1. Route following lanes and less busy roads from Ashford to the sea. Alternative to route 11 - which is longer. Mostly downhill too untill it gets flat. The only iffy bit is the short section on old Ashford to Ham street road - beware speeding drivers.
Landmarks/Sites to see?
Bilsington on the edge of the Marsh has a cricket pitch below an obilisk to a land agent - yes really. On the Marsh the windfarm and nuclear power station are visible from Bilsington - at old Romney, St Clements is worth a look, impressive church in Lydd, which also has a small toen museum. Onward, there is the RSPB reserve and then the old lighthouse and light railway at Dungeness (the latter's website says it can take bikes).
