The D plus ride from Lenham to Headcorn

Seven riders joined Mike on his ride to Headcorn from Lenham. The aim was to do a flattish ride but still incorporate the joys of speeding down Hunton Hill, what goes down must go .....................!  The first obstacle was Chegworth Hill once ascended it was flat or downhill all the way to Headcorn 26 miles. Good progress was being made all the way to Staplehurst when Wendy's tyre picked up a thorn. It was a pig of puncture to repair 45minutes later we continued on to Headcorn. The corner cafĂ© which had undergone a makeover since our last visit provided: good food at a reasonable price in good time. Recommended for the future. For the return one hill of note Egerton. One rider suggested doing Vigo Hill in the future!!! To be incorporated soon. Stats for the ride 39 miles 12.5 mph 1700 ft of climbing.
