HCC Tour de Cinque Ports Stage two: Hythe to Sandwich

Apr 30, 2022 | Club Event, Club News

Dear HCC,

A huge thank you to all of those who have joined the tour! Can you believe stage one is days from being decided?

Stage two sees us visit another of the Cinque Ports, Sandwich. A popular, destination for solo and club runs alike. The segment with be open from 1/5/22 for the entirety of May. Any efforts outside of may will not be counted.

Rider’s Report:

One possibly for a club run. Ride leaders can plan a route to go through Sandwich down New Road towards Deal.

Cautions: Keep extra vigilant on main roads in Denton and on every junction. Making a second or two on a junction is not worth the risk. This is about a longer, sustained effort. Unlike stage one, this is not a sprint. It’s longer and lumpier, a very technical route – a southerly wind may help. Do it as a group, do it solo and ride back or do it solo and catch the train. However you do it, ride safe and have fun. It is just for fun, this will not be featured on GCN.

Same rules apply, have as many attempts as you wish, only your best time will stand. Please study the stage two information carefully.

Stage one is still open, yet has been genuinely thrilling. It will be open until Saturday 2359 for those who want that last ditch attempt to get a time on the board, the wind is still favourable for the rest of April.

A full report and results for stage one will be posted early next week.

Keep up the cadence,
