A pleasantly warm morning welcomed 13 riders initially at Yalding.Good to see Ray with us again after his altercation with an errant barrier in Calais a few weeks ago).A run out to Hawkhurst seemed like a good idea,so with Richard at the front the outward bound turned out to be a bit lumpy after the first flat roads through Benover.It was then up to Horsmonden and Skirting Goudhurst,before the undulations around Glassenbury and the stop at the cafe at Hawkhurst crossroads who were very welcoming. The return took a different route by going out to Hartley and Cranbrook,before Sissinghurst( love the metal Penny Farthing  bike/ flower display in the village) and Frittenden. It was back  on the flat after that all the way past Staplehurst,to Sheephurst Lane  and Collier Street,by which time a couple of the riders had dropped off for a quicker way home.A distance of 43 miles at about 14 mph average.
