The Hundred of Kingston

June 22 @ 9:00 am - 8:00 pm

The Hundred of Kingston or Kingston Hundred was an ancient hundred in the county of Surrey. It is also the name of a 100 mile randonnée to commemorate 100 years of Kingston Wheelers Cycling Club.
As well as a celebration of the club this is a classic route down towards the coast taking in many of the most iconic roads and climbs in the South of England. It is also an ideal introduction to audax rides as although at 100 miles it is shorter than the usual 200km (120 miles), it is run in exactly the same manner with a specified route and controls at set distances.
Starting from the Alpkit Store (who are providing beverages) in Kingston’s Anglo Saxon centre you will enjoy some of the best roads where you will gather steam toward the South Downs, stopping at the first control which is a catered brunch stop at the Bluebell Railway (entry price includes a breakfast bap and a drink plus a platform ticket). You will then take in the legendary Ditchling Beacon and Devils Dyke climbs in the South Downs before a short break at the Wildflour Cafe at Saddlescombe Farm NT. Once refreshed there is a straight run back up to the North Downs with controls at Shere and Ripley using some of the current and historic Kingston Wheelers club run routes.
Arrivée at The Park Brewery taproom where you will be provided with refreshment.
