Cycling in Kent takes you through fascinating landscapes where England’s history has been altered time and time again. It’s a county of fishing villages, low-lying farmland, expansive beaches and rolling, green downland. As you pedal, you pass centuries-old churches, villages where time stands still and the remains of a Roman past. You can certainly take on thigh-burning climbs to viewpoints but many of the cycle routes in Kent are gentle, enabling you to ride further and explore more. 


Aside from the sheer pleasure of cycling in this historic landscape, there are lots of objectives to add into your adventures. The most obvious ones include Whitstable’s brightly coloured seaside cottages and Canterbury’s 1,400-year old cathedral. But Henry VIII’s castle in Deal, Herne Bay’s Reculver Towers and the exquisite 13th-century Hever Castle all conspire to keep you cycling through this fantastic county perhaps far longer than you intended.
