The Kent Velo Girls Sportive is back for 2015 with a new home. Starting at Hilden Park in Hildenborough, our three routes will take you on a journey through the beautiful winding lanes of Kent and Surrey with plenty of glorious scenery along the way. Whilst all riders are very welcome to join us, this is an event primarily organised for women by women.
20 mile entry level challenge route - 1073 ft (32km/327metres)
A stunning route through quiet lanes of the Kentish Weald offering scenic views over the charming Kent countryside, with its oast houses, spring lambs and bluebells. This route is suitable for families and cyclists perhaps looking to take part in their first sportive, and requires a reasonable level of fitness to enjoy the rolling nature of the terrain covered.
