The Annual Tour of the Marshes is always held in late November and is a one day ride normally starting in the Whitstable area before going off into the heartland of the area along very quiet roads. The ride is relatively easy as no one is flying at that time of the year, we also try and restrict numbers on the event to 30-34. After a short(ish) ride of no more than 30-32 miles we stop for a celebratory Christmas meal at the Grove Ferry Inn (link to the right).

The meal is always pre-booked in advance and once you have committed to go a menu will be sent to you to select from.

The majority of people on the ride normally stay the night at the Premier Inn (Whitstable) and we can normally negotiate a very good overnight rate of circa £12-£15, after getting back from the ride people have a quick shower etc and meet up in the bar. If you only wish to either go just on the ride or do not wish to stay overnight this is not a problem, just advise Mike when registering interest in the event.

As the ride is in November it is vital that you have lights on your bike for the ride back from the Grove Ferry Inn to the hotel if staying for the meal.

Directions to Premier Inn: From London A2 onto M2, then A299 and B2205 to Whitstable, the hotel is before 2nd roundabout. Next to the Long Reach Beefeater.
