The Wiggle Kent Classic Sportive has been designed to take you out of Surrey and into Kent for what will surely be a memorable day in the saddle.
Setting off from the village of Lingfield you will be out in the country before you know it, as all three routes head south to Wych Cross taking in the first of many quaint little villages you’ll cycle through during the ride. It is around this point, at the 7-mile mark, that you’ll tackle the first real steady climb of the day.
At Colemans Hatch, the Short route riders can relax knowing that they’ve completed the hardest part of their ride with only two steady climbs left to tackle. It’s at this point they will split off from the other routes as they head North towards Edenbridge.
Epic and Standard riders, however, go straight into the steepest climb of the day as they pass through Newbridge and make their way toward Royal Tunbridge Wells.
Shortly past Groombridge, the course divides again as the Standard riders head north with Royal Tunbridge Wells to their East. They won’t see the Epic riders again until they reach Sevenoaks, having taken in Langton Green, Penshurst and Chiddingstone, to name but a few of the villages along the route.
Epic riders continue East as they ride into the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are a few short climbs along this section of the course that might take you by surprise. Notable elevation changes occur around Goudhurst, another just past Yalding and a third at Roughway. These should serve as nice testers to get you warmed up for the final climb at Dunks Green, that ascends steadily for several miles before peaking at Sevenoaks Common. It is here that you’ll embark on a nice decent before rejoining the Standard riders once again. From here, it’s a 14-mile ride back to Lingfield, via the village of Edenbridge, with no major challenges looming.
With three routes to choose from, The Wiggle Kent Classic Sportive has something to offer cyclists of all abilities, whether you’re a beginner or someone that likes a bit of a challenge - all the while soaking in some of the best countryside Britain has to offer. After all, Kent is called The Garden of England for a reason.
