Our very own Wiggle Le Tricolore Sportive is your chance to experience a British Sportive on French soil. Originally known as the French Resistance Sportive, the Tricolore Sportive sees riders venture from Dover over to Calais where they will go on a journey of discovery around Northern France before returning at the end of the day to ol’ Blighty.
Filled with history from both cycling’s eclectic past or the horrors of war, the routes takes in the Parc Naturel Regional des Caps et Marais d’Opale, the northern most natural park in all of France. Here riders will spend the majority of the day as they tackle up to 4294ft of climbing and 75miles of riding, along the huge coastal cliffs that mirror those in Dover. There will be no shortage of scenery in this beautiful part of the world.
The biggest challenges of the day will be battling the buffeting headwinds and not being enticed to stop by the beautifully French villages that you’ll pass through.
Le Tricolore isn’t our only cycling event in France. We also host the ever-popular Wiggle French Revolution Sportive and our own Le Classique Sportive – both of which promise fantastic scenery, challenging climbs and a great day in the saddle.
