February ride: Whitstable

Our next ride will be to the Kent coastal town of Whitstable, famous for its oysters, castle and boat-strewn beach.

Date: Sunday 28th February

Time: Meet 9.30am

Location: London Bridge, just outside Evans Cycles (corner of Tooley St)

Distance: 62 miles

Projected arrival time: Approximately 5pm

Return journey: Trains depart twice an hour and take an hour and a quarter to reach London Cannon Street or St Pancras / Stratford

What to bring: lights for your bike, snacks for the journey, togs for swimming, cash for fish & chips

What to expect: A small, friendly ride at conversational pace. The route is on a mixture of roads and traffic-free cycle paths. If we reach Whitstable at low tide we can walk out on ‘The Street’ sand spit. If it’s high tide we’ll swim in the cold cold waves!
