Circuit of Kent celebrates 15th edition

Circuit of Kent 2010

The Circuit of Kent celebrates its 15th running this year on Sunday, September 9. The much celebrated south-east cyclo-sportive first ran in 1998, and has maintained its position as one of the best-organised events in the UK.

The event was one of the first to give challenge times based on age and gender, and its early success paved the way for numerous British sportives. Now the sportive calendar is packed with events from one end of the year to the other as cycling enjoys a boom in Britain.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
