Wiggle Wye Valley Warrior

As stunning as it is challenging, the Wiggle Wye Valley Warrior sportive bridges the gap between England and Wales and gives you the best views, climbs and cycling roads of the border towns and villages of both states.

Starting out from Chepstow Racecourse, you’ll head for one of the main attractions straight away as you’ll tackle the hills of the Wye Valley first of all. Following the River Wye all the way, darting left and right as do the roads you’re sure to enjoy the ride alongside the water. Sit up and absorb the stunning cliff faces and river below before criss-crossing once more and heading into England.

Once on the English part of the course, you’ll enter the Forest of Dean soon after leaving Wales. One or two small climbs wait in the Forest’s sheltered and remote roads, but they shouldn’t make you too uncomfortable to enjoy the tranquillity and wilderness along the wooded roads.

Heading up through Ruspidge, you’ll bear left at Nailbridge and head west once more. Around Upper Lydbrook, you’ll meet the River Wye again and pass over it, although much closer inland compared to before. The winding country lanes continue, as the undulating terrain around the Welsh and English border will keep pushing you along on up-and-down sections.

Crossing the River Wye yet again, you’re back on Welsh soil and on the home straight, although there’s still time for a sizeable loop to harness the unique rolling hills in the area. The last couple of hills might smart with tired legs, but you’d expect nothing less on such a comprehensive border-crossing tour of the valleys.
