Saturday Training Ride – A Respectful Journey!

November 5, 2014

This weekend is Remembrance weekend when people of  many countries, faiths and beliefs remember the fallen who gave their lives in the line of duty for their country.
During  WW2 and the Battle of Britain,  Kent was in the forefront of the defence of our Nation and subsequently a number of pilots lost their lives on “our patch”.  
Our Saturday training ride passes very closely to two crash sites (Court Farm, Chelsfield and Sparepenny Lane, Farningham) where pilots have memorials dedicated to them by the Battle of Britain Museum in Shoreham.
 
If you would like to pay your respects to these brave men please join us as we ride at a comfortable pace on our usual route, stopping at the sites mentioned above and also a tea stop at the museum in Shoreham High Street.
The ride will be about 30 miles all told from our usual meeting point at Birchwood Road.
We aim to leave there at 09:15 so please be prompt.
