Cy­clists ride to front­line

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Wheely Wet For Big Bike Race -

Sixty cy­clists stopped off in Boughton Aluph on Mon­day of last week to take a break from their 375-mile Wheels on the Western Front bike chal­lenge.

The five-day cy­cle ride was held in aid of ABF (Army Benev­o­lent Fund) The Soldiers’ Char­ity and marked the cen­te­nary of the out­break of the First World War.

The route took the team from Lon­don, through Kent, across the Chan­nel to Calais, where they fol­lowed the Great War front­line all the way to Com­piegne, near Paris, where the Armistice was fi­nally signed in 1918.
