Flat, surprisingly varied, often isolated but with odd flashes of my childhood – beach huts, large families in anoraks, wind breaks firmly planted in the sand.
- 47 miles, starting at Herne Bay station and ending at Dover Priory station, with good weather throughout
- Coastal route, mostly flat, mostly on traffic free roads (although the approach to Dover was more hilly and some of it involved riding with traffic)
- Rode a touring bike, which was fine, although a Mountain or Hybrid bike would probably have been a better choice for some sections
- Took about five and a half hours from start to finish, four and a quarter of those actually cycling at an average speed of about 11 miles per hour
