New Dover to Deal Cycle route opens 12th July

You and your bike are invited to the launch of the brand new Skylark Cycle Trail between Dover and Deal.

This welcome improvement was prompted by the sad death of local cyclist Daniel Squire. It has been funded by KCC from the local Highways budget of the county councillor for Dover North, Steve Manion - who earns our wholehearted thanks in making this happen.
More details at:

The new route is well-signed using quiet country lanes and avoids the hazards of the busy A258. It offers a good inland alternative to the coastal National Cycle Route 1 .

The launch is on Saturday 12th July 2014
at 11.30 for a photo-call at 12noon with local press and media
at The Old Lantern Inn, The Street, Martin, near Dover CT15 5JL

Meeting in the front garden, inside if wet. Pub will open by 11.30am, possibly earlier!

Hope to see you there - please reply if you can come.

After the photo, you can join a nice down-hill ride to Deal - enjoying the views and the sound of the skylarks over the cornfields (or ride on to somewhere more adventurous).

best wishes,
