Cycling Event: British Heart Foundation Kent Coast Bike Ride

6th October 2014

The upcoming Robin Hood bike ride for British Heart Foundation has been cancelled, but there is another race for the charity taking place in Kent.

The Kent Coast Bike Ride for British Heart Foundation is a perfect family friendly route with two journey lengths – 30 miles or 56 miles.

Once known as the Viking Bike Ride, the East Kent route is ideal for those cyclists of all abilities.

30 mile route: Suitable for all types of bike and a great family friendly cycling option. Taking in the views of Ramsgate, Margate and Reculver, you will be on predominately quiet roads and cycle paths.

56 mile route: The longer route travels from Whitstable to Canterbury and go towards Sandwich, Pegwell Bay and Ramsgate. We recommend a hybrid or mountain bike for this longer route.

Remember that the 30 mile route is perfect for everyone, as long as they’re capable of confidently riding on the road. If there are any under 16s in your party, however, they should be accompanied by an over 18 at all times.


Start gently and build up your training exercises, regardless of which route you choose.  If you want more information and help with long distance cycling and training, please read our other blogs.
