An average turn out of 7 started off from Chestnut Street.Richard led and in very overcast weather(as usual from ChestnutSt),headed off for a longer ride to Tankerton.They went out via Borden,Tunstall and Rodmersham,then onto Tenyham where Keith got the only puncture of the day.Off again to Luddenham and through Faversham to Graveney,into a very busy Whitstable to the break at a little cafe overlooking the Thames estuary at Tankerton,sitting  out in the very warm sunshine.With the tide out and visibility good,it was most enjoyable.The return leg again took them through Whitstable and around Faversham,then onto Ospringe,Painters Forstal and Newnham.However,the heavy clouds were gathering,and by the time they got back near Rodmersham and Borden,they had to take cover under trees with torrential rain.Carrying on through the puddles to the finish.A distance of 46 miles at 13.6 mph average.
