Wiggle Cornwall Tor 2012
29/04/2012 - Bodmin, Cornwall - Sportive
It's Cornwall's biggest sportive challenge! - With nearly 1,000 riders last year, the Wiggle Cornwall Tor is becoming one of the most popular sportive challenges in the UK. For 2012 we've got a new large capacity HQ in the parklands of National Trust Lanhydrock. There's lots to do there for all the family too.
Why you must ride 'The Tor'! - Quite simply, it's one of the most spectacular and challenging rides you can experience enjoying some of Europe's most stunning coastal scenery. Highly rated by past 'Tor veterens' who consistently tell us it's the best cycling challenge on the calendar. 'The Tor' combines the organisation skills and resources of Kilo To Go and Cornwall Council, coupled with stunningly beautiful cycling terrain. For the 5th Cornwall Tor we're delighted to welcome Wiggle as our primary partner again - the UK's official number 1 online bike retailer. By riding Wiggle Cornwall Tor you are also helping us to raise awareness and create sponsorship opportunities for our 2012 charity partner, Cancer Research UK. Cancer Research UK are the worlds leading cancer charity.
Do stay over - Cornwall is one of Britain's top holiday destinations and ready to accommodate your stay with an abundance of charming hotels, guest houses and B&Bs to suit all groups and budgets. What's more The Tor takes place out of season and that means lower prices - as well as quiet roads. Why not make a weekend of it? There's so much to see and do for all the family in Cornwall.
Camping - At the Tor we've got our own superior/licensed camping facilities at the Dragon Centre, just over a mile from the start line, provided by Cornwall Council exclusively for the use of Tor riders and their entourages. You have the opportunity to buy discounted camping permits for Saturday only, or Saturday and Friday nights as you go through the online entry process for the Tor - or buy from our shop later. We have flat pitches for motorhomes, caravans or tents with high quality facilities on site including a licensed restaurant serving food from breakfast 'til tea time. Terms and conditions apply.
