2011-08-07 - Herne Bay



Sunday the 7th of August, just over 100kms of easy rolling to Herne Bay on the Kent Coast - Fish and Chips, train back.

Have tried to keep the route as short as possible and avoid the majority of hills down there.
Crossing the Medway on the M2 footpath and riding close to the water for some good views.

9.00 AM Greenwich Park.

Route:

The medway path alongside the M2 is awesome. You can fly along it as it's perfectly flat too. The medway on the left, and this absurd 8 lane highway cutting through an otherwise pristine bay. That is all...

I actually can't wait for this, have never been down that way before.

Herne Bay is practically a straight line down from Clacton-on-Sea across the North Sea and has the same flattish profile but less distance as that ride.

Most of the meters climbed are done in two areas, Shooters Hill after Blackheath and between Betsham and Cuxton.

After that it is just cruising.

just took a look at the map. you pretty much exactly followed the route I take. only two things of note is

1. Pier road in gillingham from mile 30-32.5 is a busy (most of the time) dual carriageway. probably ok in a big group of 40 people but personally I would cut up brompton road and through the gillingham back streets but then I know the area and its probably easier to try and keep it simple with such a big group.

2. from mile marker approx 59-60 the left hand fork which appears to go down to a dead end off the b2205 (Marine crescent) if you go down there, from there on down, there is a sea path pretty much all the way down to herne bay. might cut a little off the distance and is definately a bit prettier. only problem is the path is that concrete that your wheels goes thunk over every 10 feet as its in sections. and the path is probably comfortably for 4 cyclists wide but with people with dogs using it it might get a bit crowded...ill leave it up to you

ill ride your route down (from mine) with my different sections sometime early june and upload the route with pics of the sea path e.t.c
