Wiggle Le Tricolore

The Wiggle Le Tricolore Sportive, previously known as the French Resistance, is one of our fastest selling Sportives of the year. Bag a place on this ride as soon as you can for one of the best cross-border cycling day trips there is.

We’ll meet in Dover, and you’ll get your rider number on board the ferry, but you won’t actually start pedalling until we disembark on the other side of the English Channel. Its brother events aside, this is a truly unique event that can give you a day-long taster of life riding a sportive event in cycling-obsessed France.

Heading out from Calais, you’ll follow a slightly different route to the Revolution event. Following the coast line westwards, the route dips in-land before getting to the wind-exposed roads that follow – while you’ll maintain a vantage point that allows views long across the busy Channel.

A series of quaint, quintessentially French small communes are passed and in between them lie a series of short and punchy climbs, joined by small and narrow back lanes that rarely accommodate a car. You’d be unfortunate to have to slow down for car traffic and when you do, you’ll likely receive welcome encouragement from French drivers – ‘allez’!

Following a clockwise route around the north-eastern area of France, the forested rural areas are bound to charm you as you edge closer back to the coastline. Eventually you’ll notice a pick-up in headwind and rise in gradient, meaning the coast roads are coming. The major climb of the day in Escalles waits right near the end. It’s tough but manageable – and then you can sprint on the flat roads towards the international port. We’ll get you on the next available ferry home for a well-deserved verre du vin.

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 2015 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!

Ferry tickets can only be used on the day of the event on scheduled ferries and not used on any other day.

All riders MUST get back to the Port of Calais in time to catch the 5:15pm Ferry.

Ticket price includes the ferry crossings.

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 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.
