Have we ridden through Britain’s rudest village?

Those of us of a certain age will have fond memories of Viz comic's Finbarr Saunders and his Double Entendres. And many of us haven't grown out of giggling at things that sounds rude – that's why John Whitney couldn't resist a Big Ride through saucy sounding places in the latest issue…

John hit the rude roads of Dorset with Humphrey Butler, the man behind Strumpshaw, Tincleton & Giggleswick Marvellous Maps for an 111km romp through places such as Shitterton, Piddlehinton and Shaggs (fnar, fnar, gibber, gibber). All of these places and, of course many, many more, can be found in S, T &G’s Marvellous Map of Great British Place Names. You can find John’s rude ride in the August issue of the magazine!
