Event Overview

ENTRIES STILL AVAILABLE ON THE DAY - REGISTER AT HILDEN PARK GOLF & LEISURE CENTRE - EMAIL ANY ENQUIRIES TO EVENTS@KENTVELOGIRLS.CO.UK

The Kent Velo Girls Sportive is back for 2017. Starting at Hilden Park Golf & Leisure Club in Hildenborough, our three routes will take you on a journey through the beautiful winding lanes of Kent and Surrey with plenty of glorious scenery along the way. Whilst all riders are very welcome to join us, this is an event primarily organised for women by women. 

The event is friendly, well organised and is becoming well known for its fantastic feed stops supplied with home made brownies & flapjacks!

Hilden Park will also provide hot soup for all finishers.

We are delighted to be supporting a local charity this year:  Demelza is a children’s hospice charity in the south east of England, providing vital care to families across East Sussex, Kent and South East London.

With three distances - 20/40/60 miles to choose from, there is something for everyone. Well signed & marshalled, & timed.

Toilets will be available at the Dormansland feed stop (on the 40/60 mile routes).

Medium (40 miles)A classic scenic ride through the picturesque Weald of Kent, this route is reasonably hilly but all your hard work will be rewarded with stunning views. This route is suitable for cyclists with some experience of sportives who are perhaps looking to challenge themselves further. Good level of fitness required.Minimum age 12

Long (60miles) - A varied and beautiful, challenging day in the saddle, this 60 mile ride through the High Weald of Kent leads onto the open heaths of Ashdown Forest. Including the iconic category 4 OFFICIAL 100Climbs No19 Kidds Hill climb, aka "The Wall", there are plenty of climbs to challenge the spring cycling legs and beautiful scenery around every turn to reward your efforts. Good level of fitness essential.
