Kentish North Downs Road Cycle from Headcorn (54 km)
6 people attending
6 places left
Headcorn lies at the centre of a network of rural lanes on the southern side of the Kent North Downs. We will climb steeply for the first few km, followed by a steep descent past the estate of Leeds Castle. Passing under the M20, we'll head through Hollingborne, and climb to Broad Street and Hucking to find fine views to the south. Coppiced woodland gives way to orchards as we navigate our way through a maze of lanes back to Headcorn. This will be a glorious ride if we are blessed with good weather.
This is ride 8 in Nick Cotton's Cycle Tours of Kent and East Sussex.
What to bring
You must have a road bike for this ride.
A helmet is mandatory and must be worn while riding at all times, and anyone without one will not be permitted to start.
Please also ensure you bring: spare tube; pump; puncture repair kit; and wet weather gear.
Food & drink
Please bring plenty of water, snacks and energy bars or gels. We will stop for lunch at a suitable midway point, but there is no guarantee of finding a shop or cafe to buy it from, so please bring a packed lunch.
