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
