A windy,cold but very sunny start from Yalding,with 11 riders.Tony Palmer graciously offered to lead and headed off for a very traditional ride to Chiddingstone,into a very brisk headwind. Without incidents thankfully ,the route went out to Hadlow and Hildenborough.On arrival at the post office cafe,Chiddingstone,the lady owner came out to say they were refurbishing,so Tony came up with plan B ,which was Penshurst Place.To get there entailed quite a few lumps,but sitting with the warmth inside,and the bright sun streaming through the window made it a good stop.The return journey was a lot flatter,and made even better with being wind assisted.Tony led to Leigh,and then skirted Tonbridge,and on to Golden Green and East Peckham to the finish.A distance of 40 miles at 13.3 mph average.  Thankyou Tony for a lovely ride.

    Seems like I missed a great ride. My Goudhurst Walk was good though. Russell
