Section 3, the East Kent Loop of the Riders’ Route, heads out from Wye and up to the Kings Woods, offering sensational views across the Downs and all the way to Canterbury. Section 3 is 55.6 miles long.
The famous 153-mile North Downs Way National Trail is now rideable, winding through through the Kent Downs and Surrey Hills Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Quiet and almost entirely traffic free, our Riders’ Route is easy to follow, family friendly and – above all – absolutely beautiful. It can be broken up into easy to manage sections so you have the choice of testing your skills as a cyclist or horse rider on challenging hills, or just enjoying the scenery on a pretty family day out on two wheels or even four legs!
On this section of the Riders’ Route, you'll head out from Wye towards historic Canterbury, either winding through the 1,500 acre Kings Wood or picking up the Great Stour Path along the river. Find outdoor sculptures, enjoy sweeping views of the hills and explore the medieval walled city
