Wiggle Northern Angel

You’ll be glad to have some kind of angel watching over you in the Wiggle Northern Angel sportive, such is the nature of the remote, sprawling Northumberland National Park roads, twinned with a host of steep and testing climbs. The route doesn’t forget civilisation altogether though and the Angel of the North will check in for a glimpse of your progress every now and again, making up one of a number of excellent sights on this route.

Starting out in Kirkley, just outside Newcastle-upon-Tyne, you’ll head north-west as you continue on the path to get as north as north gets. The scenic villages of Walton and Rothley play prelude to your adventure in the Northumberland National Park, where most of the day’s route is based.

Undulating terrain won’t be easy to get used to as you’ll be in and out of your saddle on short and punchy climbs staged on back roads in the Park area. The first challenge of the day could have your legs pleading for mercy on one of the course’s most northern points, as a major climb awaits just after Burradon. Get this out of the way, though, and you’re free of challenging ascents for another 15 miles – the following roads are a formality until you reach Elsdon, a short but steep hill.

Climbing challenges will come and go and soon after Elsdon you’ll reach the highest part of the course in the approach to Bellingham. One more serious climb waits for riders on the way back, around Ridsdale, as you’ll head back towards ride HQ with a big sense of satisfaction from your testing day in the ever-impressive National Park.

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.
