|Event Records: Male 03:19:10, Female 03:55:07 (Some courses have altered over time)|
|Tour of the Weald 2020 date: yet to be confirmed.|
|More info: We have taken out two of the old climbs but replaced them with 3 new ones in a major re-write of the route - some new scenery to look at - old favourites like East Hall Hill and the polka-dot jersey timed climb will remain though !|
Now establishedfor 7 years as one of Mid-Kent's favourite Sportives - as everyone who has ridden with us before knows this is a quality route with DEDICATED TOTW signage on every turn and junction - not those silly flouro arrows which could have been there months ! We have a well stocked feed station in Biddenden at about 67.5km/41.9M and a rescue/back up vehicle just a phone call away. There is a riders medal for all finishers and hot/cold food from the catering stand back at HQ.
Note: The Onion-seller/Retro rally and Bike Jumble are not happening this year.
