Last week’s closure of Kilo to Go resulted in thousands of riders being let down and out of pocket.
As a gesture of good will Cycling Weekly offered all those due to ride the Cornwall Tor the chance to ride for free on the Dartmoor Demon (opens in new tab) sportive, an offer welcomed by KTG customers.
This week, UK Cycling Events is going one step further by launching a NEW event to replace the KTG Tour of the Peak sportive, which was due to take place on 15 May, starting in Bakewell, Derbyshire.
In previous years the KTG Tour of the Peak event has sold out, attracting over 1,500 riders. UK Cycling Events is offering every rider who has booked a place on the 2016 event a free ride on its NEW Peaks Tour (opens in new tab) event.
If you were booked on to the Tour of the Peak, contact the UKCE booking team on Enquiries@ukcyclingevents.co.uk for your free entry. You will be asked to provide your Kilo to Go booking confirmation.
The new Peaks Tour starts from the same venue, Bakewell Showground, on the same day. It includes the famous Winnat’s Pass climb on all of its routes (Short: 37 miles, Standard: 78 miles and Epic: 102 miles), and encompasses the breathtaking beauty of the Peak District.

You can’t make an omelette without cracking eggs. The pay-off for the stunning scenery is the challenging climbs, so make no mistake, this isn’t for the faint-hearted, but you’ll savour completing this tough test for some time to come.
