lunch IN Hern Bay
Taking in several stunning bays and seaside towns, coastal nature reserves, Roman ruins, a lunch stop at a Victorian seaside resort, post-ride pints, and culinary delights in Whitstable.
Along the way, there will be frequent stops where Colin will share stories about the history, culture, and landscape, including little known local secrets!
"Such a good way to spend the day. Had no idea the cycle from Margate to Whitstable was so beautiful, with sea views the entire way. Plenty of stops for tea, lunch, photo ops and 🍻 with a fun bunch of people 😊 Thanks Colin for a perfectly planned trip and for sharing lots of fun local facts and stories. Looking forward to the next one!"
