After heavy overnight rain,it was surprising that 8 riders ventured for a start at Yalding Station,but with the forecast of brightening up,they set off heading for Poult Wood golf club,Shipbourne .Richard led and headed off in completely the opposite direction to Collier Street,and up to Brenchley,before returning to the flat of Golden Green and Tudeley to the golf club. A pleasant  and reasonable stop.  With ever darkening skies,the group set off again to Hadlow,and East Peckham,where the rain started in earnest,and got continually  worse for the final stages through Laddingford to Yalding,by which time it was bucketing down,unfortunately  for those cycling home through deep puddles.A distance of 28 miles at about 13 mph average,thankfully without incident.
