A lovely sunny Autumnal start from Headcorn,with Richard leading a group of 13 on a very flat ride heading to Ashford.A loop towards Egerton,then out to Pluckley,and Bethersden on very quiet lanes.A short section of the busy A28 into Great Chart,before getting back  to tranquility through Great Chart,before the heavy traffic going into Ashford.The break at the Old Foundry cafe was excellent as always in value and service.An even flatter ride back through the Etchenden Forest and Wissenden,passing Budd's farm,of Darling Buds of May fame to Smarden before the finish at Headcorn ,without incident.A shorter than normal ride of only 30 miles,at about 12.5 mph average.
