A lovely sunny ride from East Malling to Paddock Wood

How lovely to start seeing riders out wearing the new kit,without fear of it being covered in mud.A beautiful warm morning greeted 16 riders at East Malling,and with Tony Munn eagerly leading went off through West Malling to Crouch,and onto the flat of Hadlow.Carrying on  to Golden Green and Tudeley,where Rachel suggested that we stop at the church with it's famous coloured windows.Unfortunately,there is scaffolding and plastic sheets covering the outside,so we couldn't see them in their true glory.Tony then took the group to the really great cafĂ© stop,called Posh Nosh on theTransfesa industrial estate at Paddock Wood.There we all sat outside in the sun.the food ,service and value being first class.The return was again a pleasant ride,to Yalding and laddingford,where we met up with the 5 Yalding Wednesday riders on their way back.The last leg was the little puff of Red Hill,then through the Research centre.A distance of 32 miles at 13.7 mph average. Well done Tony for a great ride.
