Guide to Wiggle Events

How do I select the most appropriate event for my ability and requirements?
Before you enter, take a moment to think about what you want from the event. Do you want a challenge where you can push yourself? Or do you want to spend the day at a more leisurely pace? Once you’ve established this, you need to be honest with yourself about your current ability level: what’s your current training? What distances and terrains are you experienced in? Although it’s fantastic to push yourself and achieve new goals, it’s also extremely important that you don’t leave yourself vulnerable to injury and exhaustion. Once you’ve done a few events, you’ll have a better idea of what to expect and will be able to push ahead throughout the season!

Why should I take part in an event?
Entering an event is a great way to set a goal and a focus. Events give you something to look forward to during the working week and the entry is an incentive to make sure that you get outside in the fresh air at the weekend. Plus training for events can improve your fitness. The event day itself will leave you with the great feeling of having achieved a goal, honed skills, and met new people that share your interests.

  • Epic - The longest distance option for those up for a challenge!
  • Under 16 - Any child under the age of 16 can ride with appropriate adult supervision.

Are these events safe and is first aid provided?
Our event organisers all have a wealth of experience between them. All routes are checked, well-marked and there is always somebody that is trained in First Aid on-site. However, entrants are urged to take necessary precautions to avoid leaving themselves vulnerable to accidents and injury. For some events, there is a time limit on course completion to ensure that participants are not left out on the route.

Will there be parking available at the event start?
All Wiggle events include allocated car parking. We advise entrants to share car journeys where possible to ensure that congestion and traffic in and around the area are kept to a minimum. Parking at Sold Out events are likely to reach maximum capacity and entrants are therefore advised to arrive early to ensure that they secure a car parking space.

Do events start and finish in the same place?
Wiggle event routes are circular and start and finish at the same place. This is to make sure that it really is easy for entrants to turn up, ride and go home after a successful day out!

Are there age limits for events?
Most of the Wiggle Super Series events offer an Under 16 option. The full-length routes are designed to offer more difficult challenges. The Under 16 option is our way of offering something for everybody – regardless of age, gender or skill.

What do I need to take with me to an event?

  • Ticket - Please ensure you print out your e-ticket and take it with you to the event. You will be required to present this at registration.
  • You will need to bring a Bike to participate in Cycling Events
  • Helmet - You will be required to take your helmet with you to registration.
  • Appropriate cycling clothing
  • Cycling shoes
  • Nutrition
  • Spares for road side repairs
  • Water bottles
