Our first route is a hidden gem that takes in the B2042 from Sevenoaks to Edenbridge and was nominated by Rob Wright

“A narrow, twisting route lined with thick rows of trees, this really is like the Ring in miniature!”  

Length

10.7 miles

Love it because

Located in a picturesque, secluded setting, it’s the perfect place to let your bike off its leash a little without the bother of too much traffic.

Take a picture at

Stop off at Ide Hill for a picture. Overlooking the road you have just climbed up, it can offer fantastic views.   

Stop for a cuppa at

Try the Woodman pub, just outside Ide Hill. the perfect place for a for hot drink, not something stronger!

Watch out for

Look out for damp patches under the trees, which are starved of sunlight after it has rained. 

Best bike for the job

A winding road like this needs either a super-naked or supermoto.
