|My own version of this route makes it into a 6 /10. |
At Appledore, head to Rye via Stone, Wittersham and Iden: and, at Hythe - if travelling anti - clockwise, take the Old London road and a BOAT to reach Lymphe and follow to road to Ruckinge. These routes add some steep climbs to the route.
Note also that it is possible to cycle along the sea wall from Greatstone to the redoubt, near Hythe.
Also - on this route consider the prevailing SW wind when you choose your launch point.

|Presuming you are starting at Hamstreet, take the gently hilly B2067 to Kenardington and turn left onto Appledore Road. Continue straight ahead towards Stone and bear left in Stone at the Crown Inn. There is a steep climb to Stone Chruch. Turn left and descend to the canal road. Turn right and follow this all the way to Rye.|
National cycle route 2 can be followed all the way to Hythe. This includes an off-road section to Camber and Lydd and then completely flat lanes and some of the canal towpath to Hythe.
Once in Hythe, turn left up the long hill on London Road and bear left onto the lane at the top of the hill. This becomes the hilly B2067 via Lympne, Bilsington and Ruckinge to Hamstreet.
A generally scenic route a one long flat middle section. For more details of rides from Hamstreet visit www.hamstreet.info and click on the cyling link
