Great turnout for the 3 groups meeting at Bell Lane. The B+ and D+ sharing Linton's route to Bodium with the D+ leaving a little later to avoid overloading The Hub, our cafe stop. 7 D+ riders followed the route to Frittenden where Phil joined us having missed his B+ start. A great route skirting Biddenden and through Sandhurst with a few stiff climbs to get to The Hub to find the B+ already seated under a parasol and being served with some great food causing us some serious food envy. Fed and watered and minus Phil, who joined the B+ group for his return, we were back on our bikes for the climb out of Bodium for a route back taking us up Conghurst Lane to avoid Hawkhurst. Through Hartley south of Cranbrook for a fast run to cross the A262 where we then enjoyed a great run down Goudhurst Lane back to Staplehurst. A great route, thanks Linton.
