    What sort of cycling we do

    We have easy cycle rides using trains from London to explore unusual places you never knew were there, rather than cycling in chain gangs or rushing through as much tarmac as possible.  

    Together we explore lost railways, cycle ferries, old forts, castles, marshes, canals, ancient churches, winding rivers and wide skies, ancient woods, village greens, old pubs, martello towers, windmills, follies, sea marks, sailing barges, light ships, gun emplacements and more.

    The Can-Can. The Canterbury Canter is a linear walk in 8 stages from Strood to Broadstairs tracing the route of St Augustine when he was sent to convert Kent to Christianity. You can join for one or all stages. A very tentative schedule is as follows:
