The Wiggle French Revolution sportive is one of the most exciting and innovative events on the calendar. Essentially, it is a day trip to France and a sportive in one. Starting at Dover ferry port your ferry and parking are included, and you're welcomed aboard with a croissant and coffee to get you into the French spirit.

Once in Calais, the riding begins. There are two courses to choose from: Epic 70miles or Standard 54miles. Routes explore the amazing North Coast and National Park offering superb traffic free cycling on an extremely well signposted course.

The route starts and finishes with a perfectly flat 7 miles as you head along the coast road to Sangatte. Then the course becomes a little hillier as you pass the stunning Mont d'Hubert and Cap Blanc Nez, steeped in History from WWII, with forts and bombing creators clearly visible on the cliff tops.

As you pass over the Cliff top at Mont d'Hubert there are unspoiled views of the English channel and the White Cliffs of Dover.

From here the route heads inland to the enchanting and breath taking National Park 'Foret Domaniate de Guines', offering the Epic riders a quality climb up Mont d'Licques. The routes join up again and head west back to the spectacular coast line. On the run-in back towards Calais you pass Mont Duez, Mont de la Louve and pass Wissant before the last climb of the day at Mont d'Hubert.

Back at Calais Ferry port, a finishers' medal and the next ferry back to Dover await, with your sense of adventure truly satisfied.
