Last Sunday saw 14 riders set off from Wombwell on the Anthony Lodge Memorial Bike Ride to Cusworth Hall and back on the Trans Pennine Trail. Tony was a popular and well-respected member of Birdwell Wheelers who sadly passed away suddenly 12 months ago while out riding his bike. The event was organised by his son Nathan Lodge in remembrance of his father. All 14 riders completed the 30 mile ride successfully.
