Sorry MrLeafeah but I’m posting this review to prevent anyone who is not experienced from taking this route. I took my Wife out on this ride to build her confidence but it was really not suitable.
This ride is not suitable for Novice or Nervous riders nor would I say it is suitable for Road Bikes but great fun for if you are a competent Mountain bikers.

The ride starts up a narrow alley with Nettles either side, this doesn’t stop as your taken through a country park trail (more nettles on a narrow trail) which has a lumpy gravel surface with dips and bumps and which are difficult to spot in the dappled light and cambers that can throw you off your bike.
After around 6 miles of this you do get a respite with lovely countryside for about a mile but then your taken on busy main roads in the middle of Canterbury with lots of busy roundabouts.
The Grove Ferry is a very welcomed break, I really recommend stopping here for the food and the settings, really lovely and the riding from this point onwards is fine for both novices and experienced riders, but unfortunately this doesn’t make up for the difficult first ¾’s of the ride.
If you can handle a road bike on difficult surfaces then its fine, great for experienced mountain bikers but not a ride to introduce or take along a novice.
Cycle-route.com need to introduce more information like this for their rides.
