Wiggle Steeple Chase

The Wiggle Steeple Chase sportive gets its name from the large amount of historic church steeples you’ll see on your way around this tranquil tour through the quiet roads of Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Leicestershire – but take a step back and look at the terrain profile and the hill-formed chart spikes will look similar to a collection of holy roof structures.

The hill climbs may not be the steepest, but enough to keep you on your toes when following one after the other. While you toil up one, and then the next, there will often be a church steeple on the horizon to reel in and race to, adding to the fun and combative element of this ride.

You’ll start off in Huntingdon, then follow the sheltered and quiet country lanes until reaching Kimbolton, where the route darts off and heads north, towards Spaldwick. The course continues to weave through small villages on the continually undulating terrain, as you can soak up the rural Roman roads. One notable straight road will have you heading in a straight line for just short of 10 miles between Pilton and Old Weston.

The loop comes back around into Cambridgeshire soon enough – try and recall how many church steeple structures you’ve spotted by now. The final canter back to the finish line is by no means straightforward – you can roll on one downhill section that will take you close to the end but a couple of upward spikes prevent an easy rollover on the final last part of the course.

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.
