Fat Fingers and The Bell and Jorrocks

We all gathered in Brenchley having vaguely decided to amalgamate D, D+ and B+ into two rides due to the lack of Cafes being open. But there was good turnout so after much fat fingering with poor signal, another route was found and we set off.  We climbed a few hills skirting around Goudhurst and wended a flatter way over to Hawkenbury to spin out the lactic acid. At this point signal dropped and the Strava route disappeared so I decided to wing it whilst pretending I knew exactly what I was doing.  This resulted in a much better stop than The Knoxbridge as the doors of The Bell and Jorrocks, Frittenden opened as we were passing. We were given a very warm welcome from a lovely lady who handed us all not one but TWO menus and offered us tables right next to the woodburner. One for the Café Map we thought, Ron, although they don’t open until 12.00 on a Saturday.  This warm welcome kept us all going against a horrible cold wind all the way back to Brenchley.
