With a mixture of spectacular views, leg-pumping climbs and historical scenery, the Wiggle Jurassic Beast Sportive has become a ‘must do’ ride for many cyclists and one of the most popular events in our sportive calendar.
Starting out at the National Tank Museum in Bovingdon, Epic riders split straight away as the route heads north and up through a series of unspoilt Dorset villages, skirting around the base of menacing-looking hills in the region, throwing in a short and sharp climb every now and again – while you’ll pass the first after mile 10 just past Milton Abbas.
Continuing on, the next spike in gradient will follow just a few miles later, just before Shillingstone, followed by another as you head towards Ansty Cross.
Pushing on through Dorset, you’ll continue to ride through the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and tackle another series of short and steep climbs.
Soon enough, it’s time to head towards the coast and take in the terrific views of Corfe Castle, Lulworth Cove and Poole Harbour that the Jurassic Beast sportive is renowned for. Views stretch out towards the Isle of Wight and make up for the up-and-down nature of the final few miles. Don’t miss this Sportive – it’s a ride worth taking.

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 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.
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.
SportivePhoto will be taking pictures of all riders at this event. Please visit www.sportivephoto.com once you have taken part in the event to view your photos!
