OPCC Reliability Trial - 7th Feb
07 February
A traditional reliabilty ride run by the Old Portlians which Cycling Weekly once quoted as the real Hell-of-the-Ashdown. A great, Hard-Riders, no-frills event with two fantastic routes, 100km and 68km through Kent, taking in the Ashdown Forest.

Entry on the day £5.00 . Bacon Butties, cakes and hot drinks at start/finish.
