Wiggle Hellfire Corner

The name for this Sportive comes from WW2 when this Southern part of Kent was within range of the Axis Air Force and guns. It had a tough time so you can also expect a challenging late season ride too!

The event is based from Folkestone Racecourse, just a stone’s throw from the M20 and with good facilities and with easy access to quiet roads it is an ideal starting point to explore this area which is dotted with WW2 relics.

There are 3 routes to choose from, Epic 82 miles, Standard 54 miles and Short 24 miles, all configured with the late season date in mind.

The route has two very distinct parts, the first section is out through the quiet, flat lanes of this area where the Short riders split at Newchurch and head north to rejoin the main route at Ruckinge before a slightly more energetic section to finish with.

The Epic and Standard riders carry on around the Kent coast to experience the shifting pebbles and emptiness of the Romney Marshes and the golden sands of Camber before skirting the historic Cinque Port of Rye.

Now heading north to Appledore following the old Military Canal, where the Standard riders split to rejoin the main route at Kenardington, the terrain becomes a bit more testing with a long climb up to Tenterdon before heading further north exploring the lanes and villages which abound in this area. Keep an eye out for Oasthouses and windmills too.

Once through the village of Hamstreet all routes head north again with a steady climb up to Stone Cross before heading back to the venue where medals, refreshments and massages await all.

A great late season event around an area that is packed full of history.

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 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.

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

www.sportivephoto.com will be taking pictures of all riders at this event. Please visit www.sportivephoto.com once you have taken part in the event to view your photos!
