Wiggle Wye Valley Warrior Sportive
01/05/2016 - Chepstow - Sportive
The Wiggle Wye Valley Warrior is as beautiful as it is challenging! Starting from the impeccable Chepstow Racecourse you'll head straight up the Wye Valley hugging the awe inspiring, majestic Wye River all the way.
Riders will zigzag the river several times soaking in the views of the sheer cliff faces and the powerful river below. Along the way you'll pass some iconic landmarks such as Tintern Abbey.
After reaching Monmouth you'll head into the Forest of Dean and experience roaming wildlife and spectacular Alpine Trees before heading back across the border into Wales and to the foothills of the imposing Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains which provide a picture postcard backdrop.
The climb to Gospel Pass will reward the Epic route riders with some of the highest pedalling of our events with views that exceed the effort! This arguably may be one of the best views of any of our Sportives. As you head back to Monmouth via Abergavenny, riders encounter a challenging climb rewarded with breath-taking views of the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains.
With three routes to choose from (Epic 102 miles, Standard 79 miles and Short 41 miles) you choose how long to do battle for...
At the finish you will receive a well-deserved medal and finishers T-Shirt. Post event refreshments and massages will also be waiting.
