The North and South Downs Escapade
From the start in Canterbury the route takes you South West from the city on a mixture of off-road trails and quiet back roads before reaching Charing and turning North West past Maidstone and towards Medway. Then it is West towards Surrey and CP1 at Box Hill before passing Guildford and getting close to Farnham on the North Downs Way. From here it’s South, passing Liphook and joining the South Downs Way just after Midhurst before riding across the beautiful South Downs towards Eastbourne. A combination of tracks and quiet roads gets you back to Charing where the outbound and inbound routes cross and you rejoin the North Downs Way back into Canterbury and the finish.
