A unique way to experience Kent! Small group, guided cycling tours for all abilities, exploring both little-known places and the more iconic Kent sights.
Taking in several stunning bays, seaside sights, countryside, villages and Britain's smallest town, culminating in a tour of the cultural and historical heart of Canterbury. Along the way, there are frequent stops where Col will share stories about the history, culture and landscape, including little-known local secrets! The tour starts at Margate Station, just 1hr20 on the train from London.
11am // Meet at Margate station where you will be introduced to your fellow adventurers before heading off along a traffic-free coastal path then into the countryside through several quaint villages.
Early Afternoon // Quirky tea shop stop for a quick break (when we can). Lunch stop in Britain's smallest town, then ride along the riverside and through a beautiful wood to Canterbury.
Late Afternoon // A tour of the stunning medieval city of Canterbury.
Either jump on the train with Colin back to Margate or stay in Canterbury, explore, and catch the train back home in your own time.
Some off-road country tracks and a couple of small hills (we can happily push bikes up if we need).
What to bring: Your bike, suitable comfy clothing, water, packed lunch and funds for the train.
Bike Hire: Bikes can be hired for an extra £5. Bikes are supplied by Cyclerecyclekent, a not-for-profit social enterprise. Donated bicycles, refurbished by volunteers to help those with mental health issues. A place where people can work, learn, socialise and support each other there when and as they need.
Does anyone actually know of anyone who has actually spent £3500 on wheels? I ackowledge such things exist, but have never seen them in the wild.
Next time someone says that cyclists can run red lights with impunity, I'll point them in the direction of this case....
If there was ever a survey that could be used to decide if people should hold a driving license this would be it.
Totally understand, HO
The constant announcement and then quiet withdrawal of funds for Active Travel suggests that not only are they not sincere, but actively dishonest...
Indeed - there are always three sides to every story; your version, my version and the truth.

The shorts in that photo should be mosaic-ed. No one wants to see that.
I've tried my best to break these and failed. Dozens of tires fitted. The paperclip is only used when fitting and doesn't bend - it's clamped...
(Another rabbit hole) Word is that the French model wasn't a wonderful weapon and especially not for the battlefields but the story is complicated...
