London to Canterbury 14 Sept 2014
#1
For all you people who moaned about the London to Brighton last June the London to Canterbury ride is an alternative that is not overcrowded, without a logistical nightmare to get to the start / be picked up from finish and it's sponsored by an energy bar company with free bars and drinks at every marshal point.

It looks like there are still places left including for the bus from Canterbury to the start in London.

With 65 miles it's marginally longer than the London to Brighton with a similar route of country lanes and one climb to remember (but not as memorable as Detling Hill). You can choose after about 60 miles whether you are up for the 80 miles. Last year I managed the 80 miles on my MTB, it was not a walk in the park but my experience is that most Sketchy riders are fitter/younger/possibly better looking than me so that shouldn't be an issue.

And now for my ulterior motive: the organisers are the Children's Trust and they ask you get some (GBP60) sponsorship money, here are my efforts you can contribute to: https://www.justgiving.com/Willem-van-Hoorn-L2C2014/

Dammit! How did this pass me by? I'd have been bang up for this, but did a ride for the air ambulance yesterday! I won't be able to get away to do two in two weekends and even if I could I'd have to ask the same people for more sponsorship etc.
Looks like a good one man, have a good time.
