Saturday Ride – 13th July. Meet at 10:15 on the south side of Sidcup rail station, in Jubilee Way (postcode DA15 7AW). About 24 miles, riding at moderate pace. Mostly on quiet roads and a few off road paths : several steady climbs and long glides downhill.
From Sidcup via St Mary Cray and Chelsfield to Halstead and Knockholt. Then towards Tatsfield and the crest of the North Downs, and Woldingham, followed by a tranquil glide through Marden Park. Probable stop for lunch at Coolings Garden Centre in Knockholt.
Bring an Oyster card or similar for return by train via London Bridge, for example from Whytelafe South. Energetic riders may wish to find own way back on Sustrans national route 21 from Woldingham to Lewisham.
