One of the most popular bike rides in the South East, the Castle Ride 100 attracts 1,000 riders to this must-do event. The North Downs offer some big climbs, including the mile-long climb of Hollingbourne Hill. Quiet lanes make the route through the Garden of England a real joy to ride even though this is a tough one.

Whether you are an experienced rider aiming to get a fast time or a rider aiming to make a day of it and take in the sights, this ride is for you.
Expect excellent feed stations manned by friendly volunteers and a buffet style lunch mid-way through the ride that you will find hard to tear yourself away from! Riders will be supported by first class medical support, mechanical services and a sweep vehicle.
