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.
