Organisers of the third annual Cobble Wobble in Frome, Somerset, warned that the event would sell out in double-quick time when registration went live on its website last week, and so it proved – so now, they’ve made a very limited number of additional places available for the event on Sunday 25 September.
Again, you’d better be ultra-quick though – the Cobble Wobble website will be open for registration at 8pm sharp this evening, and organisers add that you must wait for the payment screen to load after submitting the form, since only complete entries (including payment) will be processed.
Meanwhile, Cobble Wobble organisers have teamed up with cycle clothing designers Milltag to launch a custom jersey for the event. Costing £70, it can be ordered from the Milltag website.
Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
