So no one wants to help-why does this have to be such hard work?

Hi Kirk,
I would be happy to help on the day, dependant on the date. Because of the distances involved I can't help with the preparation but would encourage you to keep up your efforts. :gr8:

Welcome to the world of event planning! :D

The biggest problem is we don't have many members in Kent - certainly not active ones, so local advice might be hard to come by.

From what I understand there's not a lot in Kent anyway. Partially why we've never had an event there.

Your best bet would be to base it on the routes published in a mag as Ratrace suggested. Other than that it's down to checking with the council for available routes that are open and then reccying them to see what they are like.

As John says, don't give up. If you can get a decent route together I'm sure there will be loads of peeps that will want to go along.

Nick :gr8:

this will help

http://www.kent.gov.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0008/6488/PROW-traffic-regulation-orders.pdf

All details are correct at the date of production: 23rd July 2012.


its a bit out of date by a call to KCC will confim if the document is ok

and they are great for downloading and printing out

there are lanes in Kent which have a gate and a code issue to the permit hold but i just leave them alone as they are watch by the council and the police

The lro magazine route starts near Leeds castle and finishes near dungeness on the coast and only covers 10.5 miles of green laning over 11 lanes, so it's a lot of road miles and a long day for very little green laning


i'm so skint i cant even pay attention

How about making a weekend of it...?

Do the LRO route in reverse, then from Leeds Castle to the tunnel/ferry, and we have got 10 hours of lanes that start just outside Calais.
Then fill up with cheap diesel (85p per litre) cheap wine and beer and head home when everyone's happy

i have spoke to my kent rep [glass] and he says that there are loads of lanes but a lot are tro through the winter plus permits are a reqired for a few [readilly available from kent cc] he assures me there are enough for a day even in winter
i am starting to put a route together as soon as i get an e mail back from him
rat race has allready expressed an interest so with the four from this end that would be enough

i assume we have members in kent/sussex?
if so i would like to tap into that local knowledge

between all these sources including trailwise we should have a good day out

There is a lot of lanes in Kent

Just be warned they are very scratchy

And yes need a permit. Gates with padlocks.
To be honest not that good.

If you get a route together that has been recy'd and interest is high I would be OK to lead a second group. Scratchy is OK for me, driving them keeps them open. :yes:
