Around Weald Expedition

Description

206km cycling event starting from Eynsford, Kent. Controls at Forest Row, Battle, Groombridge and Farningham., plus 4 information controls.

This event has a mandatory route - you should follow the route instructions as closely as possible.

The classic summertime day-long trip around the High Weald is back in the calendar after a 7 year hiatus. Takes in some of the best climbs on the borders of Kent, Surrey, Sussex and London.

New village hall start location (fast trains also available from Swanley, 5km away) means you get to enjoy Toys Hill early on. Full control after 76km with food and drink provided prepares you for Kidd's Hill shortly after, and then there are two 'free' controls requiring receipts from shops, cafés or pubs plus a scattering of information controls (answer the questions on the brevet card provided) to keep you on track. New finish in Farningham (2km from start) makes for a lovely final approach through Knatts Valley to a riverside pub arrivée. Entries close the evening before, no 'on the line' entry available. Counts towards the Grimpeurs du Sud award and qualifies for the Gold Grimpeur Medal.
