Overview

The Kelly's Cycle Challenge returns for a SEVENTH consecutive year with more of the same beautiful routes for you to enjoy. At Alice Holt HQ there will be Pizza and coffee to cater for all the needs of the cyclists! We've been known as the friendliest sportive around so come along and join the gang! All three sportive routes follow quiet country roads, with plenty of great views and open road riding to be had. The long distance is great for the seasoned cyclist, whilst the middle distance is a firm favourite, and will also suit those looking for a step up from the short course or those in training for a longer ride. The short route sets off later and is ideal for new riders plus families with older children. THERE IS NO ENTRY FEE FOR THIS EVENT BUT WE WELCOME VOLUNTARY DONATIONS TO CHALLENGERS. WE SUGGEST AN AMOUNT IN LINE WITH SIMILAR EVENTS. 23 miles £26; 50 miles £35;72 miles £40; KELLY'S STORAGE CHARITY EVENTS COVER ALL COSTS SO EVERY PENNY GIVEN GOES DIRECTLY TO CHALLENGERS SO PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY! Psst! E-bikes and hand bikes are allowed.

 

We are taking every necessary precaution on the day to keep you safe including staggered starts and social distancing measures. We are sure this event will go ahead but in case the government rulings change we will have to postpone the event. Please follow all advice on our website.

Great event as always, my third year. Super friendly teams and well run even in Covid times. My son goes to Challengers so the £35k total is fabulous and we are delighted!
