This 10.8 mile cycle route heads out around the back of Manor park and out, via Broadwater Farm, to the Wateringbury Road. From there, we take the North Pole Road, before heading back through the woods to East Malling Research, back up through West Malling and back to base.

This is possibly our most diverse route, offering everything from woodland paths to trunk roads and it also takes us quite a long way from home. Riders are reminded to carry plenty of drinking fluids, especially when it gets a bit warmer.


This cycle route is mostly roads with several short sections on A roads. There is also about ½ mile section of unmade path, which at best is a bit rough. In dry conditions, the off-road path will not present any problems for normal road bikes or hybrids with road tyres but it may be a little uncomfortable for race bikes.
