At the beginning of the week it was looking promising for potentially 7 hardy riders on the second Baroudeurs ride of the year. Weather was looking good as well for a sunny ride.
However due to various commitments such as forgetting that your bike was in bits the night before, working and a dog walkers sudden sickness we were down to 3. (Myself, Del and Paul G)
We were joined by Paul W and Miranda on their modern bikes to make us 5 who headed off to the Rare breeds centre in Ham street.
We set off from the Hockey and Cricket club at 9.30 after we waited for to see if we had any stragglers turn up. This took us through Frittenden and Biddenden arriving at the Rare breeds in good time. Breakfast was quick and to their usual good standards.
Once fed we headed back through Bethersden and Headcorn to Marden allowing us to enjoy a pint of cabbage water at the club bar and watch some village cricket. It was mentioned that a gym would be good at the club, but not sure if that was for us to use or the fielder at silly point to use.
