Russell stepped forward to lead the ride from Lenham with a group of 11,including Caroline, who now being semi retired joined the group for the first time.The morning started bright and the route out went out to Charing and Westwell to Boughton Aluph,when Peter suggested taking a bigger looped ride before the break,as he knew a lot of the local lanes.Firstly going through Wye onto lovely,but quite hilly roads to Brabourne and Brook,where Denise dropped off as it went past her house.It was then onto the stop at the cafe in Wye.It was very busy,but the staff were excellent.Russell then retook the lead,and took the group into more new territory up the puff of White Hill towards the Challock area.The country lanes were playing havoc with Ralph's waggly rear mudguard,which found it's way into a local wheelie bin.With rain clouds really gathering,it was onto Stalisfield,before the nice descent of Hubbards Hill,and into the heavy rain back to Lenham.A distance of 40.5 miles miles at about 13 mph,and over 2250 feet of ascents.Thankyou Russell and Peter for a lovely ride.
