|More info: Now established for many 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 after Biddenden at about 62k on the Long course and a rescue/back up vehicle just a phone call away. A GPX File of the route for your compatible cycle computer or perhaps phone app can be found here. There is a riders medal for all finishers and hot/cold food is available from the catering stand back at HQ.|
Shorter distance 70k(43miles) event from 2019. For the Short version of this long-established event, we've bypassed the climbs at East Hall Hill and Old Barn Lane but left in Pixot Hill for a challenge but without the KOM trophy on the Short event. A GPX File of the route for your compatible cycle computer or perhaps phone app can be found here, and the MapMyFitness map of the course is here.
The well-stocked feed station after Biddenden is at about 58km on the Short route. There is a rider''s medal for all finishers and hot/cold food is also available from the catering stand back at HQ.
