Recreation ride to Gravesend

There were about 10 of us who met up at the ferry terminal in Tilbury for the short crossing to Gravesend.

From there we rode along the bumpy off road cycle lane up to Lower Higham before heading northwards to the bird sanctuary near Cliffe.
We had a short stop to admire the views over the Thames estuary before cycling to Cliffe  with another short stop to look around this picturesque village.
Retuning to Lower Higham. where we decided to return to Gravesend via a different route. It was not too long before we were enjoying much needed refreshments at a cafe along the riverside promenade in Gravesend before taking the ferry back to Tilbury.

All told it was a ride of just under 20 miles at an average pace of 9mph.
