Otford to Eynsford loop

Saturday 1st December: Otford to Eynsford loop - c. 40 miles and 3000ft of ascent, quite hilly at times, all on-road. Meet: Trevor Hughes at Catford station (not Catford Bridge) at 0845 to catch the 0903 train to Otford, or meet Andrew Fergar at Bromley South station (forecourt) at 0900 (0913 to Otford) Start December with a trip out to the Kent Countryside, so close to London, yet so far in feel…..we'll arrive at the ancient village of Otford at about 0950; from there, using smaller roads and some lanes we'll cycle up and down some hills, pass through some lovely villages, and climb up gradually to our lunch stop, prospectively the Amazon and Tiger at Harvel. After lunch, there may be one or two hilly sections left, but eventually we'll have a fantastic ride through the Knatt's Valley to Farningham and be back at Eynsford by about 1600, where drinks and some food are planned, or you might prefer to return to the big smoke straight away - trains back into London run twice an hour from Eynsford (30 min's to Catford). Remember, It'll be dark by late afternoon, so don't forget your lights!
