West Kent RC Reliability Trial 8th January 2017

November 30, 2016

Start the new year with a ride !!  
Our annual reliability trial will take place on Sunday 8th January 2017. 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, 28 or 50 miles, heading over the North Downs to The Weald of Kent (and back again !!)

The ride HQ is Horton Kirby Cricket Club, Franks Lane, Horton Kirby, Dartford DA4 9JJ. There is car parking, but please park with consideration for the local residents.
The HQ will open at 8.15am, and first riders will leave at 9am in groups of no more than ten at a time. There will be a tea bar available.
The HQ is close to Jct. 3 of the M25, and just over a mile from Farningham Road Rail Station.
Entry fee of £5 is payable on the day, with all profits going to charity.
Route sheets and .GPX or .TCX files are provided (see bottom of this post to download)  and there will be marshals at certain points on the course.
Please follow our social network accounts for updates on the event, especially if the weather forecast is poor.
