Over the North Downs to Faversham
Sun 17th September , 9:15 am - 4:00 pm
We will cycle from Staplehurst to Lenham for an essential early coffee stop, and then hop over the North Downs and on through Doddington to Faversham. If time, we’ll first nip over to Oare and have a look out across the Swale at Harty Ferry. Then we’ll find some refreshments at a café in Faversham and have a quick look around this historic market town and its harbour. Return via Charing Heath and Egerton. Generally scenic route, with a variety of landscapes and pretty villages. Mostly long lanes and not too many turnings to worry about. 54 Miles in total
Return to Staplehurst around 4:00 pm. Option to shorten near the end if we are running late.
We will depart from Staplehurst Station at 09:15 (08:07 train from Battle arrives Staplehurst 09:09, change at Tonbridge – please check for engineering work on the day). We anticipate returning to Staplehurst at about 4:00 pm.
Please bring plenty to drink as it is a longer ride and it may yet be hot. Some snacks would be a very good idea as well.
