A Flat(ish) Kent Ride
Saturday, 04 October 2014, 10:00 @ Paddock Wood Station main entrance or 8.45 at Bromley South station (forecourt)

Saturday 4 October. Meeting @ Paddock Wood Station main entrance from 10.00am for a 10.30 start. I am leaving it open for people to make their own way to Paddock Wood as last time people came from all different directions and using different modes of transport.

Andrew Fergar will be at Bromley South Station at 8.45am so anyone wishing to get a group saver ticket with him please be prompt.

The ride is a distance of 46 miles with at least half a dozen ramps on the way but not hills as we know them in Kent; the longest being at the end of the ride. The route takes in a small part of the flat Kent ride done a few weeks back but is still nearly all country lanes with very little traffic.

I am planning to stop a while at Headcorn aerodrome to watch the parachutists if they are jumping on the day but it will be a brief stop.

Lunch will be at the Bell and Jorrocks pub in Frittenden after about 26 miles. They have a new chef who has created a wide range of meals to choose from.

If there are no delays we should be back at Paddock Wood by 5.00pm.

Bring water, spare inner-tubes and lights.

First Sunday of the Month Ride
Sunday, 05 October 2014, 10:00 @ Norman Park, Hook Farm Entrance

In 2013 we organised a number of Sunday rides which were very popular and we are continuing these rides this summer.

They will be on the First Sunday of the month which will mean they do not clash with bank holidays and other obviously important dates and events.

As per last year we shall meet at the Hook Farm Entrance to Norman Park at 10 am. and go for a bike ride.

There are three ride levels which we think cater for a range of abilities and will prove popular again.

Gentle - Our easiest ride, slow paced and traffic-free, suitable for all ages. Perhaps you’ve not ridden a bike for a while and you’re looking for the easiest way to get back in the saddle? Ride Easy is about building confidence for all abilities and ages in a relaxed, traffic-free, gentle environment.

Leisurely Adult Ride - A leisurely ride at a relaxed pace around local roads, why not join us on this adult two hour ride.

Family Ride - A great ride on roads, through parks, on tracks for families.  Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.

There is sometimes a Dr Bike to make sure your bike is up to the challenge....... But are you?

Ashford Loop
Sunday, 19 October 2014, 08:15 @ Orpington Station Taxi Rank Side

A new ride for Bromley Cyclists.  We will catch the 08.35 train from Orpington and travel to Ashford International railway station.  Return tickets around £20 each, but if there are enough of us we will benefit from a group saver, which should save us around a third.

From Ashford we will follow the East Stour river intially, avoiding some of Ashford's busier roads, making our way south through Bilsington and on to Newchurch where we will stop for our morning coffee around 11.15 at the local church. (Lovely home made cakes here).  After coffee we head towards Greatstone on the coast and we could encounter a bit of a headwind for the next bit.   Along the coast to Lydd-on-Sea and then turning inland to Lydd and on to Camber, using the cycle path.  From Camber we will stay on the cycle path most of the way until we reach Rye, our lunch stop.  We hope to arrive here between 1.30-2.00 and depending on numbers will visit the local pub/pubs for lunch or a drink.  Feel free to bring a packed lunch with you if you prefer.

After lunch we now set off along Military Road, a lovely straight road with no hills, following the River Rother.  We knew that after such a relatively flat ride there had to be a few hills and as we turn left off the Miliary Road, Knock Hill is certainly that, albeit rather short.  From the top of Knock Hill are fantastic views stretching to the coast.

We travel west until we reach Tenterton before turning east and making our way back to Ashford, avoiding the busier roads where possible.  The after lunch stage is hillier than the morning section with a few significant climbs, but we won't be rushing.

This is an all day event.  Rider Leaders Eve/John  Please make sure you meet us on the taxi rank side of the station if you are meeting at Orpington as the box office the other side will be closed.  Coming down the hill this is before the railwaybridge on the left hand side.   BRING LIGHTS  I THINK SOME PEOPLE WILL WANT TO TRAVEL FROM BROMLEY SOUTH STATION -  JOHN WOOD WILL MEET AT BROMLEY SOUTH STATION AT 8.00AM AND I WILL MEET AT ORPINGTON AT 8.15.  ALTERNATIVELY SEE YOU AT ASHFORD INTERNATIONAL AT 9.30AM.

London to Brighton with the Vintage Cars
Sunday, 02 November 2014, 08:00 @ Bromley South Station Forecourt

We will meet at Bromley South Station and cycle  to Croydon to meet the Vintage Cars as they drive through the area on the A23 and this is where we will team up with other cycling groups for the ride down to Madeira Drive, Brighton with these beautiful old cars. Please do not be late, this will be a long day and we do not wish to delay the start.

Last year the Scouts or a similar organisation had set up a bacon sarnie and tea stall (with toilets) about 20 miles into the ride, this is a regular feature so we will have a mid morning refuel stop here. There will be a stop for lunch either at Crawley or nearby. Please bring a picnic if you wish. At the Brighton end of the ride there is a route that we used last year which avoided Ditchling Beacon and I will use this route again.

This is a longish ride (c.60 miles) but the pace will be steady, there will also be opportunities for those who wish to cycle faster to team up with other quicker cyclists and then we can all regroup for a coffee or something a little strong on Brighton Pier. How much fun is that on a Sunday in November?

The return journey is by train, although some real hardcore cyclists just turn their bikes around and cycle straight back again, there are regular services back to East Croydon and Central London.

You will require lights for your bike, please also bring spare inner tubes to fit your tyre size, snacks and drinks
