A huge gathering at Boughton Monchelsea village hall for the annual birthday set of rides. Richard led a joint D Groups ride with 19 . He headed off down Weirton Hill onto the flat of Rabbits Cross then by passing Staplehurst and Marden Thorne to the break at Paddock Wood,where the group divided to various refreshment places. After the downhills of the way out,it was inevitable that there going to be hills on the return,and after the pleasant lowland roads,around Laddingford ,the climbs started going up Kenward Hill to Coxheath,then a quick dash to get to the hall where some stayed for the excellent as always Birthday lunch. A distance of 30 miles. A very big Thankyou to Helen and Jenny for all the wonderful organisation .
