An overcast threatening sky saw six riders set off from the new club house to Waldens at Seasalter, being a first for the Amici group. The route took us up the Downs via Hart Hill and onto the A2 passed Painters Forstal. The M2 was shut causing complete grid lock in and around Faversham, which caused some particularly intense cycling. The run in via Graveny saw quite an increase in pace as four Amici decided to chase down a group of renegade cyclist and match them all the way to the cafe. This had the unfortunate effect of dropping two of the group. As the 'four' dropped the chase and turned into the cafe we watched the two lantern rouges happily cycle by into the distance. Following a very pleasant coffee break the regrouped six headed for home via Doddinton and Lenham. An uneventful return saw figures of 63.5miles at 15.1mph with 2500 feet of climbing.
