East Malling to Paddock Wood

22/01/2020 17:51 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

A good turnout of 17 at the King & Queen on a dull, drizzly but thankfully not icy morning.  Great to have Ron out with us with his e-Bike.  A good pace with two groups the second led by Tony P through West Malling and Offham to St Mary Platt and Plaxtol.  A smooth run through Tudeley and past the 'Save Capel' posters to Five Oak Green where Pete Searle peeled off.  Into Paddock Wood for a great cafe stop at the Village Cafe with Ron and Tony P leaving us to enjoy it without their company.  Andy TV's bike getting a fit of the sulks whilst we were in the warm greeted Andy on leaving with a flat.  With Andy making his own way we had a good run back through Yalding and the final climb of Red Hill losing a few more riders who peeled off for their own rides home.

32.25 miles at an average of 12.8 mph with 1480 feet of ascent.
