D Group Ride from Paddock Wood to Knoxbridge

06/10/2018 16:19 | Anonymous member

Seven of our enthusiastic cyclists set off from Paddock Wood on a grey autumnal morning heading for the hilly twelve miles around Brenchley and Horsmonden; avoiding a number of kamikaze squirrels and an impatient van driver, who ironically overtook us dangerously only to turn right and park! We were pleased to arrive at the café to warm up, only to find they were too busy to accommodate us, a little frustrating as they knew we were coming. Fortunately, Valerie came to the rescue suggesting we try Frankie’s café, which was only a shortly deviation to the route and who were luckily able to accommodates us.  

Thankfully the rest of the ride proceeded as planned following the lanes around the back of Marden and Pearson's Green, just in time to beat the rain. We covered 33.8miles at an average of 12.11mph achieving an elevation of 1,453 ft.
