The Good Friday Sportive

Good Friday Chain Gang!

Now in its second year, The Good Friday Sportive is the perfect way to start your Easter weekend!  For 2016 we’ve revamped the route to offer cyclists of all abilities a new and interesting challenge through Kent and East Sussex.  With a choice of three distances, there is one to suit you!

Setting out from Folkestone Rugby Club on the edge of the Kent Downs, the fully signed route quickly enters the countryside to follow quiet lanes that offer up a mixture of undulating terrain.  There will be some testing climbs, exhilarating descents and fast flats with the final approach to Hythe offering over 20 miles of head down TT style riding!

The route takes in some well-known landmarks along with breath-taking scenery including The Devil’s Kneading Trough at Hastingliegh, Bodiam Castle, Kent and East Sussex Light Railway and plenty of picturesque villages.  Quiet roads are the order of the day and you won’t be disappointed.  

On the day you can expect excellent support from our team of mechanics, medics, motorcycle marshals and a broom wagon.  On route there will be well stocked feed stations located in village halls where you can grab a cuppa, a snack and chill out before hitting the road again.

Whichever distance you decide to take on, you can be sure of a good day in the saddle with the iCycle Events team.  At the finish you’ll be presented with a well-earned finishers medal and afterwards you can enjoy a complimentary massage and a hot meal.
