The 12 Hour
The site contains information about the Kent Cycling Association annual 12 Hour Time Trial which takes place on the roads of Kent.
Riders are dispatched at minute intervals and ride over a set course for 12 hours. The last few hours are ridden around a circuit which has timekeepers at various points. Riders complete as many circuits as possible until the time runs out. When a rider has completed his 12 hours he rides on to the next time keeper before stopping. His final mileage is based on a calculated distance between the last two timekeepers.
The 2017 Event will be on the 25 June 2017.
There have been some minor amendments to the 2017 KCA 12 Hour course. The event starts in Bull Lane and turns at Singleton RAB (Not Ashford Matalan). Riders will then Turn at Kingsnorth 1 (also known as Park Farm, and Tesco RABs) retrace to the top of Ham Street Hill and follow the link road to join the A2070 northward. They will then ride to Cloverleaf where they turn and join the previous course. Revised distances are on the CTT South East District courses page. We have updated the site with the latest course details (June 2016).

The number of laps for each circuit will be recorded as the Riders pass Brookland RAB during the day so times may be earlier or later than the time at Brenzett, which is where the distance is calculated from, depending on the direction of travel.
The 2017 event is planned for Sunday 25th June. This is much earlier and we hope will avoid many of the issues from previous years. It is close to the longest day so no issues over lights. The
