Since I was young I was always taken to Clowes Wood, we would take our family dogs down whilst our parents would walk we would often be allowed take our bikes.
Fast forward a few years and I now often bring my children here.
It’s a beautiful woods at all times of the year, with good clear paths.
This weekend just gone we took our bikes for my first proper bike ride since I had an accident whilst I was on a charity bike ride earlier this year. I was nervous I’m not going to lie, it’s been 12 weeks and I still have pain and have to sleep in an unusual position at night. So going through these familiar woodlands was a good place to start back at something I love so much.
The woods have the ‘crab and winkle way’ running through them. This means if you park at the woods you can choose to either ride into Canterbury or into Whitstable. We personally prefer going to Whitstable it’s a really wonderful seaside town.
