Darling Buds on May Day

For all of you who have other committments on Sundays here's a chance to get out and about with your SCUKY mates on a Saturday. 

As its May Day we'll be off to Kent, (cos Red Square's a bit too far!), we'll visit Maidstone HD and then have lunch at The Rose & Crown, Mundy Bois Road, Mundy Bois, Pluckley, Ashford, Kent, TN27 0ST.  Pluckley is where the series "The Darling Buds of May" staring David Jason as Pa was filmed. 

We will leave the Cobham Services on the M25 at 10.00 and then pick up at 10.30 at Godstone Pond Car Park, High St., Godstone, RH9 8DU, (LINK) after which we'll be on the A25 and A20 arriving at Maidstone HD by 11.30. Leaving at 12.00 we'll continue on the A20 to arrive at the Rose and Crown around 13.00 for lunch. 

Afterwards you can hop onto the M20 for a quick blast home or follow me and ride a country route including the A262 via Sissinghurst, Flishinghurst and Gouldhurst back to Godstone Pond. 

If you plan to attend this ride and wish to eat and/or drink at The Rose and Crown then as places are limited to 12 people you must either text me on 07 968 448 891 or email or so I can reserve a place for you. I will send you confirmation of your place. 

If you want to return home directly from Maidstone HD then you do not need to contact me.

C19 restrictions dictate that we must not exceed groups of 6 people. So please gather in socially distanced groups of 6 or fewer and keep 2m between groups. Once on the road we will ride as individuals using the usual drop off system. When we stop you should reform the same groups as before and not swap around.
