Knatts Valley and Kent Lanes
Using the Waterlink Way to escape from London, thereafter mostly quiet lanes and minor roads until we get back to Dartford. Similar to but not exactly the same as rides we did last year to Kent - this time we'll try the fantastic 4 mile Knatts Valley descent. Lunch at a garden centre cafe. About 44 miles for the full route to Dartford, but possible drop out point at Otford (after 30 miles and before the biggest climb) for trains back to London.
Meet at 9.00am on top of the Green Bridge, Mile End Park or meet at 9.15am at Island Gardens by the foot tunnel entrance. Alternative joining points south of the river by arrangement.
Upcoming rides & events
Our rides are highlighted by "RIDE". You don't have to be a member to join in and we're also always looking for new ride ideas. Contact our Rides Co-ordinator for further information.
There is no need to register beforehand for a ride unless this is specifically stated, most rides are "turn up and go".
Please note that for train assisted rides we often cannot publish times until about 2 weeks beforehand because of the need to check engineering works. Also sometimes our ride leaders do have to change dates/times/routes at reasonably short notice. Generally this website will be up to date and also details will be sent out to our email groups, but if in doubt contact the ride leader or our rides co-ordinator to check arrangements.
