Day 46 : Battlesbridge to Whitstable (103.1 miles)

Day 46 complete – 103.1 miles, 1160m climbing. Matt left Battlesbridge at 8.45 and cycled to Ashingdon, Westcliff-on-Sea, South Benfleet, Dunton Wayletts, Upminster …

then down to Woolwich where he caught the ferry across the Thames which took about 10 mins and was free.

He then cycled along the Thames path to Erith, through Dartford, past Gravesend and down to Rochester, through Chatham, Upchurch, Howt Green, Bapchild, Faversham, past Graveney, Seasalter and on to Primrose Cottage campsite at Whitstable.

Took about 7 hrs today as the traffic was really bad and the road surfaces awful in places but it was dry with cloud and some sun and not too windy.

Steve and I drove along the A130, A13, M25 over the Queen Elizabeth bridge at Dartford then joined the M2, A2 and A299 arriving nice and early today.
