Gateway Cycling » Club News » RIDE TO KENT SATURDAY 18th. MEET TILBURY FERRY 08.45…


From Jon Lane

Dear All.

The weather looks good for the weekend, some sunshine, a light breeze but a bit nippy at 7 degrees…

I plan to take a ride to Kent this Saturday 18th – meet at Tilbury/Gravesend Ferry at 08.45 taking the last ferry at 09.00 (no ferries after 9, breakfast break… Next is 10.20) A short ride out to Sole Street, Cobham, Upper Higham, then a quiet zig zag route through the back lanes to the cafe. A bit of hill work and slight traffic to start but all manageable and at an easy pace. All being well we should be back before lunchtime… There’ll probably be wet and mud along the route so leave your posh bike and take a hybrid, MTB or cyclo cross – ideally Gaitor Skin, Scharble Marathon type tyres may be best to avoid punctures….
We’ve done this a few times before, if you wish you can drive to the ferry, there’s usually enough parking space…
I know some of you won’t be able to make this Saturday ride but at the time of typing Dave F is probably doing the regular Sunday run, starting from Bulphan school – 09.30… Also – more rides coming as it warms and the days lengthen…
Please click this round to those who you think would like to ride along…
Whatever – have a good weekend (-:
May see you there … Cheers!

PPS. Plan ‘B’ … If Cliffe cafe happens to be closed!!! – there’s a good alternative in Gravesend… (-:
