80km route - Petit Circuit of Kent

The 80km route runs from Sevenoaks through West Malling, down to Claygate and back through Hadlow.

Following the same route as the Grand Circuit of Kent to the route split at Claygate, there is a ‘Feed Station’ soon after this in Churn Lane. After this you face a moderate climb to Brenchley with a great view north across the Garden of England toward Paddock Wood from the top. It is now a moderate but fast descent, thereafter mainly flat roads via the Hop Farm at Paddock Wood and East Peckham [Mini Circuit of Kent rejoins here] to the village of Hadlow. With some 17kms to the finish the road crosses the A227 at Shipbourne and the gradient increases gradually until you reach the hamlet of Underriver where the road climbs steeply up Carters Hill with just 3kms to go! Have you left enough in reserve not to walk it? At the top of Carters Hill it is largely downhill for the final 1km to the finish.
