Wiggle Haywards Heath Howler

Now in its seventh year, the Wiggle Haywards Heath Howler has gained a reputation as being one of the Super Series’ toughest events on the calendar, making it a haven for cyclists in the South of England and beyond for one great test. Thankfully there are three routes to choose from, so if you find high elevations a little daunting, opt to cycle the short route. You won't be disappointed.

Starting off from the South of England Showground, the first challenge that presents itself to riders is in Turners Hill. From here it’s relatively easy going until you come to the climbs around Balcombe and Ardingly, and lets not forget the infamous Ditchling Beacon, which is a firm favourite with many cyclists. Once you reach the top you get to enjoy the fast descent straight back down again, before heading back out into Sussex.

The terrain relaxes henceforth, giving you a chance to keep up a nice pace, before heading into Ashdown Forest, which is fast, beautiful and challenging. Don't let up around Weir Wood Reservoir as you'll need to give it one more push over steep hills before reaching the finish line.

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.

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.
