Firstly a huge thanks and well done to Big Tony for grasping the responsibility  to quickly plan and lead us to Penhurst.  Typical Tony though....HILLS, he clearly loves the inclines, but then again don't we all!

The route was excellent and especially as the planning was off the cuff, but all with a high degree of confidence and enthusiasm. We headed toward the Pilgrims Way to the peculiarly pronounced village of Trottiscliffe, Through Addington, Offam and then through some lovely countryside to Crouch, Dunks Green, and Plaxtol.  Nearing Hildenborough we were confronted by a very Victor Meldrew, who insisted we need to consider where we wait at the side of the road.  Many descriptions of the concerned fellow were voiced, gladly all appropriate but all diplomatic and tactful!

Stopped at Penhurst where the poshest beans on toast was served up to Ian Johnston, pic on Strava.

Headed back through Tonbridge, Plaxtol up to Ightham then up onto the Pilgrims way to Old London road.  Fantastic route enhanced by the banter along the way.  AB Flapjacks (best ever), to finish off a great day.

Mention in Despatches (MID) for Tony, thank you, a fab route, ....clearly born to lead.
