Wiggle Kent Classic

New for 2017, the Wiggle Kent Classic Sportive has been designed to take you out of Surrey and into Kent for what will surely be a memorable day in the saddle.

Setting off from the village of Lingfield you will be out in the country before you know it, as all three routes head south to Wych Cross taking in the first of many quaint little villages you’ll cycle through during the ride. It is around this point, at the 7-mile mark, that you’ll tackle the first real steady climb of the day.

At Colemans Hatch, the Short route riders can relax knowing that they’ve completed the hardest part of their ride with only two steady climbs left to tackle. It’s at this point they will split off from the other routes as they head North towards Edenbridge.

Epic and Standard riders, however, go straight into the steepest climb of the day as they pass through Newbridge and make their way toward Royal Tunbridge Wells.

Shortly past Groombridge, the course divides again as the Standard riders head north with Royal Tunbridge Wells to their East. They won’t see the Epic riders again until they reach Sevenoaks, having taken in Langton Green, Penshurst and Chiddingstone, to name but a few of the villages along the route.

Epic riders continue East as they ride into the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are a few short climbs along this section of the course that might take you by surprise. Notable elevation changes occur around Goudhurst, another just past Yalding and a third at Roughway. These should serve as nice testers to get you warmed up for the final climb at Dunks Green, that ascends steadily for several miles before peaking at Sevenoaks Common. It is here that you’ll embark on a nice descent before re-joining the Standard riders once again. From here, it’s a 14-mile ride back to Lingfield, via the village of Edenbridge, with no major challenges looming.

With three routes to choose from, The Wiggle Kent Classic Sportive has something to offer cyclists of all abilities, whether you’re a beginner or someone that likes a bit of a challenge - all the while soaking in some of the best countryside Britain has to offer. After all, Kent is called The Garden of England for a reason.

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.
