I may be proved completely wrong, but I think this one will fill. I'm going to have a chat with Kieron and see if we can move to the buffet system (albeit with a more traditional content) that proved such a success at Planet Sweet, and, in my estimation, will allow us to up the numbers a little.

So, for those of you who haven't done the Whitstable ride, here's the skinny....it's about 72 miles, and quite a bit tougher than Brighton. There's some decent ups and downs going in to Gravesend, and the route really doesn't settle in the second half between Rochester and Faversham. The consolation is that the ride has a bit of drama, some splendid views and goes through some pretty villages and towns. The last eight miles across the Graveney Marshes can, if the mist lies on the flat ground, be breathtaking

If you want to go on this one, Stu, you have to agree to listen to a lengthy safety talk from Lee on the subject of Descending at Speed. :whistle:

As I'm sure he'll testify, he was talking about going waaaay faster than me at the Reigate regroup. I'm generally good at descending at speed, it's sudden massive deacceleration that causes me problems

I'm finding hard to type this as I'm suffering from my first 120 miles yesterday, and the thought of getting back on my bike is the last thing I really want to be thinking about! But yes please Simon.

Simon,

Please count me in. Can I also bring a +1 called Amanda G?

Still on high after a great trip to Dunwich last night!
