The Heron Trail16 miles, circular

With its literary connections - Charles Dickens wrote Great Expectations and A Tale of Two Cities here - rich maritime heritage and wide variety of bird life, there is something for everyone on a visit to the Heron Trail on the Hoo Peninsula.The Heron Trail, a circular, 18-mile route on theHooPeninsula, is bounded by two rivers – the Medway to the south andThamesto the north. The trail provides a combination of rural and maritime interests. The longer Coast to Cathedral route is a 50-mile circular ride linkingDover, Folkestone andCanterbury. Ride along bridleways and leafy lanes and over rolling hills through country villages and hamlets. It is great for day rides or a cycle holiday. The route is best approached anti-clockwise because the short, steep climb out ofDoveris easier than the longer climb out of Folkestone. Download

 

 

 

Ashford to Tunbridge Wells42 miles

Ashford to tunbridge wellsThe42-mile route from Ashford to Tunbridge Wells runs on country lanes through the High Weald, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is one of the best way to take inKent’sGardenofEnglandscenery. This ride is not recommended for novices and anybody who thinksKentis flat might reconsider after trying this. However there are a series of shorter rides that explore the Weald in more manageable bursts. For those who want to take on the full route, dedicated cycle lanes run alongside main roads at both Ashford and Tunbridge Wells. The route between Tonbridge Castle and Penshurst Place is almost entirely traffic-free and runs from the heart of Tonbridge alongside the River Medway, out into the countryside as far as the buildings of Penshurst Place five miles to the west.There is only one significant climb - between the bridge over the River Medway and Well Place Farm - and it is rewarded with views of the surrounding countryside.
