Wiggle Hellfire Corner

With the name of this Kent sportive originating from the surrounding area’s involvement in World War II – with parts of the route exposed to enemy fire from the sea and the skies – you can expect to put in an honourable shift on the bike in this end-of-season sportive.

As you set off from Folkestone Racecourse, you’ll notice war-related relics dotted about throughout the entirety of the ride. You’ll also notice how flat the first couple of hours of the day are, as you’ll plunge downhill after the first five miles onto a huge, level plateau that links New Romney to Lydd, Rye and Applesede out near the windy coast and Dungeness power station– before heading in-land, where your climbing legs will really be put to the test.

After 30-odd miles of flat and quiet country lanes, the course heads towards Tenterden, where the going starts to get tough. The climbs are short and sharp, proving enough of a test having just enjoyed some of the flattest roads in the region.

Looping around picturesque villages St Michaels, High Halden and Woodchurch, you’ll have chance to catch your breath from your time riding through the country lanes as the ride soon heads back towards its south Kent start point. The roads stay remote and the gradients will work in your favour near the end as you can choose to push for a strong finish or roll in on a relaxed note.

This is a sportive of two halves and you’re sure to enjoy the historical sights in the area.

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.
