Does anyone have the name of that pub we stopped at? the one where we got water.. as I am thinking of taking the family to Ightham Mote and then going there after.


Itscalled The Beeches, where Seven Mile Lane meet Beech Road. Just avoid pronouncing Ightham & Wrotham otherwise you may not be given a table.

We have to go back to do the 2nd loop proper, although I quite liked the 1st loop too.

Bugeye, I will PM my login details for OS maps so you can play around with it and the route (is already saved) or create one from scratch.

Looks a good ride, Wrotham is pronounced rootham, and ightham is item. Spent 2 years at uni down there and took 12 months to realise where the locals where talking about dispite driving past it going to and from.

Would be interested in the routes if you have a gpx handy.

Yeah, we figured that out in a slightly embarrasing way. Ciar and I had about six attempts trying to tell the landlady where we're cycling to. 2 mins later we were getting nowhere so I spelled it. She said 'Item'...ciar & I went 'Que?'.

Epic riding and a lot less people than surrey.
Can't wait to go back and explore the single track that led off :)

Cool picture, love the way in the second pic we all look like we know where we are and going lol.
jealous of the baguette though looks like the second loop was well worth it.

those climbs even when not on the bike were grueling lol but we got to do a few downhills with some serious steps. Going to have to work on my drop offs though because I almost fell forward a few times.

Think I can get a GIF file from the app I used if thats any help to anybody.
very good half day for me.....ps whens the next adventure :clap:
