Are you aware that the wonderful cycling routes around Twineham and Wineham (including the lovely Royal Oak pub) are under great threat? A London property company called Mayfield Market Towns is targeting the area (against the wishes of local councils, local people and local land owners) for a 10,000 home new town. The scheme is only getting traction due to the fact that two of its Directors are Peers and one is a billionaire who has also wanted to build his own town.
These people claim this area is low grade farmland and provides no amenity value – yet hundreds of cyclists, horse riders and ramblers use it constantly.
We are campaigning hard against it (lambs.org.uk and Facebook: Mayfield Protest). Would it be possible for you to warn other cyclists of what is happening? We could really do with your support.
Very many thanks,

I don’t know all the arguments for and against the development. But it is lovely countryside near the Royal Oak so it would be a real shame if that were to disappear.

I’m not sure I want other contributions to this site but if you want to submit a proposal, I’ll read and consider it.

Just started cycling (got a MTB) to get fit and have found your site. I’m definitely going to be trying a couple of your routes and bet I could take your crown for Captain Slow.
I’ll let you know how I get on.
Thanks for sharing your discoveries.

Hi Clive , I’m looking to cycle from Whitstable to Ramsgate, I enjoy cycling but only on a small scale not part of a club or anything. However I seen that you done part of this route and looking to see what the coastal path is like from Whitstable to ramsgate ?
Your feedback will be much appreciated. Most of the cycle routes are saying I have to go on road and mis out some of the coastal path.

We came inland slightly near Whitstable and Herne Bay but otherwise we followed most of the Viking Coastal Trail. We found it OK for cycling and have ridden it a couple of times, once in each direction. It can be windy though!
If you have not seen my posts, here’s the Sandwich to Whitstable ride (opposite direction to you). And the Whitstable to Margate direction.

i will taking a long ride in June and need a GPS to guide me along the route. and i havent got a clue when it comes to GPS computers.
i have the gpx file for the route already.
i dont want to spend a fortune as not interest in metrics, i just need a unit to help me make it through the journey.
ill be riding the king Alfreds cycle route.
do you think this unit will be up for the job?

Hi Jon. If you want guiding along a route, you will need a GPS unit with mapping. The Garmin Edge 530 is a possible candidate for that, https://amzn.to/3Gp2QH1. Not sure if that one has route directions but the higher priced Garmin Edge 830 will have those.
