Castle Ride 100
15 May 2016

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.

The Classic route at 70 miles is nicely challenging and has an ideal mix of terrain to test your distance riding skills. Our 103 mile route Champion offers you the stiffest challenge and if you live for the hills then you will not be disappointed as the must-do horror of Hollingbourne is in the mix!

The Castle Ride100 is designed and run by Action Medical Research and you'll be raising money to fund the next medical breakthrough that will save and change Little Lives. 

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