We do loads of rides around Kent and Sussex. Almost weekly! Usually meeting not too far from you but generally a good 30min ride to the start point.

Search Facebook for London motorcycle riders club then follow the link in the description to join up if you're interested in regular group meets...

Quite a few members from here too, you'll probably bump into hoggs, soll, Dav3y and some others at some stage...

I'll be out on the bike soon too - hopefully,
A mate of mine who lives on my street is buying a bike this weekend so I'll drag him along too.

Late to the party but I'm just outside Maidstone myself if there are still rides going?

Google says the reca cafe is permanently closed? Is this the case?

Long gone. They closed the café last year due to lack of business.
