Circuit of Kent sportive

Completed this sportive today - all 126k of it and what a joy. Excellent organisation, great marshalling, great signs and good food at the end. The route took us through beautiful country lanes and was nicely undulating until the final climb, which was a bit horrible !

The reason for the post though is that I have never been on an organised event with so many 'wheel suckers'. No pleasantries, no 'do you mind if I sit on for a while' not even a hello. We pulled in several times and forced them to go ahead on their own but it really pisses me off when people do this.

Still, it didn't ruin what was an excellent day.

  • It wasnt me, I was dragging my own peloton of suckers around. Very nice event though and for a good cause.

    Why not just ask if they want to take some turns on the front?
