|An 8AM start on a Sunday morning is bad enough, let alone when we lose an extra hour with the change to Summer Time!
After a very chilly start the route the day quickly improved, soon with glorious spring sunshine and the temperature reaching a very pleasant 18 degrees. This year's route was very different in character - rather more road than usual early on but also a steady supply of hills to provide a balance. The area around Ide Hill in particular was challenging, as was the navigating around Chartwell. Still, who wants to do a 30 mile event when you can slip in an extra mile or so??
Thanks go to the friendly faces at the venue and at the various checkpoints. As ever, the Kent group catered well for us and greatly helped make it an enjoyable day's challenge.
