We booked online before arrival. our bikes were really good. we were provided with maps, locks and helmets. we were a bit apprehensive about the route as we hadn’t done a bike ride for some time. however, we needn’t of worried. we went from whitstable to reculver in approximately 1.1/2 hours. it was a brilliant route along the promenade with only a couple of hilly parts at the end (we walked these). this ride literally made my weekend- I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Herne bay was a lovely pitstop for an ice cream and a walk up the pier. I cannot recommend this highly enough I would happily go back to whitstable every week just to do this ride.
