2016: August 19 - FNRttC Whitstable

Booking is now open for the Friday Night Ride to Whitstable on 19th August.

This is a wonderful ride following the Thames from Tower Bridge to the delightful seaside town of Whitstable, passing iconic sites such as the Cutty Sark in Greenwich, The Royal Arsenal in Woolwich, The Historic Dockyard in Chatham, where HMS Victory was built and the North Kent marshes, one of the most important natural wetlands in northern Europe.

After the success of moving the start point to Tower Bridge for our April ride, we are going to repeat this and the meeting will be outside the entrance to Potters Fields on Tooley Street, near Tower Bridge. 

There will be a half-way refreshment stop at Strood, where rolls, hot drinks and home made cakes will be available. We will then ride through the dawn to finish at the Waterfront café to the East of Whitstable, where riders will be able to have a well deserved cooked breakfast and even a beer or two if that takes their fancy.

To take part in the ride, you will need to register here: Whitstable Ride Registration

The ride will start at midnight, but please aim to arrive by 11.40pm so you can be checked in and we can have a safety brief.

This is a relatively flat ride of about 70 miles, with just a few steep hills to get you out of the saddle.
