Four riders decided to join Gary for his D ride to Sal & Al's Café (formally Nev's) on the Medway City Estate in Strood. This included two new riders to the group, moving up from the Easyriders, Paul and Nigel.  Riding out through Snodland to Birling, down Birling Road over the M20, across to Park Road and a right through Leybourne up to the junction with the A20.  Then over onto the cycle path towards Kings Hill for a short distance to pick up the path left onto the road to East Malling and through the Research Centre with a strong headwind most of the way.  A fast run down Kiln Barn Road to the lights and across to Aylesford old bridge. Left up the High Street and Bull Lane through Eccles, then left on the Pilgrims Way through Burham and the fast descent to the junction under the M2 bridge.  A short climb up before the descent down Shorts Way into Rochester.  Then over the bridge and right into Canal Road to pass the Russian Sub onto the Medway City Estate to Sal & Al's Café.  Excellent value as always and good quick service.  Distance to Café 18 miles, so only 8 back.  Route retraced back over Rochester Bridge and up Boley Hill (High Street closed to traffic and group decided not to walk through).  Along St Margaret's Street, Borstal and through Wouldham to take St Peter's Bridge back over the Medway and through Snodland to Brooklands. Both Paul and Nigel enjoyed the ride and pace and look forward to joining the group for future rides. Total distance 26 miles at 12.9 mph
