Kilo To Go: Looking Ahead To Autumn

by Adam Tranter

The well-known and well-respected Kilo To Go events still have some more surprises in store for the end of summer running into autumn.

With all the success from Team Sky on the road at the Tour de France with Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome it has been a great year for cycling in the UK. Chris Hoy, Laura Trott, Victoria Pendleton and all the other Team GB have shown what pounding the roads and tracks of the UK can do you to prepare you for greatness.

2012 Still Has Some Great Challenges

Kilo To Go have a calendar of rides that may not give you superstardom in the shape of Olympic Golds or pulling on the Yellow Jersey in Paris but they will give you a good day out on the bicycle. Kilo To Go has rides for all abilities with all the features associated with any good cyclosportive. The sun has finally been gracing our British Islands so this is the best opportunity to get out and see some of the green and pleasant land.

Entries are open for the brand new Lancashire Hotpot on 16th September. The Lancashire Hotpot is an all-new event, taking a traditional route out from Blackpool and into the hills. Kilo To Go say that if participants enter before the end of Wednesday 8th August then they will be entered for the prize draw to win £200 worth of High5 sports nutrition products.


Holly Bleasdale who narrowly missed out on an Olympic Medal in Pole Vault has been a recipient of the Rising Star Fund. They are partner to the Lancashire Hotpot sportive. The Rising Star fund provides financial support to enable young sportsmen and women to continue achieving in their chosen sport. For every entrant to the sportive, £1 will be donated to the bursary fund.


There is also the Wiggle White Peak on 30th September - the tamer partner event to the notorious springtime Wiggle Tour of the Peak. Moving from the White Peak and onto the Wiggle Rut, which closes the sportive season and British summertime on Saturday 27th October.
