Route Description

The Classic requires some training if you don’t normally ride a bike. Start by riding north through Longfield Hill and Nurstead with views across the Thames Estuary. After riding through the Dickensian village of Cobham you will enjoy a curving descent before taking a long but not too demanding climb back past Luddesdown to the lunch stop at Meopham. Afterwards, cycle along valleys folded along the top of the North Downs through Harvel. This section includes what we believe to be the steepest (although very short) hill in Kent. Achievement badges will be awarded to anyone who manages to cycle up it! Then you will have an easy ride through Vigo, Fairseat and a long steady descent down Tumblefield Road to Stansted and back to the start.

Just a quick e-mail to say that I took part in the 23 mile ride yesterday. It was friendly, well organised & very enjoyable. It was a great day, for a good cause. Well done & look forward to next year!
