Tuesday Ride: 10th January 2017

Another uncold day. John D led the way to the Pond cafe at Otford via the punishing Beddlestead Lane. Thence the gentle up’n’downers to Knockhold and the dive down the North Downs to Otford. A lovely cafe but only two staff do find it hard to water and feed all fifteen of us. They are adverstising for more staff …

We then crossed the green to Otford Palace. Or rather the last remaining remnant of one of Henry V111’s grand palaces. You can read more about it here: http://www.heritagedaily.com/2013/11/otford-the-lost-palace-of-henry-the-viii/3718

Back via the Pilgrim’s Way. About 37 miles with a moving average of 10.45mph.
