Wiggle No Excuses

You’ll have no excuses for not giving your all in this early-season sportive, as the Wiggle No Excuses ride will allow you to execute your winter training regime on a lightly undulating course that explores rural Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Northampton.

Be among the first riders of the year to ride against the clock through the quiet, tranquil lanes in the three counties, the route leads out of the Huntingdon Racecourse start, heading south-west past the Grantham Water reservoir before starting on a loop that begins in Staughton Highway.

Epic route riders then separate in Stonely, bearing north as far up as Luddington in the Brook, while Standard entrants cross the River Kym and complete a circular split that Epic riders will come to later in the day.

A handful of Roman roads make for pain-free and linear miles for large parts of the course, for those that want to churn out the distance in a respectable time. Plus challenging gradients are limited making this the ideal ride to ease you back into life in the saddle, just in time for the start of the new cycling season!

The last few miles face downhill, allowing you to empty the tank before crossing what will be the first finish line of the year for most.

The Wiggle No Excuses Sportive is no longer our charity event.

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 by SportivePhoto
