|This is a relatively flat, 30 mile road route, designed specifically to stay off the main roads.
Starting at the Sportsman Cafe, Wincheap Rd, Canterbury, the route heads towards Ashford on the back roads, takes a half way stop at the Tickled Trout in Wye, before heading back to finish at the Sportsman.

|lovely scenery,beautiful flowers and wildlife, mostly quiet roads except for The Downs. Wye, very nice for a stop, with loos, park with benches and coffee shop, however not my definition of 'relatively flat'. We are 'pleasure cyclists' and average fitness, but we both had to get off and walk in places!|
Took us 4hrs, which did not include stop for lunch.
Parked in Wincheap industrial estate carpark - 80p for 5hrs- ideal if have bike trailer.
Recommended lovely route, but very uppy downy!

|I'm totally unfit and haven't cycled in years but just got back from this cycle route in under 3 hours. Some of the most beautiful scenery in this part of Kent taking you past the Devil's Kneading Trough and Wye Nature Reserve.|
A really beautiful cycle ride that lets you appreciate the true beauty of Kent.
It is fairly challenging in places - there are a couple of endless hills but you are rewarded with beautiful hills and a gentle glide to the bottom of the next Valley. Well worth it!
