Wildside Cycles of Tunbridge Wells has generously donated the Specialized Allez, which features an A1 aluminium frame, carbon/alloy fork and Shimano 8-speed groupset.
The Circuit of Kent is one of the longest running cyclo-sportives on the British calendar, and this year's ride will be its 14th edition.
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 most 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.
The vast majority of the 1,000 available places have now been filled, but you can currently still enter via the event's website. Registration costs £30, and can either be done on the official website or by contacting event organiser Sevenoaks Amherst Rotary Club via
email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone: 01959 522148.
Profits go to several charities, including Hospice in the Weald and Macmillan Cancer Support.

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.
