Ride Around Kent County

Ride Around Kent County145 miles touching the 4 corners of Kent County, with 50 and 100 mile bail-outs. There are at least two groups: "Fast" (18+ average mph) and "Good" (15+ average mph). Slower paced riders will not finish by the 6 PM cut-off.

SAG, snacks, ice, and sports drinks all around the route. Lunch for 150-milers about half-way around. Sandwich provided for 100- and 50-milers.

"Best supported ride I've been on."
"You guys are the greatest!"
"Best sandwich ever."
