Castle Challenge

Not a ride organised by us, but often several club members join in.
As in previous years there are 25, 40, and 75 mile options

See www.stleonardsrotary.org for details

We know that Fiona is going on the 40 mile route. Let us know if you are going on any of the routes and we’ll try to get people riding together

 


If you’re fancying something a bit different, Geof is doing the Horsmonden ride today, which is another good charity ride

 

Tunbridge Wells Revisited

This ride is back by popular demand, and will start from Tunbridge Wells Station (rear entrance). If you prefer to drive to the start, you can park for free on a Sunday on the roads around Tunbridge Wells Common.  There is no free parking at the station, but it is very close to the common.
We ride out towards Pembury and then take the new A21 cycle path from Pembury to Tonbridge before heading west towards Haysden, Bough Beech and Hever.  From there we head to Fordcombe, Langton Green and Rusthall and back into Tunbridge Wells.   We will stop for lunch in one of the great pubs en route.

This ride is hilly, and has a mixture of off road paths, minor roads, town centre bustle and some short bits of quite major road.  Fabulous scenery throughout and a bit different from our usual rides.

Start 10:30 am from Tunbridge Wells Station (rear entrance).  Approximately 28 miles, Level-2B.

Thought I’d attempt to put my ride on again (which was abandoned in favour of a walk the last time I tried to put it on!).    Hopefully the sunshine is here to stay.

Please join me for a ride I’ve led before, a few small hills but at a slow pace as I’m very unfit….
hybrid or road bikes. We will be riding on a track for part of the route but I find its ok for my road bike.
Please meet me by the 30mph sign at Pett Level… parking along the beach, not opposite the houses as the residents get the hump!
Bring snacks/lunch we’ll stop from lunch & coffee along the way.
We should be back approx. 1pm

Thanks, Penny

18 miles/1200 ft ascent, so hilly, I’ve marked it as a “2B” ride.
Please note the new start time of 9:45am

 


Note, if you are in Battle and want to cycle direct to Westfield (around 5.5 miles) at a “Level 2a” pace then you may prefer to wait until nearer 11ish when Philip’s ride from Little Common passes through Battle.   If you want to do this then please book in with Philip instead of Rob.
