Wiggle French Resistance

The Wiggle French Resistance sportive is the most exciting and innovative sportive in 2015, without fail.

Essentially it is a day trip to France and a Sportive in one. Starting at Dover ferry port we will arrange your ferry and parking (included). We will get you on the Ferry then welcome you with a coffee and croissant to get you ready into the French spirit. Registration and the safety briefing will take place whilst we cross the channel in Luxury. An hour and half later we will have docked in Calais and the riding begins.

There are two courses to choose from, Epic 72 miles or Standard 62 miles. Routes will explore the amazing North Coast and National Park, offering superb traffic free cycling on an extremely well signposted course. This course differs from the already sold out Wiggle French Revolution, although based in the same area this route is slightly hillier and has several high quality climbs to get the legs pumping!

The route starts with a perfectly flat 7 miles as you head along the coast road to Sangatte. Then the course becomes a little hillier as it heads inland to the enchanting and breath-taking National Park ‘Parc Naturel Regional Des Caps et Marsia D'Opale'. Here the route splits after the first feedstation with the Epic course heading out for an extra 10 miles which includes 2 additional quality climbs.

The route then joins up again and heads West back to the Spectacular coastline. Now heading North back towards Calais you will pass Mont Duez, Mont de la Louve and Wissant before the last climb of the day at Mont d’Hubert. The stunning Mont d’Hubert and Cap Blanc Nez is steeped in History from WWII showcasing forts and bombing creators clearly visible on the cliff tops. As you pass over the Cliff top at Mont d’Hubert you will have unspoiled views of the English channel and the White cliffs of Dover. You will then have a perfectly flat 7 miles run into the Finish which will be at Calais Ferry port itself. A finishers’ medal will be given to you before you board the next ferry back to Dover with your sense of adventure and exploring spirit fulfilled. Hot food and showers will be available on the Ferry.

Note: Riders must have a valid passport and travel insurance. Sorry but no Under 16s for this ride.

The event is limited to 800 riders. The 2014 Wiggle French Revolution sportive sold out in just 10 days, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Please be aware that due to ferry times, it will be an early start in Dover however you have time to relax on the ferry with a cup of tea and croissant!

Key Information

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 collection point' and avoid having to queue up. Please note: if a 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.


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.

Event photography
