Today's ride will be roughly 50 miles in length with a fair few hilly bits ( including one near the start ) ...as well as a rather pleasant ridge ride after lunch ...around 3000ft of ascent/descent overall..perhaps a little less . There won't be any off road sections...and 99% of the ride will be on lanes ...some of them very quiet indeed . We'll be having a pub lunch on top of the ridge near Westwell ..a bit over half way round . The ride won't be fast paced and I would estimate being back in Bearsted by 16:30 ( approx ) ... Near the end we will be passing the famed Black Horse in Thurnham – so those that want late afternoon refreshment/eats will be stopping here for a while ....the rest can whizz swiftly back to Bearsted Station .
PS – There will be a chance to but homemade cakes/rolls etc at a deli in Bearsted at the start of the ride .
