New Season, New Kit and New Rules for Kilo to Go Sportives

by Nick Gregory

Kilo to Go have teamed up with dhb to bring you high quality cycling apparel made from the very best, cutting-edge technical fabrics. Not only does it look great, but it performs well too - whether you're scorching in the Sierra Nevada or being rained on in Reigate. 

Available now at Wiggle, there are two choices of jersey: The generic Kilo to Go design (Female and male fit), and the very first Wiggle Cheshire Cat jersey. Riders can complete the look with matching Kilo to Go bib shorts

The jerseys are made from a lightweight polyester wicking fabric and include features such as open eyelet fabric on the back panel for improved breathability, anti-bacterial control fabric, 3 vertical drop pockets and a silicone hem. 

The bib shorts incorporate a high performance Cytech Endurance Seatpad, as used in the Wiggle Honda Team kits, as well as an Italian Action 205 lycra fabric construction. This high performance gear is designed to help you perform at your best.

Kilo to Go have recently announced a few more reasons why you might want to ride with them in 2014:

  • Like most of us, you probably hate standing in queues, so by using Kilo to Go's online registration, you'll get your 'Ticket to Ride' pack sent to you before the big day meaning all you need to do is turn up and ride.
  • On-route support is second to none - not just first aiders, but also fully trained paramedics too. 
  • Great goody bags, finish line videos, rider photography, pro-commentators, and food concessions make Kilo to Go events even more enjoyable. 

Having searched the market place for better, more suitable insurance policies, Kilo to Go have also been able to make some great changes to their Terms & Conditions and Event Rules. Amongst other highlights, there is now no age restriction to ride these events and you can keep your tri-bars fitted. For safety reasons, it is now compulsory to wear approved helmets.

There really is something for everyone at a Kilo to Go event; climbers can challenge themselves on some of Britain's toughest, including closed road climbs up the famous Mow Cop Killer Mile and Winnat's Pass. Soon to feature in Tour de France, Holme Moss will also play a key part in the Wiggle Tour of the Peak, and the Long Mynd, Long Mountain and Kerry Hill climbs will prove testing for anyone taking on the Wiggle Shropshire Mynd. 

If you don't fancy hills, Wiggle Flatout in the Fens offers Europe's flattest sportive with route options of 152, 112 and 77 miles. Perfect for triathletes and just before IronMan UK. 

When it comes to sportives, the Kilo to Go 2014 portfolio covers Cheshire, Mercia, Cornwall, Peak District, Essex, The Fens, Shropshire and Rutland. Each event presents a different challenge, but offers the same level of pin-sharp organisation.
