Sad­dle up for bike chal­lenge

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Cy­clists are to take on a 100-mile course around Ash­ford to raise money for char­ity.

The Great Kent Bike Ride sets off from North Park in Tan­nery Lane on Sun­day, with all funds go­ing to the East Kent Hos­pi­tals Char­ity.

For the less hard­core cy­clists there is a choice of 35- and 60-mile routes through coun­try­side and along the coast.

There will be live mu­sic at the fin­ish line – again in North Park – with a beer tent and re­fresh­ments.

Start times for the 100-mile ride are be­tween 7am and 8am, while the 35- and 60-mile routes start be­tween 8am and 9am.

Re­fresh­ment sta­tions will be placed along the route, with medics, me­chan­ics and sup­port ve­hi­cles on hand.

Last year more than 40,000 peo­ple took part in sim­i­lar events across the coun­try, with £1 mil­lion raised for char­ity.

To sign up and for more in­for­ma­tion go to or­ to sign up on­line.
