A damp and dull ride from Wrotham

On a  dull and drizzly morning which would have been easy to call off,8 riders still turned up fully waterproofed,and with Richard leading headed off for a lumpy ride to Paddock Wood.Firstly it was up to Ightham ,Plaxtol and Shipbourne,before the descent to the flat around Golden Green,before some main roads throughTudeley,Five Oak Green into the Transfesa estate,Paddock Wood and the delights of the TopNosh cafe. Great service and value as always. The return continued the circuitous route going out to East Peckham and Hadlow,before the inevitable climb ,choosing Gover Hill before Crouch,where3 riders dropped off.It was then onto Borough Green and the finish at Wrotham,without any punctures,suprisingly or incidents.A distance of 34.5 miles,at about 12.3 mph and 1850 ft of climbs.
