The 92-mile route is once again taking place on closed roads, offering participants an unparalleled experience of riding in this spectacular area with full use of the course. Starting and finishing in Wrexham, the Wiggle Etape Cymru features some truly testing terrain, making it into one of the most challenging events on the sportive calendar.

The 10th edition of the legendary Wiggle Dragon Ride, which has sold out every year since its inception, takes place on Sunday 9th June 2013. The event will start once again from the picturesque Margam Park and includes two challenging route options, the Gran Fondo (206km) and the Medio Fondo (125km). An exciting addition to the event this year is the inclusion of a women-only Cycletta, which will replace the previous Corto distance.
