Another morning where it would not have taken much to cancel,but 10 well dressed up riders turned up at Wrotham. Russell took the wheel  and his initial idea was a stop at the cyclo cafe Westerham,but a phone call by him  changed things when it was closed for the day. So Plan B was a stop at Chartwell.and with water splashing  the Group headed off . It was pretty much hills all the way.The route went to Crouch and up to Plaxtol and Stone Street,on to Bitchets Green  and the back of Knole Park ,then the climb of Toys Hill,where on better days the views are lovely.  A welcome break at Chartwell,even managing to sit outside. Russ then continued the circular route,by going through Westerham,and onto Otford.Unfortunately the Pilgrims Way was closed towards Kemsing,but with no one working they got through okay.It was then onto the final leg to Wrotham.A distance of 33.4 miles with 2387 ft ascents.Great ride, thanks Russ.
