Get those bikes out of the shed and explore Kent this summer with FREE guided rides taking place all over the county.
In partnership with Kent County Council, British Cycling and Sky Ride is bringing a programme of bike rides throughout the summer to improve people’s confidence or to set them a challenge. With 65 different routes, there’s plenty to chose from.
Each one is guided by British Cycling Ride leaders along scenic routes and pitched at three different levels – easygoing, steady and challenging.
Whether its a family day out or if you are a keen cyclist but not quite the next Chris Hoy, there is a route for everyone!
