Ride Information

START/FINISH: Wye station, Bridge Street TN25 5EB, 51.186142, 0.930086

DISTANCE: 32.4 miles/52.2km

ASCENT: 3008ft/917m


TERRAIN: Chalky bridle paths and byways, woodland trails and quiet country lanes, with some busier roads towards Faversham. Climbs are occasional but testing.

NAVIGATION: Fairly easy. The bridleways along the North Downs Way are well signposted. Beyond Graveney, as the
bridleway rises to crest the hill near Oversland, it is easy to miss a partially obscured sign which points you through a residential garden onto saturated pasture with dense woodland beyond. OS Landranger 179 is helpful.
