Route Details

The Challenge is aimed at more experienced riders and features longer ascents. You will descend at Exedown and then follow the Pilgrim’s Way through half-timbered Ightham, Comp, historic Offham with its quintain post, and then an interesting climb of the North Downs from the Medway Gap. After a splendid lunch at Meopham we have discovered a route of more leafy ancient lanes and quiet villages through North Kent with views of the Thames Estuary and London. To anyone who is not used to riding in the North Downs, please note that this route is considered hilly by those more used to flatter terrain! See graph below to check how hilly it is. This is an excellent training ride for longer rides a bit later in the summer.

What an extremely well organised event! The marshals and volunteers were friendly and helpful, the refreshments were excellent and the route card was spot on. We will certainly be back next year. Please thank everyone that made it such a successful event and an enjoyable experience for all twelve of us.
