Otford to the Hollow Shore

Saturday 1stJune :

Saturday1stJune2013- - 46 miles, 2400 ft of climbing–moderate pace
Meet: Trevor Hughes @ 0845, Catford Station (not Catford Bridge) for the 0902 train to Otford–ETA09:37
or Andrew Fergar @ Bromley South station (forecourt) 0900 for the0913 train to Otford–ETA09:37
Please buy a single ticket to Otford (we will return from Faversham at the end of the day–the total return fare should be c.£15)

Join us for a relaxed, social, springtime ride from the Darenth Valley out to a 'remote' pub on the Kent marshes, once seen, not forgotten. We'll cycle across country, through beautiful and interesting villages such as Plaxtol, Yalding, and Hadlow (with its immense tower), stop for a pub lunch about half way, then gradually make our way across more nicecountry, past Faversham, and cycle out on the road across the marshes to the Shipwright’s Arms at the Hollow Shore by about 16:00–it's an extraordinary weather boarded hostelry, infused with a peculiar, seafaring, somewhat Dickensian character, and it'sreally worth the trip. There, we plan to have a drink and perhaps some food before returning to London by train from Faversham, 3 miles away (to Bromley c.80 min's), arriving back late evening….. or earlier if you wish, as the trains are quite regular.
Please bring some lights and some inner tubes
