Wiggle Royal Flyer

04/11/2018 - Norfolk - Sportive

Rating: Rate this Event Now

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.

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 on the Wiggle Royal Flyer 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.
