For my first D Group lead 10 of us (including a new lady Karen) left Mote Park on a slightly cool but Sunny morning in the direction of Weavering Street to Detling. On the Pilgrims Way Natasha successfully had a blast for a Strava segment PB and met us at the Dirty Habit. Then we headed towards Harrietsham via Greenway Court Road and luckily the places I thought might be flooded weren't. We then took East Street to Lenham where unfortunately Natasha had 2 punctures to her front tyre in quick succession!! Coffee stop was at the church which as usual was very welcoming. The return leg saw us heading to Grafty Green before conquering Ulcombe Hill.
Nice run along Kingswood and Chart Sutton to Boughton Monchelsea and Boughton Lane where we started to say goodbye to people..... Valerie, Bob and Jane
Then we navigated Pheasant Lane before turning into Cranbourne Avenue and entering Mote Park via the Claygate entrance.
Ride was 28.2 miles at 11mph with climb of 1373ft
Heard from Natasha that unluckily she had a 3rd puncture to the back tyre on her way home but luckily it was close to her home so not too much walking.
