Despite several sick notes, eleven hardy stalwarts ventured out on a grey and breeezy day from Aylesford to Rodmersham. No doubt it was Tony's impromptu route climbing up Warren Road to reach the top of Bluebell Hill that enticed these stalwarts. An interesting climb in that it was difficult to avoid back wheel spin on the green road whilst dodging the unwelcome cars ploughing down the single lane.
The weather conditions deteriorated after the break with the temperature dropping at least 5 degrees centigrade and the wind strengthening into the stalwart's faces.
A distance of 42.3 miles at average speed of 12.5 mph and elevation gain of 2,651 feet.
