On a bright but chilly morning 13 of us set off from Staplehurst towards Curtis Green along the country lanes and had an undulating ride through Brenchley then Laddingford before arriving at Brookside Garden Centre, East Peckham for lunch. Linton, Dee & Anita then made their own way home to Ditton and the remaining 10 of us headed back. The ride home was mainly flat cycling through Yalding, Benover, Hunton (avoiding the hill! ) and after crossing over the A229 at Linton Hill continued along the lanes back to Staplehurst. No punctures or incidents thankfully even though we faced two young drivers on the road with no respect for cyclists. The total distance was 34.2 miles with an average speed of 12.7. Thank you to Rachel for helping me reccie the ride!
