Wiggle Wye Valley Warrior

As stunning as it is challenging, the Wiggle Wye Valley Warrior sportive bridges the gap between England and Wales and gives you the best views, climbs and cycling roads of the border towns and villages of both states.

Please note that the routes for this event are currently being plotted, with the addition of a Black 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.

Starting out from Chepstow Racecourse, you’ll head for one of the main attractions straight away as you’ll tackle the hills of the Wye Valley first of all. Following the River Wye all the way, darting left and right as do the roads you’re sure to enjoy the ride alongside the water. Sit up and absorb the stunning cliff faces and river below before criss-crossing once more and heading into England.

Once on the English part of the course, you’ll enter the Forest of Dean soon after leaving Wales. One or two small climbs wait in the Forest’s sheltered and remote roads, but they shouldn’t make you too uncomfortable to enjoy the tranquillity and wilderness along the wooded roads.

Heading up through Ruspidge, you’ll bear left at Nailbridge and head west once more. Around Upper Lydbrook, you’ll meet the River Wye again and pass over it, although much closer inland compared to before. The winding country lanes continue, as the undulating terrain around the Welsh and English border will keep pushing you along on up-and-down sections.

Crossing the River Wye yet again, you’re back on Welsh soil and on the home straight, although there’s still time for a sizeable loop to harness the unique rolling hills in the area. The last couple of hills might smart with tired legs, but you’d expect nothing less on such a comprehensive border-crossing tour of the valleys.

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 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.
