This organisation have their annual meeting in London at the start of March. I wonder if it would be worth going along? I don’t consider myself a pilgrim due to my complete lack of any religious belief, but could be interesting. It describes the meeting on their website: “The Practical Pilgrim Day will start at 12:00 with a review of the route and its history, waymarking, maps & guides. This will be followed by a question and answer session and then we will split into separate groups for walkers and cyclists. There will be a lunch break and afterwards a talk on the Via Francigena. We round the day off with a short walk and then a drink and meal.” The other thing, apart from my own atheism, is that I am cycling the Eurovelo 5, not the Via Francigena. It takes place on Saturday 6th March at St James’ Church, 197 Piccadilly, London, W1J 9LL. To think about. Any other atheists out there willing to come along?
