Premium Member johan Posted March 20, 2016 Premium Member Share Posted March 20, 2016 Living in the Garden of England has it's advantages; an easy commute into Canary Wharf on the eastern side of London, a 35 minute ride to the Chunnel combined with rural scenery. And yes, the Kent Downs is beautiful. But the biggest draw back is that it is one of the most densely populated counties and the roads are always busy. This morning I went for a ride, to scrub my new PR4 tyres. Unfortunately, every time I got to a twisty section of road or even a roundabout I had either and HGV or a effing horse box in front of me, with oncoming traffic. Smaller B roads can be quieter but they are narrow and undulating with limited vision ahead, so while still satisfying they are not fast and won't challenge your tyres. I guess the style of riding is to slow down, relax and enjoy the scenery. Does anyone have a favourite route in Kent or East Sussex? I usually explore around Biddenden, Tenterdon etc. This morning I stayed close to home; Crouch, Plaxtol, Shipbourne, Ightham and so on.
