Great Kent Bike Ride 

East Kent Hospitals Charity wants you to come and explore the varied landscape of ancient towns, gentle hills and unspoilt shingle beaches to help raise money for a worthy cause.

Whether you like long relaxing bike rides or want to race your friends on a shorter route, there is something for everyone on the Great Kent Bike Ride!

The two shorter routes take you on a picturesque journey of the Garden of England, before you meet the sea and split, where you can choose to follow quiet country lanes through Kent’s pretty villages, or take a slightly longer route through Denge and Walland marshes.

If you feel up to the 100 mile route, this exciting challenge ride features chip-timing and web results so after the event, you can see your overall time and average speed along with the opportunity to compare your time with others.

At the finish, relax with refreshments after your day in the saddle.

Entry packs for the 35 and 60 mile routes are £19.50 per adult and the 100 mile route is £24.00 per adult. Alternative prices are available for 14-16 years, team entry and cycling club members.

Your entry fee goes towards the cost of running the ride safely only. Sponsorship on top of this makes a significant difference to so many lives.

By raising funds for East Kent Hospitals Charity, you can make a lasting difference by helping us with a variety of projects and patient support at all five hospitals run by East Kent Hospitals University Foundation Trust.
