Pilgrims Hospices Cycle ChallengeRegister

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us for last year’s Cycle Challenge. Together, we raised an incredible £114,000; that’s enough to pay for more than 5,700 hours of nursing care!

Move up a gear for the Pilgrims Hospices Cycle Challenge  on Sunday 6 May 2018

Kent’s biggest charity ride is back for it’s 9th year. Get on your bike and explore the beautiful Kent countryside with friends, family and colleagues. Attracting over 1,200 riders every year, the cycle challenge is designed for cyclists of all abilities. You can ride it your way by choosing one of three ride distances:

The Classic45 milesThe Challenge75 milesThe Century100 miles

We’ve listened to the great feedback of our participants and are delighted to announce we’ve made some exciting improvements to this popular event for 2018, set to enhance your experience further:

All routes will start from, and finish at, our event village at the University of Kent near Canterbury. More than just a registration area – with trade stands, our renowned Dr Bike mechanics, sports massage, local cycling interest groups, hot food and drinks and much more, you’ll enjoy all the excitement of a cycling festival. Ample free parking is available across the campus as shown here.

We’ve tweaked our popular ride routes to make them even more enjoyable. And for those looking to take their ride up a gear, we see the return of the notorious Stowting Hill. Explore the landscape of east Kent like never before, all the time knowing that, with every pedal, you’re making a huge difference to the lives of people who are living with a life-limiting illness.
