Tour of the Weald sportive - Sunday 31st March 2013

HQ Staplehurst Village Centre, High St., Staplehurst, TN12 0BJ (map)

Hall open from 7am – Groups start from 8am.

Back for 2013 – chip timing – pick yours  up at registration.

Also we have re-routed the first 10k to include the little climb of East Hall Hill (up to Wierton) and also amended the route back so that it includes the descent of Sutton Valence Hill – 70kph is possible here !

New for 2013 – Hot food post event from Petes chuck wagon !

Fast becoming established as one of Mid-Kent’s favourite Sportives
108k loop with 6 major climbs, also includes a KOM timed ride up the last climb of the day which will see the quickest male and female riders awarded the Polka Dot jersey.  Comments were typical: “extremely well signposted , never in danger of going off-route ” , and ” those climbs ! compensated though by those fantastic descents ! ”

As well as the excellent signage we supply route maps and course description, have a well-stocked feed station at 55k and a large hall with kitchen facilities before and after the ride. If that’s not enough there is also low-cost post-event massage for those who need it (who doesn’t ?). All this for £15 – why pay more ?
