The new starting point at Marden Sports Car Park was warmly acknowledged,and on such a beautiful day,it was hardly surprising that Linton managed to recruit a group of 11 for his lead,especially when he said it was flat. The riders almost equally split between men and ladies,set off amid several other groups and headed out to Milebush and the lanes to cross the A229 near Frankies . On a couple of occasions ,the B+ group seem to arrive at the same junctions,which ensured a jocular banter. The ride continued past Frittenden,when several of the ladies grabbed the lead  on occasions and chatted most of the way to the break at Bethersden Garden Centre..Following a nice stop,Linton ensured a very flat return by keeping to the quiet lanes near Smarden and through Headcorn and Staplehurst back to the car park. Thoroughly enjoyed by all and a distance of 33.3 miles at 13.3 mph average and 116 metres only of soft undulations. Thankyou Linton
