11 am | Meet at Margate station where you will be introduced to your fellow adventurers before taking a leisurely cycle ride down the gorgeous Viking Coastal Path. A flat and relaxing coastline route suitable for riders of all abilities.

Early Afternoon | We’ll pass St Mildred's Bay, a peaceful beach haven, before riding over the cliff tops taking in the stunning sea vistas. Then through a lush coastal nature reserve to Reculver, where we’ll explore Roman and medieval ruins.  Just before Whitstable we’ll pass trough pretty Tankertonwith it’s  ​colourful beach hut. Shortly after we’ll explore Hern Bay, a quaint Victorian seaside town for lunch. On the pier, there’s a great selection of food; Italian, Thai or classic fish & Chips.


Late Afternoon | Whitstable is a charming fishing town with plenty of character around every corner. We’ll wonder the lovely seashore, fishing harbour, and quaint cobblestone streets. Maybe try some fresh Oysters, some fine fish & chips, the best ice cream in Whitstable, a seaside tiple, or all four!
