Tony introduced a new Midweekers ride that saw 13 riders start  from Staplehurst,on an initial chilly morning. Setting quite a pace,the route went out to Frittenden,towards Biddenden and onto Rolvenden and the country lanes past Rolvenden Layne.As the Group was approaching Wittersham Road railway level crossing,the barrier gate was about to shut.The crossing keeper saw the riders through,who then stopped to watch the steam train pass ,and an opportunity for Midweekers  photos  (Thankyou Ian and Keith)..With the weather starting to warm up nicely,Tony kept to the quiet lanes of the Sussex borders to Ebony and the Reading Street garden centre for the break.The return continued the undulating  journey,heading up towards Tenterden,then High Halden,again along lovely quiet lanes.On passing Headcorn Aerodrome,the riders were treated to the site of numerous parachutist dropping(difficult to look up to much as easy to fall off).,before the final leg through Watermans Quarter and Sinkhurst Green to the finish.A distance of 43.5 miles at about 15 mph average.Great ride ,Thankyou Tony.
