Ride 100 miles while staying within 5 miles of Canterbury. Simple!
This local ride stays within a 5 mile radius of Canterbury at all times and in keeping with current guidelines is only open to solo riders or pairs from the same household. Do not ride this as a group and do not travel by car to start it. Only attempt this if you live nearby.
The route weaves its way around Canterbury with no doubling back on itself so you never have to ride the same road twice. There's no official start point so pick up the route near your home and follow it round and enjoy exploring some forgotten roads on our doorstep.
This reliability ride is not a race and can be completed over the May bank holiday weekend. It covers 100 miles (160 km) with around 5200 feet (1600 m) of climbing. It's an unsupported ride so ensure you have all the provisions you need and that you have suitable spares to fix any issues yourself.
If you have never completed 100 miles before then this route is a perfect route to test yourself on. Don't fancy doing 100 miles? Not to worry, with the route never being more than five miles away from Canterbury it gives you plenty of options to retire early if you need to.
There are loads of resupply points along the route. Notable convenance stores en route are in Sturry, Bridge, Shalmsford Street and Boughton service station but there are more in Canterbury slightly off route.
For those that complete the ride you'll get no fan fare finish or any kind of finishers medal. Just some memories and no doubt sore legs! Have fun, stay safe and enjoy.
