Romford to Rochester Kent 1st February 2010

This is my first longish bike ride for a while and a first on my new Fuji Newest 1.0 road bike.
I set off on Monday 1st Feb 2010 from Romford and headed off towards Rainham and onto Tilbury via Grays etc.
Once in Tilbury I paid my £3 fee for the Tilbury to Gravesend ferry and boarded the boat.

Once I disembarked at Gravesend I made my way to Rochester via Higham, Strood on the A226 etc...

I stopped off at the Rochester Vistor centre and took a few photos, they had a sign digital sign outside with a countdown to the 2012 Olympics. I then visted the Rochester Castle and Cathedral before making my way to Strood Railway station as I needed to be back home quickish.

I paid £8.40 for a ticket to Woolwich Arsenal, once there I made my way back home via the Woolwich Ferry to North Woolwich, onto Beckton,East Ham,Barking and onwards to Romford. Total riding mileage 45 miles.
Good ride even though it was cold :)
