Wiggle Wight Ferry

The Sell-out Wight Ferry Sportive returns for its fourth year this year. This sportive offers an ultimate day of riding packed full of unique experiences, breath-taking vistas and stunning scenery.

With 2 ferry crossings, 2 stunning sections in the New Forest National Park, a circumnavigation of the Isle of Wight and finally topped off with an ice cream to celebrate your ride at the finish!

There are two route options to choose from: the Epic 100 mile route and the Standard 75 mile route. Both routes do a lap of the Isle of Wight but the Standard route has a shorter New Forest section. If you only want to cycle the island route then take a look at the Wiggle All Wight Sportive that takes place on the same days. The event kicks off in the iconic New Forest National Park from Gang Warily Recreation Centre.

Riders will set off on the first leg of the sportive which sweeps south through the flattish forest allowing legs to warm up. It passes through picturesque villages before arriving at Lymington ferry terminal, where riders report to a timing station. Here, the timers will be stopped and riders will have plenty of time to take on some food. Riders will board the next ferry, cross the Solent and arrive on the Isle of Wight. Individual ride times will start again for the 2nd part of the sportive around the sensational Isle of Wight. The route will head clockwise around the island and stay on quiet roads.

The island section is the hilliest of the 3 sections; the route passes over the central downs on the island before returning via the southern coastal roads with their amazing coastline vistas! Back at Yarmouth, the timers will be stopped again while riders enjoy an ice cream and wait for the next ferry back to the mainland. The final leg takes place back in the flatter New Forest National Park. Riders will enjoy this area of outstanding natural beauty one more time before they cross the finish line at Gang Warily Recreation Centre.

A finishers’ medal, massages, food and entertainment will be waiting for all riders. Note – Ferry ticket includes foot passenger and bike on the day of the event only.

We ask all riders to read and observe the New Forest Cycling Code: www.newforestnpa.gov.uk/cycling-code

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.

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!
