Viking Trail


Cycling day out at the seaside

Pre booked (on let's Ride) SPOKES Members join Peter at approx. 9:30 am

A Spokes day out at the seaside. We take a train to Euston, ride to St Pancras International, then Train to Ramsgate (using group saver tickets).  Ride the Viking Trail, a lovely, coastal and country Lane route. Lunch break at Minnis Bay and evening meal at Ramsgate Wetherspoon’s.   The ride is on well surfaced shared use paths and quiet roads. Return by train etc. to arrive back in Herts. about 9.30 pm.            

A sociable day, we will go at the pace of the slowest.  1200’ of climbing but not challenging. We may have stairs to negotiate with bikes if station lifts are out of order. Initially, a Members only ride but, on 8 June, if not fully booked it will be opened to non-Members.  Last year the ride filled up very quickly so early booking is advised.

The ride numbers limit is 12, if more than 6 book we will travel down in two groups to avoid being refused using the same train. I will seek a volunteer to guide a group on the journey down, including the short back street ride from Euston to St, Pancras, we will meet up at Ramsgate Station to spend the day together. Coming back, we will try to travel together.
