Kellys Storage Charity Events
Well organised event. The cadets did an excellent job of helping everyone to park. Good toilet facilities. Great knowledgeable bike mechanic. The briefing was very informative. The 50 mile route was very pretty and a good test of my fitness. Fantastic food stops. The volunteers were always smiling and encouraging. A couple of things to mention. It was very disappointing to finish the event and everything was packed up. Felt a bit flat after putting such a huge effort in. Also towards the end needed a few more green arrows as we weren’t sure we were on the right road. Really enjoyed the event and I hope you raised a lot of money for your charity.
Really fun family event- my kids loved it. Superb atmosphere
Second time for Kelly’s, beautiful scenery. Well signed and marshalled and 100% of the charge goes to charity unlike other organised rides which is brilliant. Great fun for all
Well organised and thorough preparation by Kelly's team made for a relaxed and very enjoyable ride
As ever, well organised and all the Kelly's staff always had a smile!
Always well-organised but relaxed, non- race feeling to it. Great introduction to new routes in beautiful countryside. mostly quiet roads, but picked up later on in morning and some small lanes not ideal to meet traffic on. (Cars fault not yours! )
Great that all only raised goes to Challengers and there were helpful, presumably volunteer, Marshall’s etc.
Huge thank you to all the Kelys team. My first ride event and it matched the running events. Another great course. Really enjoyed it. Highly recommend for anyone with a bike as there is a route for everyone.
Great course,lots of hills but not too extreme. Nice quiet roads and lovely scenery. Only down side,could make cut off points and finish of event another hour longer. Shame to arrive and things being taken down!!.
The event was a wee gem! Quiet pretty lanes and lovely views - a real joy to cycle! Course was undulating but never extreme, could always spin to top. Everyone friendly and a great mix of cyclists. Surpassed all expectations and want to return to the area to explore. Thanks to Kelly's and all the volunteers for a great event.
Just two comments, savoury/salty options woul be great at feed stations...nuts/sausage rolls etc and also a couple more green arrows on the last but one long straight as we thought we had missed the route and had to keep checking!
My first Kellys experience , top marks to the organizers , good choice of distances , mostly quiet roads (I did the 50miler), fabulous selection of fuels at the pit stops - probably the best I’ve seen in 10 years of cycling . And a warm and enthusiastic welcome when we got back. A brilliant day out and I’ll be very happy to support future events .
A big thank you to all who gave their time.
Lovely route, lovely people and amazing weather. We did this event in 2018 on a tandem and today on single bikes and it was a wonderful day out both times. Perfect choice of distances and mostly on country lanes. Superb signposting and just enough participants for atmosphere but roads don't get crowded. Massive thank you to all the volunteers who got up at dawn and kept us safe and fed with tasty homade cakes throughout the day. Can recommend if you like smaller, friendly very well organised events and raising money whilst doing your favourite hobby.
This is the 2nd time I’ve done the Alice Holt Forst/Kelly’s Cycle Challenge. It’s a well-organised relatively small event in hilly/undulating countryside. Be prepared for lots of ups & downs! Not having so many riders means thankfully you aren’t crowded-out down narrow lanes, but it also means there are long stretches of road where you might not see another rider. Thank goodness for the signage being well-placed and very visible. It was excellent. All in all a very good ride to do. Recommended ✅
a well signposted ride with great scenery and feeding stations. A very well organised and friendly event.
Great event, well organised, loved the ice cream at the end….
Excellent, will be back next year!
Great event. Friendly, well organised, lovely route and lots of sunshine ☀️
Great event, all the marshals very friendly and supportive. Well sign posted. Will be back next year
Excellent organisation and very friendly
Great event as always, my third year. Super friendly teams and well run even in Covid times. My son goes to Challengers so the £35k total is fabulous and we are delighted!
This is about the third time we have ridden this event and each time we have really enjoyed it. The weather was just right and the course was great. Everyone including the marshalls were so happy and friendly. The icing on the cake is being able to raise money for a very worthwhile cause.
A big thank you for organising such s lovely event
