Medway Big Ride
The Medway Big Ride is our mass participation
cycling event, encourage the people of Medway
to get active and get cycling.
Medway Big Ride 2016 takes place on Sunday, 19 June 2016 at
Medway Park, Gillingham. Kent. ME71HF.
It is supported by Care UK
and the Will
Adams NHS Treatment Centre.
We have also teamed up with
Evans Cycles sportives to bring RIDE IT to the
Medway Big Ride event.
The sportive routes start from Medway Park from 8am and take
riders on a tour of the Kent countryside heading east towards
Faversham then south into the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding
Natural Beauty. It’s a mixture of rolling terrain
interspersed with short sharp climbs and a few longer and more
challenging climbs to test riders on the longer route distances
The Big Ride mass participation event starts at 12midday
this year, where people can enjoy a full afternoon of cycling
and family activities, including:
- Family mass ride at 2.15pm
This 5km (approx.) route takes you out of Medway Park onto the
surrounding closed roads via the University of Kent and returning
to a track finish, suitable for all ages. All under 12's should be
accompanied and supervised and we will add a shortened turning
point for our younger riders.
