Completed a few Wiggle events this year and this was by far the toughest. Coming from the flat Fenlands of Norfolk the hills were challenging for me to say the least, but still enjoyed this well organised event..I'm glad I chose the Standard route this year but would like to attempt the Epic next year..… read more

This was my first sportive, so not got anything to compare it with! Was very glad that I had a gps nav device with the course on it, as when i missed a turning (I was getting carried away on a downhill) it pointed it out to me really quickly!Course knowledge, it would be nice is there were some 5k to go or such signs (not too many!) but a couple would have been helpful.Not sure what happened to my box of gels though!… read more

The Uk Cycling Events' Classic Series is designed with all riders in mind. With four routes to choose from and nothing too technical this is a perfect event for both experienced riders and anyone new to the sport. The accessible venue combined with the wonderful routes make for an extremely popular event, so don't miss out!

The Kent Classic is the final Classic series event of 2021, with all four routes starting and finishing at Lingfield Racecourse. All the routes head through the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, showing off the area's rolling hills, diverse landscape and beautiful wildlife.

The routes initially take you down and along the county border of East Sussex and Kent, before navigating around Hever Castle. The Long route makes its way to the most South-Easterly reaches of the Kent Downs as it loops up and around Sevenoaks before crossing over the Bough Beech reservoir and returning back to Lingfield.

After a tough but stunning day out on the road you will be well rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line. Everyone will of course receive their finisher's medal, but also you will receive beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from other event partners.

So sign up for a wonderful, professionally run cycling experience with a friendly atmosphere.

Excellent, this was my third Wiggle / UK Cycling Events event this year. A couple of signage placements need to be reviewed - the junction came up a lot faster than expected. Wet roads and leaves caused a few challenges in places.
