The Canterbury Bike Ride 2024: Sunday 21st July

We are once again returning to Canterbury Rugby Club and there will be a choice of routes provisionally 20, 52 and 73 miles long. The routes leave the rugby club and head south through the Kent Downs AONB, east to Dover Castle and along the top of the White Cliffs (with a potential view of France if the weather is kind), before heading back via Betteshanger Park, Eastry, Adisham and Bridge. The weekend will feature a new walking event called Walk Canterbury with various routes taking in historic Canterbury and the surrounding Kent countryside.

  • A choice of 3 fully marked routes with a back up route map and GPS files
  • Feed stations on the long and medium routes
  • On-course first aid and mechanical support
  • A medal and a hot meal at the end of your ride

The Canterbury Bike Ride 2024 Provisional Routes

The team behind the Canterbury Bike Ride have been have been hard at work, planning, plotting and tweaking to come up with some great routes for this year's event. We're now confident we've got some really good routes for you, however these are provisional and subject to change after further reconnaissance and risk assessments.

Walk Canterbury

Following in the footsteps (quite literally) of our 2023 Bike Oxford event, we are adding a Walk Canterbury event to the Canterbury Bike Ride weekend. The walking route, which is still undergoing reconnoissance is approximately 15 miles, taking in historic Canterbury and the fabulous Kent countryside. A route map along with local history will be provided, and all walkers will receive a medal and a hot meal at the end of the walk.
