A short ride on our own bikes to help establish pace for the big ride. Richard and I both ride at a similar pace, Richard is starting to build up his distance capability. We rode in drizzle up Boughton Lane to Heath Road then down Hunton Hill to Yalding. Time for coffee and cake at Kenward cafe. Then back to Maidstone via East Farleigh, Tovil and Bockingford. Tea Saucer Hill at about 15% is a challenge but hopefully it will get easier with more training. This hill is a good one to assess progress. My total mileage was 15.64 miles in 1hr 20.38 av speed 11.6. A good start to progress from.
