Three Weeks To Go!

Head to the Kent coast for a cracking Easter cycling event!

Start the Easter Bank Holiday off with the Good Friday Sportive.  Take on one of the three distances on offer that take in the glorious Kent countryside.  With easy access from the M20, Folkestone Rugby Club sits on top of the North Downs and offers ample parking along with excellent facilities.

The choice of routes take in quiet lanes, undulating terrain and typical Kentish scenery as they meander through countryside and quaint villages.  The Maxi and Midi routes take in the Cinque port of Sandwich features early on along with the Roman fort at Richborough.

All three routes feature the climb of the Devil's Kneading Trough which offers up far reaching views across the Kent Weald before a long descent into the village of Wye.  The long slog up White Hill through the woods will sap the legs before the village of Challock, then it's a gentle descent into Charing.  The village of Pluckley is reputed to be the most haunted in England and it's worth moving quickly through here so that you don't get spooked!

Heading south towards Appledore and Newchurch the terrain flattens out across Romney Marsh in the run in towards the finish at Folkestone.  After a quick jaunt through the town it's onwards and upwards to tackle Blackhouse Hill.  Sign up for for a great Easter bank holiday challenge and take part in the Good Friday Sportive.
