Lenham to Wye 22nd August

A good turnout of 18 at the Dickley Lane meeting point on a dry morning.  Russell led to Wye and why not?  Taking an anti-clockwise circuit taking in Ham Lane, Sandway, Chilston Park, Egerton and Pluckley before passing Goddington Park.  Crossing the A20 to go up Sandyhurst Lane to pass Eastwell Manor then taking the A251 to Boughton Aluph and escaping a scary moment when a speeding blue light flashing police car headed straight for us on our side of the road.  Arrived at the Wye Coffee & Kitchen cafe in Church Street where service was excellent and they coped with us taking over their busy cafe.  On leaving discovered a lonely bike had repaid us for our lack of attention by presenting its owner with a flat.  Thanks to Gary P yet again for his assistance.  On our way retracing our steps to Eastwell Manor and taking Lenacre Street (NCR 17) to Westwell and Charing.  Then our climb of the day, Charing Hill to return via Warren Street and Hubbards Hill.  33.3 dry miles at and average of 13 mph and 1900 feet of ascent.
