Map My Tracks Festive ride 2016

Return to latest news

During the festive break ten riders joined us to ride from London to Canterbury.

Our ride started with a train journey from Map My Tracks’ home town of Canterbury to London and from there we rode the 73 miles back to Canterbury.

Our ride started out of Stratford and soon picked up the country lanes south of London near Otford. Having started the ride in the fog it soon cleared to sunshine and a maximum temperature of 7 degrees Celsius.

After a coffee and cake stop at Maidstone we started on the home leg keeping to the Pilgrims Way up to the point that we hit black ice and three of us fell like skittles. That made the decision to deviate from our route a lot simpler and we headed for the A20 through Lenham and Charing. After that it was a straight run into Canterbury after the sun had set. Having started the ride at 10:30 we arrived in Canterbury at 17:00 ready for some well earned refreshments.

Thanks to all the riders that joined in on the Map My Tracks Festive Ride 2016 - @ash1, @kj, @paulkemp, @rachelcornish, @zoe_smith, @jonwilliamson, Dave, Rod, Paul and @Nick.
