A dull but dry morning for a mass meet up at Bell Lane with the D's but just a magnificent 7 for Russell's lead to Tenterden Garden Centre. Out via Frittenden and Buckhurst along the back lanes to High Halden for a short stretch of the A262 to reach the Green and to join Cycle Route 18. Along a quite Plurenden Lane to Great Engeham Manor and the great sweeping descent of Shadoxhurst Road into Woodchurch. Then Appledore and on to Reading Street and the Garden Centre. Great service and then a photo shoot with both Mr & Mrs Claus out for the first time this year and not even December yet! It was back through Wittersham and Rolvenden to Benenden and Glassenbury.
Kept dry, some mucky roads interspersed with some new tarmac and best of all no punctures.
45 miles at 13.7 mph average with 1900 feet of ascent
