VO2 Sportive Series

New for 2017, the V02 Sportive Series combines all three of our events into one season long challenge. 

Starting with the V02 Sportive in March you’ll explore some of the best cycling in Kent.  Take on killer climbs and fast descents as you put your winter training to the test. 

Next, head to the coast in May with a start line amongst the Lions and Rhinos of Port Lympne Reserve. Don’t be fooled by the fast flat miles across the marshes, as the course soon starts rolling with a few hills to test the legs. 

The final leg of the series takes you to the iconic racecourse of Lingfield in October for a rolling route across the High Weald.
