A misty ,murky morning,but 17 riders were not deterred and with Richard leading,set off from East Malling.Good to see a few riders who normally go with the D ‘s trying a D+ ride. The route out took the group through West Malling to Offham and Crouch,where Colin sustained the only puncture,on a tubeless tyre,which needed an inner tube to fix it.After that it was on the flat through Hadlow and Golden Green before the steep climb of Crittenden Road to Matfield and the break at Grays cafe,Brenchley. The return was a bit flatter at first to Yalding before the inevitable clambers of Kenward and Red Hill back to East Malling.A distance of 35 miles at 13 mph and 1900 ft climbs.
