After the 3 previous  wet Wednesday’s,17 riders turned up at Yalding in almost  barmy September sunshine. Ray had to drop off immediately when he realised he hadn’t brought the right shoes, and then Ian Johnson led a  classic route out to Chiddingstone castle,with a slight detour along  Nizels Lane .On arrival it was already busy with a large group of cyclists   employees of the cycle clothing company Rapha,on an Away day.They were quickly joined by dozens more,and bikes were strewn everywhere.There were only 3 members of staff,but they coped fantastically well.The return very much took the usual route,via Leigh and Tonbridge,without incident,except for one white van man at Hildenborough deciding that he had been held up too long and squirted water,or windscreen wash was over riders he overtook. A total distance of 37 Miles at a pacy 14.7 mph average. Thankyou Ian.great ride.
