|The A2 from Bluewater to Strood is a 3/4 lane aside dual-carriageway. So you can't really take that route. I think there may be a path for pedestrians/cyclists that runs parallel, but it's noisy, dirty and you're likely to get a puncture.|
A much nicer route is the A226 through Greenhithe, Gravesend, Chalk, Higham to Strood (albeit hilly in parts), then back on the A2. The same thing probably happens at Faversham as well, but I wouldn't know what to do there.

|I just completed the Amiens to Paris section (approx 9hr, carrying weight approx 10kg) of this route and found it very tolerable, passing some pretty rural areas of Northern France. |
The route is direct and very simple as it follows numbered national routes (ie. one lane each way). This simplicity is traded for moderate to low car traffic (no trucks or buses all day), which disappears to zero when on smaller roads (stating the obvious here I think).
Repeating the trip I might better plan village to village, however as a scenic A (London) to B (Paris) this is still enjoyable.
