Here is a lovely ride, organised by our friends at Bigfoot Cycling Club, through the Kent countryside around the beautiful reservoir of Bewl Water. Suitable for young people, adults and children – anyone who fancies a nice easy ride.
Part on road, part off-road ride about 14 miles, with some hills, around Bewl Water – with a shorter 7 mile less hilly all off-road option seeing part of Bewl Water. Both rides will ride together for the first 3½ miles. The longer ride will take between 3.5 and 4 hours, which includes a half way stop at the Bull Inn for drinks, crisps etc. At the end of the ride there is a lakeside café by the car park. The shorter ride doubles back after 3½ miles, would be less than 2 hours and ends at the lakeside café by the car park (missing the pub!). The off road sections are on easy surfaces and the road sections are on quiet lanes. There are a few hills on the longer route.
Ride will keep together as one group, then split in to two groups if some are on the shorter ride. Map provided for those returning on the shorter route.
