Staged at Betteshanger Park, near Deal, participants were offered the choice of a 50K countryside or 100K coastal routes.

Riders raised vital money for charitable organisations including Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance, and the East Kent Mercury's charity of the year Pegasus Playscheme.

During the ride, cyclists were treated to the perfect pit stop thanks to key partners The Rose Inn at Wickhambreaux which provided the fitting venue to refresh and prepare for the remainder of the challenge event.
