Six riders lead by Mike set off from Wrotham on a hilly ride to the Coolings Garden Centre near Pratt's Bottom. It was a cold crisp day as the group left from Wrotham, along the Pilgrims Way, turning right before Otford Manor and ascending the 14% hill towards Eynsford. At Eynsford passing the ford on to Crockenhill, Kevingtown, Chelsfield and Pratt's Bottom. Climbing Rushmore Hill a herd of deer (12) crossed the road in front of us an amazing sight, and the highlight of the ride! Arthur's a new café at the Coolings did not disappoint despite being extremely busy the food arrived in good time and to an excellent standard, we would give it a good recommendation for the future, and we will be back! The return was via Halsted, Shoreham, Otford, Kemsing and Wrotham. A total of 32 miles average speed 12 mph 2025 ft ascents..
