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 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.
We also have a Cycle and Tri-Gear Jumble in the hall next door - buy it - sell it! from 9am to 2pm, tables just a fiver or leave your stuff with our sellers on a commission basis.
