The Kent cycling classic. Hilly or undulating? Test yourself and let us know

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 includes Toys Hill!

Enjoy a great day in the saddle with the Action Medical Research team on this cycling event with first class support throughout the day.

"You can always expect a great day in the saddle with Action Medical Research – I know, I’ve cycled with them. Their RIDE100 series has events taking place all over the UK and a range of route distances to suit all cyclists."
Sir Dave Brailsford
