Ride to Upnor

Saturday March 21, 2009

I don’t know what’s happening, whether it’s Global Warming or not, but it was another nice day here in Rochester.  So out came the Trek and off I cycled.

Today’s destination was the small town of Upnor along the River Medway towards the sea.  Never been there before despite it being only a couple of miles away.  There’s a castle there (Upnor Castle) but I didn’t see much of it, only a section of it down on the beach.

On the way home, I stopped at Rochester Castle (a favourite spot of mine) for a bottle of Coke and an ice cream – a great end to the ride.

The total trip was 11.36 miles.

A couple of photos below but more on my Flickr pages.
