    People of Kent

    Do you recognise yourself from this description? The most civilised of all these nations are they who inhabit Kent, which is entirely a maritime district, nor do they differ much from the Gallic customs. Most of the inland inhabitants do not sow corn, but live on milk and flesh...

    Route planning in Kent

    Kent has plenty of great cycling. Lots of hills, mainly of the short & sharp kind, and plenty of flatlands. I just came across a useful online route planning resource. Although the mapping may be slightly out of date. The first ever OS map was “An Entirely New & Accurate Survey Of The...

    Cyclists in Kent, please help me with village shop and cafe feedback

    I haven't posted for a long time, partly because I've not been able to cycle through injury. However, I am back in the saddle, but also saddled with an interesting task - our village shop closed rather suddenly, and we are researching the idea of a community shop and cafe to replace it. We are...

    recommend me some trails in SE Kent

    So a few of us are doing some regular off road rides and I'm looking for suggestions of places to go. Not official trail centres as we know about those. I know of Barham and Perry wood in the Canterbury area. Ideally somewhere we will not be frowned upon for riding.
