A day out on your doorstep in Kent
Posted by Marcus Van Der Gaag on 17 July 2023
If you live in Ashford, Maidstone or Tunbridge Wells, then you might like to know that we are within a 40-minute drive from you.
If you're coming via train, we are a 4-minute drive, 8-minute bike ride or 27-minute walk from Headcorn Rail Station.
If you're coming out to Kent from London, then you're here in an hour.
And when you get here, a fantastic day out is waiting for you!
We have the right e-bike for you, ready to hire (over 14s only).
Park your car or leave your cycle with us, switch to one of our e-bikes, let us give you set up and ready, then your day of exploring begins.
From our base at Headcorn Airfield, you can easily create some great routes - or take one of ours:
Head up to Whitstable, across to Ramsgate, Dover, Deal or Sandwich, or head south of the county to Hythe, New Romney or Dungeness.
The Cantii Way is a wonderful new route that can be explored - choose a section of it to fill a day, or stay a few to complete all 234m/145m of it.
Canterbury is the jewel of the East Kent crown, but there are so many other places to visit on the way or instead of, if you've already been, including Faversham's historic market town, beautiful Biddenden, haunted Pluckley, or make your way over to Leeds Castle, or the National Trust's Scotney Castle or Sissinghurst Gardens.
You're spoilt for choice in the Garden of England, but north of our Headcorn base is Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and to the south is the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Kent is peppered with beautiful countryside waiting for you to explore it!
Food & drink
You won't be cycling for long before you find a lovely country pub in Kent - and if your day out is centred around a great lunch, a superb setting or a stunning view, we can help plan your day and give you some ideas. We also have links with local pubs, so that if you stay there, we'll bring the e-bike to you so you can cycle off from there.
Brewery & vineyards
We have self-guided routes that take you to vineyards and breweries - the perfect day out to enjoy the fresh air and delicious drinks available on the way! We can book your in for tastings and lunch if you'd like us to.
We have a wonderful garden route, so hop on the e-bike and visit to your heart's content, the beautiful gardens - it's not called The Garden of England for nothing!
Friends & Family
Book our e-bikes to give your friends and family a unique experience!
Get out for a day with your teenager - we hire to over 14s, so ditch the screen (unless you are using it for your map!) and have a day to remember together!
