94th West Kent CTC Cycle UK Anniversary ride

The West Kent CTC / Cycle UK’s annual anniversary ride went ahead on Sunday 25th February in spite of the arctic weather of the previous week. Understandably it did put many people off but a few brave souls ventured out. Surprisingly, considering the vast quantities of snow that was still laying on Friday, the roads and countryside was mainly clear and it was perfectly safe to ride. The Duke of Wellington made us welcome as always and a good time was had by all.

Grab a Grimpeur!

Sunday March 25th

Our annual jaunt around the hills local to Sevenoaks, if you want to do the 100km then it’s 2 laps of a circuit, the 2nd lap in reverse to the 1st so you can “enjoy” the hills the other way round! Otherwise, the Hilly just does the one lap.

  • Starts clockwise this year.
  • Free food at the start/finish!

Easiest way to enter is through here:

If you’re not up to riding it, how about volunteering a few hours of your time to help out on the day? No tasks are too onerous, and you’ll be able to drink copious amounts of tea!

For those of you that want a West Kent CTC medal, then this is one of the qualifying rides.

Limited entries on the day will be available.
