Bromley, Bromley, Greater London BR1
Meeting Points :
Bromley South Station Forecourt at 08:55 for the 09:14 to Otford
Otford Station on the Sevenoaks bound platform at 09:37
NB – The train from Bromley South to Otford passes through Crofton Park at 09:00 and Catford at 09:03 Today’s ride builds on the experience gained in the Bromley To Fokestone Ride
In 2013 – we cut out most all the busy roads by starting from leafy Otford – and some of the hills too, as well as shortening our journey to 60 miles or so .
There will be two fairly serious ascents near the start – but after that ….not a lot ! At least half of the route is more or less flat , so we can keep up a fair speed (11-14 mph on the flat – rather less on hills!) …without getting overtaxed – this is your chance to cover quite a bit of ground, perhaps challenging your personal best …and being lead by someone (me that is) who is very far from a speed merchant …and I never wear lycra!
I anticipate getting to the Bell & Jorrocks in Frittenden by 13:00 approximately (perhaps earlier) – where we will have lunch (do drop me a line if you want lunch – just in case there turns out to be a lot of us).
Once we reach the sea-side at Hythe, we will have a little photo/paddling stop… to celebrate our achievement… after which we will have one last mini beastly hill to surmount… then onto trains home.
I would hope to catch the 17:14 (or 18:14 at the latest) from Folkestone Central – which goes to Charing Cross and stops at Sevenoaks, (change for Bromley or Catford Loop) then on to Orpington and London.
If we do get homeward bound early enough – then we might want to celebrate our achievement in the Shortlands Tavern afterwards.
In groups of 3 we will be able to use group saver options:
Bromley South – Otford, cost pp will be c.£4.60 depending on numbers.
Folkestone – Bromley South, cost pp will be c.£18 pp once again depending on actual numbers travelling.
