Wiggle Purbeck Hill-a-Saurus MTB

As the name of this sportive suggests, it’s all about hills on this ride-out – as you’ll take in the best of them atop the chalky cliffs of the historic Jurassic Coast in Dorset. If you’ve got what it takes to beat the Wiggle Purbeck Hill-a-Saurus, line up for a mix of challenging climbs, fast-flowing technical single track and swooping descents.

As you head out of the start point in Wareham, just on the outskirts of Swanage, the first few miles will be uphill but you’ll soon be rewarded with a pleasing run of drops while you head out towards the sea. This sets the tone of the course, as an up-and-down route that is just as rewarding as it is challenging for a test of gradient.

Cresting the top of the Ballard Down hillside, you’ll get right up and close to the Jurassic Coast before entering Studland, riding on top of the ridged shore, until it’s time to stop at the first feed station of the day. From here, you’ll head inland briefly while taking in forest and woodland trails with the sea still in sight.

You’ll cross points of the old and historic Swanage Railway while you continue through the rolling Dorset countryside – reaching the same hillside section of the Purbeck Heritage Coast as was ridden earlier while you complete the geographical circular loop of the area, soon passing Corfe Castle and then heading back out to the Wareham start and finish point.

It’s a tough ride, but you’re bound to savour the technical drops as much as you might lament the tricky climbs – all topped off with the magnificent views along the way.

The National Trust

The National Trust is a UK conservation charity, protecting some of the most important spaces and places in the UK and then opening them up for ever, for everyone.

With our help, they continue to protect many areas from historic houses, to coastlines to forests. When you ride the Wiggle Purbeck Hall-a-Saurus you will notice a number of areas where the route is clearly defined, it is essential to keep to the marked course to prevent damage to the special flora and fauna of this unique area.

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
