This is a second group, led by Katherine, travelling to Ramsgate and return on different trains to the first group. We will try and arrange for both groups to combine at some stage.

Join Katherine to catch the 9:59 train to Euston, ride to St Pancras then a train to arrive Ramsgate 12:27. Cycle the Viking trail, a quiet road and coastal trail (well surfaced). Hopefully anti clockwise so we can have a sea front lunch snack but clockwise if strong coastal breezes from the north. About a third of the route is coastal, from Ramsgate to Reculver then quiet lanes back to Ramsgate. Evening meal at the very large seafront Wetherspoon aiming to return on the 20:20 from Ramsgate arriving Watford 23;19 or earlier train. Approximate fare £37 with railcard or group saver tickets. The Viking Trail web site is at . If the ride is full, register on the Lets Ride waiting list and email [email protected].

Lights will be needed for the return journey.
