Wiggle County Durham Dynamo

The Wiggle County Durham Dynamo, now in it's second year, explores the hills and rolling roads of the southern-most countryside in County Durham. Reaching out to the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at its furthest point, the route takes in some excellent climbs and some even better views.

Heading out from the home of the Darlington Mowden Park RFC, we bear north almost immediately, taking in the villages of Piercebridge and Staindrop, at which point the Short route splits and heads south.

The route continues north, climbing up to Butterknowle, eventually splitting at Woodland village with great views out over Langleydale. The Epic riders continue north, riding the edge of Hamsterley Forest before descending in to Wolsingham.

As you leave the main road at Frosterley you are faced with a tough climb to the top of Hill End, with views out over Bollihope Common and the burn at the bottom on the descent. We ride south through Bollihope Common and pass by Middleton-in-Teesdale, before climbing out of the valley towards Barnard Castle. The final push back west stretches through a series of quaint English villages typical of the County Durham area.

At the finish you will receive a warm welcome, medal and finisher t-shirt.

Key Information

Kids Ride For 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. Valid ID will be requested on the day.

Mates rates / Group buy

A 20% discount will be applied automatically at checkout when you enter 4 (four) or more riders into a single event. This offer does not apply to the Wattbike No Excuses events, the MBR Demo Day, Brewin Dolphin Velo Club tickets and the UKCE Le Classique French Sportive. Mates Rates do not apply to any Late Entry offers.

Online pre-entry

Online pre-entry is the easiest way of entering and saves £5.00 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 £5.00 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.
