Wiggle Mega Meon

If ever there was a perfect setting for a sunny sportive to unfold on a weekend’s morning, the Meon Valley would be up there with the best. Its tree-sheltered darting country lanes, forest backdrops, field-side rolling roads and spectacular views across to the Solent, Spinnaker Tower and Isle of Wight make this one not to miss.

Its valley setting will provide enough hills to keep you on your toes, too, as any kind of sharp and testing climb could wait around any corner. With excellent views and punchy climbs thrown in with swooping terrain, this a fine all-round sportive that will take your breath away – in more ways than one.

As you set off from the ride’s base, you’ll notice that the more miles you cover, the further away you get from towns and civilisation as the route will guide you through the best of the Hampshire countryside, occasionally flitting across to West Sussex. Ambling out into the open, you’ll be led over the A3 and into the wilderness as you head through the back lanes and up towards Petersfield.

Checking past East Meon, you’ll have to slog it out on a series of drawn-out climbs before hitting a descent sweet-spot around Warnford, which gives around a mile of fast downhill action. Continuing to head north, the hills around the Upper Weald area may pose problems for tired legs, yet there’s still some distance to go.

Heading through Northington, Tichborne and Cheriton, what should be the penultimate climbing challenge comes with around 15 miles to go. From then on, it’s an uphill finish – drawn out over just under two miles – but you’ll soon be over the finish line to bask in the glory of having finished a tough but enjoyable route.

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
