Event Summary

Event Overview

The Sportive Challenge


Heading out along the roads that run alongside the River Medway participants will quickly find themselves in Kent countryside with orchards and swaths of pasture that present a colourful landscape.  The terrain offers up some teasing climbs with sweeping descents as riders crank out the miles through the quiet lanes.  Highlights include the pretty villages of Hartlip, Borden, the quaint house of Boughton-under-Blean and Faversham which boasts the oldest brewery in the country.

What’s Included
•    Fully signed route
•    Electronic timing
•    Feed stations
•    Medical support
•    Mechanical support
•    Finishers medal

Cycle 4 Heroes is being held to coincide with Armed Forces Day and will be celebrated throughout the nation as they show their support for our Armed Forces.  In Medway it is a very large scale event which takes place on the Great Lines in Gillingham and is attended by many thousands of people each year.
