Human Race Announce 2014 Sportive Discount Bundles

by Nick Gregory

Human Race, the UK's largest organiser of mass participation sports events, has announced a set of discount bundles to celebrate the launch of their new sportive series. 

Riders can now secure a special discount on their entry fees by combining two or more events in the series. As part of the deal, entrants will also secure a spot on the priority booking list for next year's Wiggle Dragon Ride. 

The Wiggle Dragon Ride has established itself as a 'must do' sportive, with the mammoth course winding its way round the stunning roads of the Breacon Beacons and Black Mountain. The priority window opens a week before general sale, and with the event regularly selling out its 6000 places within a few hours, purchasing a Human Race sportive bundle is a great way of guaranteeing entry for 2015. 

The Wiggle Etape Cymru

Financial Times London Cycle Sportive Ambassador, Ben Swift

The Chiltern 100 Sportive on Sunday 1st June is a new addition in 2014, and both its routes take riders around the stunning grounds of Bonvingdon Airfield, Chesham. The 177km Gran Fondo (2700m of climbing) features 21 relentless hills, and the Medio Fondo (1,897m of climbing) is possibly the toughest 122km challenge around. 

Coming just three weeks before is the Financial Times London Cycle Sportive on Sunday 11th May, and riders can combine the 162km Long route (1098m of climbing), which heads up Box Hill and includes a large chunk of the route from the 2012 Olympic road race, with either of the Chiltern rides in a south-east sportive special. 

By tackling both events riders can take on some of the UK's most challenging and picturesque routes, all within a stone's throw of London so city riders can avoid travelling across the country. 

For those who want to venture further afield, either of these two events can also be combined with the Wiggle Etape Cymru on September 14th, previously voted sportive of the year. This 142km lung-busting end of season event provides one of the most challenging tests in the UK, and includes a special timed climb on the 6.1km Horseshoe Pass.

Chiltern 100 and Financial Times London Cycle Sportive: £80
Chiltern 100 and Wiggle Etape Cymru: £95
