Barry D. writes… Riders will need a full tank when setting out from Cambridge Services as it is ~150 miles each way! In previous years we’ve picked up a few riders en-route, and I’ll be happy to accommodate in the same way this year. Previous pick-up points were the Duxford roundabout on the M11, and the first planned stop at Oakdene. If you’re in doubt, give me a call
The ride heads down the M11 and over the Dartford bridge to the Oakdene truck stop after ~100 miles. From there it’s across the garden of England to Hythe, Dover (past the castle) and St Margaret’s Bay for lunch. Your phone will tell you that you are in France; on a clear day the French coast is visible
After lunch we’ll head north to Kingsdown & Deal Castle, then west to Canterbury, Chartham and the Hook & Hatchet for a quick stop before heading for the A229, A2, Dartford Tunnel, M25, M11 & home. There is the option to avoid all major roads on the return journey depending on time, weather and forcefulness of the riders!!
Depending on the length of our stops, expect to be back ~7:30pm
This ride is open to full members only
