When 4 Groups ,B+,C, D+ and D ‘s all start from the same location,you know that it will always be very busy.And so it turned out. However when they all sorted themselves out,Richard was joined by a group of 15 and headed off to The Old Mill cafe,outside Eastchurch prison. With the wind firmly behind it was pleasant cycling on a mild,dry morning,. Going out through country lanes to the Sheppey Bridge,then Halfway,before taking the cycle path to Barton’s Point and Minster.After earlier flat cycling,the lumps started all the way to the break. Unfortunately the cafe had run out of bread,but offered other tasty fayre.Several took the opportunity to visit the onsite Aviation museum which was very interesting.It was inevitable that the return was going to be almost completely into the wind,so progress was a bit slower through Iwade and Newington to the finish.A distance of 35 miles at 12.5 mph and about 500 metres ascents,without any incidents.
