Rating: Rate this Event Now

The long route is now; From new H.Q. at Horton Kirby, Eynsford, Halsted, Sundridge, Ide Hill, 4 Elms, Edenbridge, Edenbridge, Hever, Mark Beech, Chiddingstone Hoath, Fordcombe, poundsbridge, Speldhurst, Leigh, Hildenborough, Underriver ( climb Carters) Seal, Otford, Farningham and Horton Kirby. The short route diverts at Ide Hill village and goes across the ridge and rejoins the long route soon after the top of Carters Hill. The website gives the total climbing of each of the routes.The roads are fairly quite with a small amount of single track road. Should you need refreshments there is a cafe at the garden centre on your right as you approach 4 Elms and there is also Hilden Golf Club cafe on your right as you turn off the Leigh Tonbridge Road towards Hilden Station.The climbs detailed on do not do the course justice in that there are plenty of short sharp climbs - 17% into Spelhurst - that don't qualify for a climb category. The element of the long route from Mark Beech through to the final turn to Leigh will be signed which will be useful for those without SATNAV. As you will see from the website there is a download for Gramin users. We aim to develop the ride into a Sportive so will be glad of feedback.
