Hello ladies and welcome to your next adventure

I will be meeting you at 0800 hours at Cowstead Corner on the cycle path on the Sheppey Way.

We will be heading to The Kings Ferry Bridge, once over the bridge we will continue to the lovely village of Iwade. Once in Iwade we continue towards Kemsley along Grovehurst Road then passing over the two roundabouts and on to Swale Way, once on Swale Way we will continue alone the cycle path towards Central Park Dog Track
Once we pass Central Park Dog track we now head into Murston and make our way to Tonge Road. We then ride through the small village of Tonge and pass the mill along Church Road joining Hempstead Lane. Once at the top of Hempstead Lane we briefly go onto the A2 and turning left into Panteny Lane......... This is our first hill.............. come on ladies you can do this. Once we have completed this hill we loop round to Church Street and have a steady climb to Rodmersham Café.
After a bite to eat we are now back in the saddle heading home. Along Stockers Hill (downwards) and on to Grome Road. Cross the road on to Tunstall Road. We continue to cycle through Tunstall towards Oad Street then one to Borden. We pop out on Chestnut Street next to The Tudor Rose and head towards Keycol round about. Depending on the traffic, this is a busy roundabout so riders may be asked to dismount to cross the roundabout - Claire will make that decision on the day. Rider to continue along Bobbing HIll and left into Cold Harbour Lane. We are now on our way home and heading back to Iwade and The Kings Ferry Bridge.
