British Cyclosportive route map

June 27, 2007

The 120 mile route traces a lot of Stage 1 of this year’s Tour de France but there are some differences.

It starts in Greenwich as I doubt 5,000 cyclists would be welcome in Central London, even if it is on a Sunday morning.

I imagine the Medway Tunnel, Maidstone and Ashford are also missed for the same reason.

Memory Map users can download a zip file of the Greenwich to Canterbury route from Everyday Cycling here.

It is also on Bikely here.

UPDATE [June 28] I’ve added the route’s elevation profile.

The five feed stations are at Higham (39km), Aylesford (56km), Tonbridge (79km), Tenterden (129km) and Aldington (155km).

The toughest section will probably be the 50km stretch between Tonbridge and Tenterden and that final climb up to Farthing Common looks like a decidedly nasty way to finish a perfectly good ride.

Can’t wait.

Metcheck is currently forecasting a gusty day with light rain so lets hope the Nalini PRO windcheater that arrived today delivers on both its wind and water proofing claims.
