Tonbridge Castle is the setting for the Castle Ride 100 charity cycling sportive that will see over 1,000 cyclists depart from the castle lawns. The Garden of England serves up a mixture of quiet villages and beautiful scenery as you meander along quiet lanes. Expect some tough climbs on this charity bike ride as you pedal through the challenging North Downs to raise vital funds to help sick and disabled babies and children.
You can take on the shorter route which is ideal if you’re new to cycling. The Classic route is more challenging and the Champion route offers you the stiffest challenge and throws in the horror of Hollingbourne into the mix!
Enjoy a great day in the saddle with the Action Medical Research team on this cycling event with first class support throughout the day.
What the riders said
Many thanks again my 5th year of completing the Tonbridge Castle event it must be one of the best backdrops around
since the rerouting on the last section a couple of years ago the undulations between Brenchley & Tonbridge do hurt but as they say no pain no gain Well done to all for keeping us safe and well nourished
The 100-mile course was superb in terms of scenery and severity, and the weather was perfect. Great organisation and atmosphere. Looking forward to my next outing.
I've done many sportives in the UK and overseas, this is by far the best. Faultless. Well done to all and I hope the coffers are full to overflowing for a wonderful cause. Well done.
Having just taken part in the cycle ride, i just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with the whole event from the organisation to the friendliness of the staff taking part.
Thanks again for an enjoyable day.
Thanks for organising a fantastic event! Great route, excellent feed stations and most of all friendly and welcoming helpers. So glad we all had good weather! An excellent day.
