The Medway Big Ride returns on Sunday, 17 May 2015 bringing all forms of cycling to the people of Medway. The day starts with a selection of Evans Cycles sportives for serious riders. Cycling enthusiasts can choose a 75 mile, a 50 mile or a 30 mile route, all of which set off in the morning.
For those who don't consider themselves cyclists, but want to give a longer distance a go there's an Evans Cycles 13-mile route which sets off at 4pm.
From 4pm people can also enjoy:
Children's sprint races
Different types of innovative bikes
Coaching with Wigmore Cycling Club
Exhibition street races
Off-road treasure trail ride for families and under 5s
Arts and crafts
The evening culminates in the mass participation Medway Big Ride, a 5km route on closed roads before a floodlit stunt BMX display and a firework finale.
