A small turnout of only 6.Rachel,Lisa,Ralph,Brian,Tony M and Richard,at East Malling on a day which was forecast as rain.Richard led,and went out through the Research Centre,to Aylesford then over the Peters Bridge to Snodland and Paddlesworth.There followed a loop around Trottiscliffe,and Pilgrims Way to the ever popular and great value Oakdene cafe.With the weather closing in a bit ,it was a fairly short return leg,through Offham,where Ralph peeled off,and Tony said that he would like to go to West Malling cycles at Ryarsh.Rachel spied a small tricycle without handlebars on the forecourt and decided to try and take a ride,without too much success,as it had a will of it's own.Nice photo opportunity though!. Back on the road,it was a new experience going through the  Leybourne Chase estate,on the site of the old hospital.With it now raining a little harder ,Tony said his farewells,and it was back to the start via West Malling.A shorter than usual distance of only 27 miles at about 12 mph average.

    And the moral of this story is ......
