Kent's friendliest sportive is back on 6th October! The Kent Velo Sportive 2019 has routes to cater for everyone and our famous feed stops with homemade goodies! Organised and run by volunteers from Vent Velo Girls & Kent Velo Boys, all profits go to charity. This year we are supporting West Kent Mind and Wheels for Wellbeing.
Starting at Hilden Park Golf & Leisue Club in Hildenborough, our three comprehensively signed and marshalled routes will take you on a journey through the beautiful winding lanes of Kent and Surrey with plenty of glorious scenery along the way:
- Family Friendly 20 - a scenic route through the Garden of Kent
- Challenge 40 - country lanes & fabulous views
- Classic 60 - taking in the beautiful Ashdown Forest & Kidds Hill
With discounted family and under 16 entry fees, mechanical support from Wildside Cycles, yet more food at the finish, a raffle, goody bag for all riders and timing chips to plot your progress accurately along the way, the Kent Velo 2019 sportive promises to be a fantastic day for all.
Affiliated to the national charity Mind, West Kent Mind is an independent charity based in Sevenoaks and Tonbridge supporting people with mental health problems to stay well, get the right services and support and participate fully in society.
Wheels for Wellbeing is an award-winning charity supporting disabled people of all ages and abilities to enjoy the benefits of cycling. Wheels for Wellbeing provides direct support to more than 1000 disabled people a year to discover or rediscover cycling.
