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?)


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?,51.551678,-0.107782%3B9717702056241211128,51.322460,0.156780%3B10063200952555444770,51.268140,0.079190%3B15816955421746853943,51.212220,-0.547450%3B17370239163054412,51.132050,-0.994200%3B13835452541276785113,51.063144,-1.318096&saddr=Drayton+Park+%4051.551678,±0.107782&daddr=A224%2FLondon+Rd+%4051.322460,+0.156780+to:A25%2FBrasted+Rd+%4051.268140,+0.079190+to:A248%2FNew+Rd+%4051.212220,±0.547450+to:Unknown+road+%4051.132050,±0.994200+to:51.063461,-1.318874&mra=dme&mrcr=0&mrsp=5&sz=15&via=1,2,3,4&dirflg=h&doflg=ptm&sll=51.071093,-1.303339&sspn=0.017852,0.037422&ie=UTF8&z=15

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.
