A windy, dry and later sunny ride to Tunbridge Wells - 26th August

A great turnout of 12 SFACC members and a guest at the King & Queen for our planned ride to Dunorlan Park.  Despite the overnight storms and continuing windy conditions we set off in 3 distinct bubbles, each having its own leader with route and a back marker.  A previously tried and tested route took us to West Malling, Offham, Comp and Crouch.  On approaching Tonbridge we met the challenge of the A2014 roundabout to get us on to the celebrated A21 traffic free cycle route to Pembury.  Just before the hospital we took the bridleway across the A21 to be met by our only fallen tree of the day in Robingate Wood.  Cycling along the A264 segregated cycle path to get to our sunny detsination of Dunorlan Park.  A socially distanced gathering enjoying our take-aways refuelled us for a walk through the park around the lake to exit on Hall's Hole Road for an undulating back lane ride into Pembury.  Back through Brenchley and Yalding losing a few riders seeking their direct routes home at Wateringbury.   37 miles, 2600 feet at ban average of 11.8 mph.
