Previous Years Rating: 82.8% based on 7 reviews

Hopefully a move to July will see everyone out riding in sunny and dry conditions as the beauty of the Weald will really be shown the the weather is spot on . This year the first and last climb will both be timed for the Polka Dot Jersey prize and the £50 cycle shop voucher . All signage is event-specific and high quality , we back this up with a GPS download for your bike computer and if thats not enough we publish a turn-by-turn paper route guide - going off-course is not an option ! Come and enjoy a friendly and relaxed Sportive thats also not too pricey ... img

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 at the half-way point 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.
