Wiggle Haywards Heath Howler

The clue is in the name of the Wiggle Haywards Heath Howler – by the end of it, you’ll join other riders in howling with joy for finishing the hill-heavy ride, as well as making wolf-like noises owing to the pain in your legs. It’s a tough one, as you take in the worst of what Sussex can throw at you – but the sheer scale of climbing distance you’ll cover makes this as rewarding as it is tricky.

Now in its sixth year, the Howler is fast gaining a reputation as one of the Super Series’ toughest events on the calendar, making it a haven for cyclists in the south of England and beyond for one great test.

More than 2,500m of climbing pay dividends to this ride’s fierce and revered reputation as it takes in the most notorious ascents in the area. Starting off from the South of England Showground, the first challenge that presents itself to riders is in Turners Hill, but there’s much more testing challenges to come.

It’s relatively easy going from there until you hit testing reservoir climbs around Balcombe and Ardingly – and then the route takes no mercy by leading up the infamous Ditchling Beacon – only to come straight back down again and head back out into Sussex.

The terrain relaxes henceforth, as you can take stock of the distance in your legs, before heading into Ashdown Forest, which is as intense and fast as it is a challenge to conquer. The devil waits for riders around Weir Wood Reservoir – but one more push over seriously steep hills will take you over the finish line.

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.

Event photography by SportivePhoto
