You can go over the M2 bridge via the cyclepath on the side from either Wouldham/Burham Rd or Nashenden Farm Lane depending on which way you have come and from there you can go up into Cobham woods and then onto Shorne.

Alternatively you can go across a field from the petrol station on BBH by the White Horse Stone trail.  This leads you to Pratling Street and Forstal Road.  from there you can go via Aylesford then Leybourne Lakes, round through Snodland and the back of Halling/Cuxton.

There is some fantastic riding to be had around that area, nice swoopy single track, some long climbs and good fun down hill blasts.  Its generally where i come to play  8)

I have a route from Lordswood that provides a big loop through Cobham Woods & out into Shorne Country Park that covers all sorts of terrain.  When I finished mapping it I'll let you know.  I've ridden it previously with someone who knew it well & I'm recreating it so I can use it for training.
In fact I'll be looking for company at least the first time I go out & try it.
Where are you based?

If you post up in the Blue Bell Hill wednesday thread someone might have a spare light for one of the evenings so you can come along and have a go...

Any suggestions for purchasing some lights.

Balance between good light and not costing 3 figures as seems to be lots out there.

Cheers

Its worth borrowing a light if you can just to make sure you get on with night riding. Once youve decided you love it i recommend the Hope Vision 2. Lagginbehind can assist you in getting one at a good price.
If you cant stretch to a Hope BMJBOY can advise on the cheaper torch solutions I think.
