Routes

Motorcycle taking corner at high speed.

RIDE OUT # 1 – THE KENT COUNTRYSIDE LOOP

A perfect Sunday afternoon ride out with friends.

Meet at the junction of the A28 and A274 at London Beach just East of Tenterden.

From there, head into Tenterden on the A28 and take the last left turn at the West end of town, the B2082 – a lively little road that ducks and dives a lot between hedges and is used regularly by horse riders.

Follow the road all the way down to Rye.

In Rye you’ll typically find bikers parked in the Quayside car park – a great place to stop, rest and chat.

From there, take the A259 to Hastings. If you want a slow detour take the coast road down to Winchelsea Beach and along.

In Hastings, the old fishing huts are a great place to stop.

From there head North on the main road through town, pick up the A28 which journeys right back to Tenterden and complete this great loop of the Kentish and East Sussex countryside.

RIDE OUT # 2 – THE COASTAL PATH

An exhilarating Hastings to Hythe via Camber route.

Kick off in central Hastings and take the A21 out of town. Meet the A28 after about five miles.

Take in the views via the B2089, B2080 and A259.

At Rye, try the Woolpack Pub, a great biker friendly stop.

Rather than stay on the A259, branch right to Camber and follow the signs to Lydd. The route takes you around the back of Lydd Army Ranges – lovely sweeping bends where you can re-join the main road.

Stay on the A259 al the way Hythe via some great open sea roads at St. Mary’s Bay.

COVID-19 Notice

Whilst the temptation to wheel out the bike and take to the road is great, especially considering to fine weather we are experiencing at the moment, please take time to consider the implications:

  • Going for a motorcycle ride is not essential use
  • Riding in groups does not reflect a responsible approach to the current situation and will only enforce the negative image of bikers that non bikers hold
  • At some point you will have to stop and if you are in a group you will no longer be social distancing
  • You are putting yourself and others at risk. If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in a crash the extra unnecessary burden you will put on the already over stretched NHS staff will be YOUR FAULT because your ride was not essential
  1. STAY AT HOME
  2. PROTECT THE NHS
  3. SAVE LIVES
