The new route and feedstop in 2019 seemed to be well received, as was the the sunshine and Kent's fine countryside: along the Greensand ridge, through haunted Pluckley and historic Tenterden. There were extensive views over Romney Marsh before returning through Sissinghurst and Goudhurst with a long downhill at the end. The feed stops were at 55km and 85km. At the same time a tremendous £3,800 was raised for the Air Ambulance
A reminder of the route is below.
