Wiggle Royal Flyer

As the light draws in and the evenings get shorter, you’ll want to get out on the bike when you can. The Wiggle Royal Flyer is the perfect autumn sportive – taking in the Royal Sandringham Estate in Norfolk and the tree-lined avenues around it, allowing you to charge through the autumnal leaves on the ground before crossing the finish line for a well-earned end-of-season break.

Please note that the routes for this event are currently being plotted, with the addition of a short route for 2017. The distances advertised are what we are aiming to achieve but they may vary by a couple of miles. We will announce via our newsletter (sign up at the foot of this page), Facebook and Twitter when the new routes are live.

Setting off from the event centre on Fakenham Racecourse, this sportive starts off with a few gentle climbs as riders will head east and roll through the pretty villages of Guist and Hindrigham, and onto the equally-appealing St Marys Benedictine Priory and Binham.

Staying inland, you’ll continue westwards on this typically flat section of east England – heading through South Creake, Stanhoe and Docking. A feed station gives riders chance to catch their breath before the route enters the grounds of the Sandringham Estate, which always looks grand in autumnal colours.

Only a short ride then separates you from the royal grounds and a finisher’s medal back in Fakenham, passing the Royal Stud and continuing on back lanes through Anmer, East Rudham and Helhoughton. The short climbs may test untrained legs but this should be a welcome challenge for more seasoned riders to get a fast sportive time in the bag before turning to the turbo for winter.

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.
