Event Summary

Event Overview

One Lump or Two?
A Sportive with a difference; Chase The Pace offers one or two laps over a teasing but testing circuit through the Kent Downs.  Setting out from Sittingbourne our route quickly enters the countryside and meanders along quiet lanes that are abundant in the area.  The autumn landscape serves up a delightfgul blanket of colour as the undulating terrain takes the route to the feature climb of the Devil’s Kneading Trough at the halfway point.


You Set The Pace, You Chase It!
Have you ever wondered what you could have done differently on a Sportive?  The second lap gives you the chance to do just that.  Knowing what lies ahead the second time around will you push harder up that hill again or will you pace it out so that you not in the red zone at the summit? 


Route Features

Not quite up for two laps; why not just do the one?  At 47 miles it is still a challenge with all the same ingredients of the two lap version, just less miles!  Passing through Doddington, Stalisfield, Wye and Newnham You can expect excellent support out on the signed route with High5 powered feed stations, medical and mechanic provision, roaming moto marshals and a broom wagon.

Pedal For A Purpose

As well as a great day in the saddle that this event offers we are asking riders taking part to raise sponsorship for our charity partner Demelza Hospice Care for Children; a charity supporting families across Kent, South East London and East Sussex.
