Dover - Ride

If anyone is keen for a ride to Dover tomorrow please let me know - I am quite keen to test out my new bike.

Any particular reason for choosing Dover? Of all the Kentish seaside resorts/ferry terminals I think that’s probably the worst one…

Where are you starting from?

What time?

What is the proposed route? (Scenic or motorway?)

:slight_smile:

Well I am keen to go anywhere really - I am open to suggestions? I went to Clacton the other day - mmm not the best place I have ever visited - what’s the best sea side resort? with the best scenery along the way? I would prefer to avoid motor ways, although a little motorway is not a problem - only received my bike today.

What bike did you get? How far do you want to go and where are you starting from? How many miles to your first service?

So your going to Winchester, nice little town. I used to visit a second cusin there.

yeah there some good places to stop there - roads are apparently good

I can’t wait to do rides like that at the moment I am still learning to deal with main roads and I probably would need a better bike lol.
