If you enjoy cycling or are intrigued to find out what it’s all about, there are some exciting new events and activities coming up! The inaugural Kent Sport Cycling Festival will be centred at the University of Kent Canterbury campus from 30 April to 11 May.
Festival Launch – Get on your bike and join more than 1,000 cyclists of all abilities for the Pilgrims Hospices Cycle Challenge on Sunday 30 April. Pilgrims Hospices is a charity providing specialist palliative care free of charge to people in east Kent and depends on fundraising from community events such as this one. So move it up a gear as you explore the beautiful Kent countryside with friends, family and colleagues. All routes will start from and finish at the event village at the Pavilion, Parkwood. More than just a registration area, with trade stands, our renowned bike mechanics, sports massage, local cycling groups, hot food and drinks and much more. You’ll enjoy all the excitement of a cycling festival.
The fun continues with numerous activities, with something happening every day throughout the festival. Activities include challenges, coaching, workshops, led rides and races for all.
The Kent Sport Cycling Festival culminates with the official launch of the Kent Sport Cycle Hub at the Pavilion on 11 May. The Cycle Hub offers bike hire, maintenance, tuition, group rides and more. Join us there to find out about this new campus facility and to be a part of this milestone event. The Cycle Hub launch may be the finale to the Cycling Festival, but will be part of the ongoing journey for the growing cycling community on campus and within the local area who can now enjoy the Pavilion and Cycle Hub facilities to enhance their adventures.
