A cold ride from Chestnut Street To Faversham. 29/11/17

After the large turnout of the previous two Wednesday’s,a smaller group of 10 arrived at Chestnut Street.All wearing winter clothing  to combat the icy northerly wind,Russell and Richard did a joint lead on a very traditional route to Faversham.The way out as usual went via Borden,Bredgar and Teynham.The puncture devil struck just after Luddenham,surprisingly wuth a new Swalbe Marathon  tyre on Tony M’s bike.With Gary on hand,(as always thank goodness),to help fix it,Russell led half the group on to the Swan cafewhilst the rest remained to assist,and later joined them.The stop remained as good as ever,even if the service was a bit slower than normal.A  usual return leg  to Painters Forstal,when the puncture devils mate struck again,this time for Brigitte,but  no prizes for guessing who was on hand to help.Good old Gary..There must be some SFA CC award for the puncture supremo.Perhaps we ought to put it to the committee!. After that it was fairly uneventful,through Newham,Tunstall and Borden.A distance of 33 mikes at a steady 12 mph,in the dry.
