub seemed to be matched by the quality of the weather when we came out: blue skies and sunshine, almost spring like.

We had a good ride of 40 miles with the muddiest wettest lanes nearest to Chirk. We’d had a mix of light rain, sharp showers and welcome sunshine on an enjoyable day. The sunshine unfortunately wasn’t an early sign of spring as winter storms are forecast for the weekend.
