Specialized road bike up for grabs in Circuit of Kent

Specialized Allez 27 Circuit of Kent

Anyone entering the 2009 Circuit of Kent Cyclo-Sportive will automatically be entered in a prize draw for a Specialized Allez 27 road bike, worth £600.

The lucky winner, announced at the end of the event, will be able to take the bike away with them on the day.

The Circuit of Kent has quickly established itself as one of the premier challenge rides in the south east. Two routes are offered around the picturesque Kent countryside: 80km and 140km. Both rides start and finish in Sevenoaks and are run on quiet roads, fully signed and marshalled.

This year's Circuit if Kent takes place on Sunday, September 13 and includes the event's usual extensive support for participants - including the legendary post-ride evening meal. "We make sure no one goes home hungry," organiser Derek Williams told CW.

Places on the ride are restricted to just 750 riders, and early entry is advised. You can register for a ride via the event's website. Registration costs £30.

Last year, the Circuit of Kent - organised by the Rotary Club of Sevenoaks Amherst - raised a stunning £36,000 for charity. This year, proceeds go to Hospice in the Weald and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

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, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
