If ever there was a perfect setting for a sunny weekend Sportive to unfold, the Meon Valley would be up there with the best. Its tree-sheltered darting country lanes, forest backdrops, field-side rolling roads and spectacular views across to the Solent, Spinnaker Tower and the Isle of Wight make the Wiggle Mega Meon a Sportive not to miss.

Its valley setting provides enough hills to keep you on your toes and offers excellent views, punchy climbs and swooping terrain. This is a fine all-round sportive that will take your breath away.

As you set off from the ride’s base, you’ll notice that the more miles you cover, the further away you get from towns and civilisation as the route will guide you through the best of the Hampshire countryside, occasionally flitting across to West Sussex. Ambling out into the open, you’ll be led over the A3 and into the wilderness as you head through the back lanes and up towards Petersfield.

Passing below East Meon, you’ll have to slog it out on a series of climbs, including Old Winchester Hill, before hitting a descent sweet-spot around Warnford. Continuing to head north, the hills around the Upper Weald will get most KOM segment seekers out of the saddle.

Heading through Northington, Tichborne and Cheriton, the penultimate climbing challenge comes with around 15 miles to go. From then on, it’s an uphill finish – lasting just under two miles – but you’ll soon be over the finish line to bask in the glory of having finished a tough but enjoyable route.

With three routes to choose from, the Wiggle Mega Meon will suit most cycling abilities - those who relish in longer mileage rides and spending a whole day in the saddle will certainly want to aim for the Epic route, but for those who are a little shy around big elevation gains can opt for the shorter Standard and Short routes.

Times and 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 our results page. 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.
