Wiggle The Long One

It’s just as well that this sportive is held in June – it might take you until the end of summer to finish the exhausting route. Take heed in the name of The Long One, which is self-explanatory – if you’re up for a mega-mile haul then this is for you. If you aren’t, then get training, as crossing the finish line after 125 miles in the saddle will give you the glory of a pro finishing a grand tour stage.

Not for the faint-hearted, The Long One will show you the best of what West Sussex and Hampshire have to offer – and then both the North and South Downs, the course is so long. Nine major climbs and five other significant ascents will come before you as this mega-mile epic unfolds, giving this the potential to be your crowning glory of the season’s riding success.

The route kicks off on the most south-eastern part of the map, as you’ll head out to explore west, north, south… east… and pretty much any other direction we can take you that will make for a long but rewarding day of riding. Starting just outside of Chichester, the route passes Cocking, flirts with Midhurst and almost kisses Liphook, skirting under Petersfield before heading north once more in order to cover the whopping amount of miles this will take you.

A High Cross feed stop signifies the highest north this will take you, before looping back – though at this point, you’re still not even half way through. Small villages such as Kilmeston, Warnford and Brockbridge will soon blur into one as you count down the miles until the finish line.

Crossing over the top of Portsmouth, then Chichester, it’s smooth sailing back to base camp. After a mega day of riding, you’ll need those last few miles to be as straightforward as possible!
