The KM Charity Team will host its annual KM Big Bike Ride on Sunday 28th April 2019, sponsored by Vattenfall. Suppoters of Mental Health Resource are invited to take part and raise money for our charity. Riders have the choice of taking part in the popular physical cycling challenge just for fun, or to raise money for their favourite good cause through sponsorship. 

The event

The 2019 event offers a 50km route designed with leisure riders in mind or a more challenging 100km course, both heading out from Betteshanger Country Park, A258, Deal, Kent, CT14 0BF. Check-in will take place between 8am and 10am. Start time is 9am (no riders will be able to leave prior to this to allow for final route signage and marshalling checks)

  • Hot/Cold food and drink at finish available, mid-ride refreshments for all riders
  • Free sportive photograph of you during the bike ride
  • Timing chips
  • Goody bag and medal

Please note due to insurance purposes this ride is not open to anyone under the age of 12. Riders aged 12-17 must have a parental consent form signed by a parent or legal guardian and must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
