Fantastic route, I´m very glad I came across it - definitely one I´ll be doing more than once! \r\n\r\nI did it on a Sunday and also stopped off at The Playden Oasts Inn (TN31 7UL) for a fantastic roast towards the end of the route!
Keep your wits about you when going along 7 mile lane, its a route a lot of lorries use
We ran the route early this morning and we would definitely do it again.
We didn't meet the normal hordes on route to Rye; extremely light traffic. The only issue was several of the corners on the B2163 contained large deposits of gravel in the centre and edges of the road.
Truly a fun route. This is what Brit-bikes are made for! Lots of cozy towns to pass through. Lots of narrow country lanes to zoom along.
There was a minor diversion the day I did this, but that doesnt matter as there are lots of fun in the area. Also there was a sportscar-club out that Sunday morning. All six of them drove like posessed, passing all other traffic (with me trailing along for the fun).

A nice Sunday morning ride and when you get to Rye pop down to Camber Sands for a cup of tea and get ready for zapping across Romney Marshes. Or go for a ride on the Romney marshe and Dymchurch miniture railway.
Nice, shaded country lane. So shaded, in fact, that the photo is a bit blurry.
