Thanks Guys, grey and retreating, hair that is! Did a ride over to Kent 2 weeks ago, Faversham. Gawd, been in the sticks too long what a culture shock with the traffic. Don't mention the M25 parking stream, had to paddle a filter most of the way to the M20. Welcome back to fresh air and green fields of sunny, slow, Devon.

I do that run a few times a year as my Mum lives over in Maidstone.
I hate that run... usually do it mid week and travel home in the evening.. the later the better... M25 is POS.
Only done it once on a bike to get to the chunnel and encountered similar traffic to what you described.
