Sportive organiser Kilo to Go offers free to enter 'Ride-Outs'


In celebration of what is expected to be an important period ahead in recent British cycling history, organisers Kilo To GO launch free to enter cycling events.

‘Ride-Out with Kilo TO Go’ as the strap line suggests, encourages people to take part in an organised bike ride with like-minded cyclists, Ride-Out organisers and invited celebrity/special guests.

Geoff Saxon of Kilo To Go explains “Ride-Outs enable us to deliver something straight back to cycling. It’s another way of helping get Britain on its bike. Maybe it’s your first organised bike ride – perhaps for riders who are looking for something less formal and shorter in distance than a sportive. There’s also an opportunity to have a chat along the way, or after, with....who knows....? Several cycling celebrities have already expressed an interest in joining us on our Ride-Outs”.

The Ride-Out organisers say that free to enter doesn’t mean safety corners have been cut. Ride-Outs are strictly limited to 100 entries and although not full blown multi-thousand rider sportive rides all Ride-Outs are run in line within the guidelines of British Cycling with routes being risk assessed and carefully planned. Each Ride-Out has a ‘suitability flavour’ of beginner, club or reliability – indicating the planned pace of the ride. First Ride-Out is at Bodmin in Cornwall, Sunday 4th December. Riders do need to register with Kilo To Go and enter in advance (free). Details at

Along with the first Ride-Out in Cornwall, 4 more Ride-Outs take place before June - in Leicestershire, Shropshire, Cambridgeshire and The West Midlands. More Ride-Outs are being planned for later in 2012
