Ride - Saturday 14th January

Due to anticipated icy conditions both official D and D+ rides were cancelled.  However three intrepid riders turned up at Aylesford hoping for a ride so Jim Ray, Juan Ramiro and Russell set off for Rochester along the new Peters Village lower road to Wouldham, Borstal and Rochester Castle.  Finding the roads acceptable we decided to continue to Upnor to see our second castle and then on to Hoo for a welcome break at a newly refurbished Taggs.  An extended break in the warm then our return joining Cycle Route 1 to Chattenden and Frinsbury.  Following the lumpy upper road from Borstal towards Bluebell Hill and back to Aylesford.  Just 26.7 cautious miles at an average of 11 mph.

    Well done Russ,wish I had gone to the start by bike,instead of car,and I would have joined you.Think I should have waited a bit longer before cancelling the ride,but it certainly thawed quicker than predicted.Oh well! Anyway,pleased that the ride went well,
