My lead on Saturday 16/11 and I thought I'd go to the Village Pantry at Aylesford. I went there the other day for the first time with Yalding Velo. It's a very good cafe with safe storage out the back for the bikes.
This week it was great to have Glenn and Jon riding with us again.
A little late, four of us set out from Marden, - to be met by Dave King cycling up the road after underestimating the time it would take to cycle in!
We picked up Glenn at Offam, - he was using a shorter version of my route as a recovery ride.
Weather was good, roads were good and we got to the cafe pretty much bang on the booked time of 1130.
After the cafe stop Dave made off on his own straight for home, and Jon peeled off at Ditton. Glenn's recovery ride took him as far as East Malling leaving leaving three of us to sally forth back to Marden.
