Fancy a ride in this weekend's New Forest Sportive? Then you'd better be quick...

Organisers of this weekend's New Forest Spring Sportive have made 50 extra places available in the sold out event… but you are going to have to be quick, really quick, you've got until 5.30 today.

To grab one of those 50 places you'll have to enter online at either www.ukcyclingevents.co.uk or www.wiggle.co.uk. If it's as good as the New Forest 100 sportive which we rode last year it should be a cracker. Good luck.

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
