The Fifth Continent
A challenging figure of eight ride to the unique location of Dungeness and back through the best Kent, Sussex and Surrey countryside. Many small lanes and undulations make this ride harder than it looks on paper.
According to the Ingoldsby Legends 'The World, according to the best geographers, is divided into Europe, Asia, Africa, America, and Romney Marsh'. We present this ride to this unique location to mark the 100th anniversary of the first BRM ride. ** Subject to Covid-19 restrictions the plan is to open registration for the ride on 1st June 2021. The details below are the current plans and will be amended if required ** Enjoy a breakfast at the start and leave the city behind before most are awake towards the first staffed control at Stonegate Village Hall for some fuel and TLC. Then pass historic Winchelsea and Rye before traversing the Romney Marsh to Dungeness with its numerous sights such at the steam railway, lighthouses, Derek Jarman's cottage, shingle and power station. Follow coast to New Romney and the (approx) halfway point. On the way back we'll once again welcome you at Stonegate Village Hall before skirting Gatwick and a final control at Pease Pottage before a last hop over the North Downs and back to the arrivée where a hot meal will be served. Entry fee includes breakfast, morning and afternoon snacks at Stonegate, and a hot meal and real ale at the arrivée. Possibility of sleepover (contact organiser).
