A good turnout at a chilly Lenham saw 12 riders join Ralph for his lead to Ham Street.In addition,John B and John C,decided to do a different ride and 3 members of C Group were also setting off to do their own thing. Ralph took his group out to Egerton and Pluckley and onto Bethersden and Stubbs Cross before the nice stretch of road past Bromley Green to the break at the The Cosy Kettle Cafe in Ham Street ( a new one for the Midweekers). Whilst there,some more Fairies ,Angie and Clive Nye,Chris ,Gary and a friend rode in,so a nice chat with them.Ralph took similar roads back initially ,again passing Stubbs Cross,but then diverting to Hothfield and across the A20 to Westwell. After that it was along the Pilgrims Way to Charing,where Linton dropped off for an appointment and Ralph tested everyone else’s legs by going up Charing Hill.It was then on the flat to Stalisfield Green and the nice descent of Hubbard’s Hill back into Lenham. A distance of 45.1 miles at 14 mph and around 1900 ft ascents. Great ride,Thankyou Ralph.
