Organisers of the 2010 Circuit of Kent cyclo-sportive will allow a limited number of riders to enter on the line prior to the event on Sunday, September 12.
Anyone wishing to make a late entry on the day should download and complete an entry form from the event’s website in advance, and bring it along with them to the event.
With a good weather forecast for Sunday (currently forecasting sunshine and temperatures nudging 20 degrees), it’s the perfect opportunity to sample the delights of one of Britain’s longest-running cyclo-sportives.
Two distances are available: 80km or 130km. Both start and finish at Sevenoaks Prep School, Godden Green, Sevenoaks. Registration starts from 7.30am, with riders heading off between 9-9.30am. All riders are electronically timed, and awards are given for those reaching gold, silver or bronze standard times.
One of the attractive features of the ride – aside from the beautiful rolling Kent countryside in early autumn and impeccable organisation – is the post-ride dinner. A full slap-up pasta meal, accompanied by a live band, is part of the entry fee.
All participants will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a Specialized Allez 2010 road bike worth £500, courtesy of Wildside Cycles, Tunbridge Wells.
In addition, event photographers Sportive Photo will be holding a draw for five riders to receive a free CD of their day’s ride photos. The CD draw will take place at 2.30pm at the event HQ.
