I lived in Kent for 14 years. In Aylesham. The bright spot was the regular appearance of confused travellers on the station platform wondering why they weren't in Norfolk.

Seriously.

Oh, and the riding around East Kent is a delight.

If it helps anyone I've just used the bike taxi from Essex to Kent.
I approached the Essex control via West Thurrock village rather than the M25 cycle path - you go up the private looking gated road just west of the Ibis hotel.
It was 2050 when I picked up the phone so I wasn't sure if they'd come out but the nice lady said yes and I was picked up about 15 mins later by a cheerful driver. It looks like the vehicle is based on the Kent side so if you arrived there you might get picked up straight away at quiet times.
