Dungeness Fish Hut
This will be a spirited 90 mile ride to Dungeness - not one of my back lane ambles. We will be riding up to the national speed limit where conditions allow ie: 70 mph on dual carriageways and indulge in some overtaking when possible. If you don't keep up you may be left behind.
So if the weather is iffy it will not go ahead - please chack on this website the evening before setting out.
Leaving from Rykas at 09.30 we'll head south on the A24 and then turn left onto the A272 toewards Cowfold. Along this road around 10.40 would be a good place for a ride pass pick up point. Please let me know if you intend to meet us there.
We'll follow the A272 to its end and stop at The Butchers Hook cafe near Haethfield for a coffee break. If you can't spare all day this would be a good place from which to return home.
From there riding East another 45 miles we'll cross the AONB High Weald of Kent, skirt around Camber Sands, (if it hasn't been washed away by a high tide), and have a fishy snack lunch at the Dungeness Fish Hut.
Fishermans rolls - two fillets of the days catch cooked on the grill and served hot in a bun.
Mexican flatbreads - the days catch dressed in lime, chilli, sour cream and coriander.
Lobster and Crab rolls served throughout the summer.
While eating lunch we can gaze at the sea, the two nuclear power stations, the two light houses or even watch the Dymchurch Railway trains in action at the Dungeness Station.
Afterwards make your own way home or follow me up the B2080, A262 and A21 some 55 miles to the A21/A25/M25 Junction near Westerham then do your own thing.
