Rye, Dungeness, Hythe, Romney Marsh (full)

Sorry, this ride is now fully booked
A Level-2b long distance flat ride. 53/67 miles, suitable for a hybrid or road bike.
I have a route planned but we really need calm mild weather, it’s so difficult to know in advance if we’ll have this. I do have a mostly inland route as an alternative just in case the weather lets us down. Only about 30 miles though.
Please meet me at Pett village hall (free parking) at 10am with lots of snacks, water & padding.
Lunch is planned at Dungeness fish hut (amazingly tasty food)
We hug the coast all the way to Hythe and return through quiet country lanes.
When we reccied this we didn’t get back until 7.30pm so only come out to play if you don’t need to be back at any specific time.
Option to join us at Rye harbour where you can park free. This will cut down the mileage by about 14 miles.
Please let me know if you fancy this adventure 🙂
Places limited to 8.
Please bring your ice number on a piece of paper.

Isle of Oxney and beyond

A combo of favourite lanes with some great views across the Rother Levels, Isle of Oxney and beyond. Its quite hilly (with the S Downs Way in mind) with some steady and some sharper gradients and plenty of shade in the latter 1/3 post Tenterden (through woods, vineyards and hop gardens) when we all might be wilting a little. It starts (and finishes of course) at the GP surgery car park in Northiam, close to Will’s Cafe (if you’d like a coffee on arrival and lunch later).

A ride at Level-2b grade, hilly 44 kms, suitable for a hybrid or road bike. There will be a refreshments stop after approx. 1hr 30 or 25km at Silcocks Farmshop.

From Northiam, through Beckley, down to the Rother (mind the swimmers), up to Wittersham, then skirting Stone (unless we want to see the view of the Marsh and the Royal Military Canal (will add 4km), up from Reading Street on the long steady ascent to Tentderden and then to Silcocks Farm Shop.

From there along the wonderfully named Gribble Bridge Lane past Biddenden Vineyard and then Benenden Hospital (East End), a sharp dip and hill up to Benenden proper, past the Bull (unless we are weak) and then cross country to Sandhurst (quite hilly). Then back Northiam via Newenden along the A268 (sorry it can’t be avoided – but traffic should be light). Over the Rother (past the Boating Station), and then one last energy sapping climb that starts to ease off for the last 0.5km through the village and back to the surgery car park.

Should be back by around 1.00pm depending on how long we stop at Silcocks.

We’ll follow COVID guidelines with a preferred maximum of 8 riders.

Please bring your ICE details on a separate piece of paper.
