Ash­ford Wheel­ers CC hosts the Crown, an an­nual Au­dax event. The route runs from Ash­ford to St Mar­garet’s Bay, just along the coast from Dover.

Paul Brit­ton, com­mit­tee chair, who or­gan­ises the event with help from his fam­ily, says: “It’s a 100km grimpeur ride, with about 1,700m of climb­ing. It’s a fairly low-key event. We nor­mally get about 35 peo­ple tak­ing part.”

Next year the event, a qual­i­fy­ing ride for the es­teemed Brevet des Grimpeurs du Sud, will be held on Au­gust 26 (the bank hol­i­day) and is open to all. Full de­tails and en­try will ap­pear on the club web­site next year.
