Wrotham to Aylesford D+ Sat 3rd December 2016

A group of ten riders left Wrotham, lead by Richard Byatt. A tough climb up Fairseat Lane took us to the top of the Downs. After that it was pretty much downhill all the way to the break. After a swift descent of Vigo Hill the route was through Trottiscliffe, across the motorways and A20, through Offham, West and East Malling to the cafe at Aylesford Priory. Fully fuelled, the return leg was through Eccles, up and then down to Peters Village to cross the new bridge over the Medway. Through the back lanes of Snodland to emerge at the bottom of ... Birling (Holly) Hill! Everyone got up in various states of breathlessness. A few more undulations and a minor accident later the group returned to Wrotham via Vigo village. About 25 miles at an average of 12mph with 1,500ft of climbing.
