Overview

Starting in the shadow of the magnificent Tonbridge Castle, Ride Castle offers something for every level of cyclist, with four routes to choose from, ranging from an epic 124 miles to an accessible 33 mile course. The three longest distances are fully supported, with feed stations, medical assistance, mechanical support and even motorcycle outriders to ensure a premium feel, with every turn of the pedals. 

The highlight of the ride is the view across Kent from Ide Hill, flagrantly showing off the beauty of this county in all its glory, living up to its nickname of The Garden of England. The final few miles of the ride take riders on some lovely quiet lanes and past the spectacular Penshurst Place.
