D Ride Yalding to Staplehurst

Despite the disappointing weather forecast 8 of us, 6 ladies & 2 men (including Sarah, Donna and Angie who were either joining us for the first or  second time) set off from the station. We headed towards Laddingford, then Claygate, Marden Thorn and followed the windy roads and got to Wilden Park Road when it started to drizzle. However by the time we had climbed Husheath Hill it had stopped! It stayed dry then until we'd nearly reached the A229 where we turned left and cycled towards Staplehurst village and stopped at 'Helen's Cafe' for lunch having cycled 15 miles. Just before 12.30 we continued the ride taking the Headcorn Road towards Hawkenbury and then turned off and followed the country lanes until we joined the A229 very briefly. At the bottom of Linton Hill we headed off along Redwall Lane towards Hunton and soon reached Yalding high street via Vicarage Lane. We arrived safely back without getting wet having completed 29.5 miles at an average speed of 12.4.
