Organisers of the Circuit of Kent cyclo-sportive, due to take place on Sunday September 13, have now closed entries for the event as it's full to capacity.
The ever-popular sportive based in Sevenoaks, Kent, has a start list of 820 riders - up from 750 riders last year. The Circuit of Kent was Britain's first cyclo-sportive, and is now in its 13th year.
The event is run by Sevenoaks Amherst Rotary Club to benefit several charities. Last year, the event raised in excess of £30,000 for Hospice in the Weald and Macmillan Cancer Support.
This year, that total looks likely to be smashed - a team of 35 riders from Octopus Investments in London have already signed up sponsorship of £25,000!
Two lengths of ride are available - 80km and 140km. All starters' names will be entered into a prize draw for a 2010 Specialized Allez road bike worth £600, donated by Wildside Cycles, Tunbridge Wells. The bike will be presented to the winner after the event by Cheryl Baker of eighties supergroup Bucks Fizz.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, 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, CyclingWeekly.com 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, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
