It's often said in life it's not what but who you know and today proved that point. On the hottest day of the year 5 riders left Barming for Paddock Wood. At Dunks Green one of the cyclists had a broken spoke it was decided to head for Everdens and Richard Barsley the owner of the dept store in Paddock Wood also invited us to his cafe.  When we arrived at Everdens it was discovered that the mechanic knew one of our riders so the repair was done within the hour. (BINGO)Then when in the cafe Richard generously bought us all tea and coffees. (BINGO AGAIN) We all felt important sitting next to the owner who gave a quick look around his amazing dept store. Back on track with a couple of climbs we were glad in the heat to be back Distance 34 miles Average Speed 13.6 Climb 1400 ft
