Wiggle Bitter Beast

Can you tame the Beast? A late-season test, the Wiggle Bitter Beast is the brother event to the Jurassic Beast sportive, which takes place earlier in the year on the same stretch of breath taking Dorset heritage coastline. In colder autumnal conditions, this is a different battle altogether, though, and it’ll take all you’ve got to triumph…

Even if you’ve already taken on the Jurassic Beast, this ride is another to put on the calendar as it explores areas of the Purbeck District and beyond that its brother event does not venture into. Still staying true to the stunning historic coast, you’ll climb different hills and take in different views as you battle away the miles against a sea-lined backdrop.

Starting out at the National Tank Museum, you’ll head north on a series of carefully picked rolling roads that aren’t especially steep or testing but will keep you on your toes, ready for some more serious climbing later on. A long in-land loop ensues as you’ll soon pass through Crossways before heading out to the coast, which promises magnificent views at any time of year.

With the beautiful coast and excellent views come great climbs, as you’ll start to notice how soon steep climbs follow one another around now, the first unfolding around the Lulworth Camp area on the sea. Briefly heading away from the coast, the sea will stay in view as you continue on the route, preparing for the first major climb of the day as you’ll need to toil to get into the village of Steeple.

The heritage coastline will stay in sight as you head towards Swanage on one final loop before you head back for the final few miles to receive a finisher’s medal, t-shirt and well deserved PowerBar recovery product.

Key Information

Kids ride Free!

We want to encourage young riders to enjoy the pleasure of cycling. That's why all riders under 16 years ride for free when accompanied by a paying adult!

Online pre-entry

Online pre-entry is the easiest way of entering and saves £3.00 per person vs. entering on the day. Online pre-entry will save you time on the day of the event allowing you to simply pick up your registration pack from the Pre entered registration points. Please note: If an event reaches its capacity we will have to close the event to riders wanting to enter on the day. It is therefore best to pre enter online to avoid disappointment!

On the day entry

On the day entries are available at all our events as long as the event has not sold out prior to the event day. On the day entries are subject to an additional £3.00 per person surcharge. Payment can be made with cash or cheque. You can fill out an entry form when you arrive at the event. One entry form must be completed per person. Wiggle Customers will not be able to receive any loyalty discounts on the day.

Awards

Although all our rides are non competitive events (i.e. not races), most people still like to know how well they've done. With this in mind we will time each participants ride. When you complete your ride your time will be calculated and these timings, along with the timing Award you achieved, will be displayed on the Website. Each rider will receive a timing award of either; bronze, silver or gold, depending on their average speed. Of course, some riders aren't bothered about all these awards and just cycle for the experience and stunning scenery.
