West Kent RC Reliability Trial 6th January 2019

December 19, 2018

Start the new year with a ride to celebrate the West Kent Road Club’s 81st year.
Our annual reliability trial will take place on Sunday 6th January 2019. Please add our event to your club’s diary and website, and don’t forget to tell your fellow members & friends.
A reliability trial is a bicycle event that challenges the cyclist to complete a course in a preset time limit but it is not a race. There is a good explanation of what they are and their history on Wikipedia.
There is a choice of two routes, 50 or 80 Km approx, heading over the North Downs to The Weald of Kent (and back again !!)
