party on 6 of us headed out from snodland on my first lead. I decided to bring my tourer so I could carry plenty of spares as a wanting to impress as first time leader should :).
route took us out along A229(guys on the lightweight bikes did not fancy path through Leybourne lakes) through new Hythe to Aylesford, we then headed up through Eccles and down to motorway crossing through Wouldham. Once over bridge we headed down into outer Strood then up to Higham, Shorne then through Cobham to break at Camer Park. once filled up we headed out through Longfield hill to Stansted and back through Trottiscliffe, Birling and Ryarsh and back to Snodland.(guys turned down the extra loop through Wrotham). totals 38.26 miles, 12.63 avg speed and total climbing of 654Mtrs.
