The 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.

DSCN3220 folkestone centralI 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.
