Previous Years Rating: 90.2% based on 21 reviews

The Wiggle Cornwall Tor is recognised as one of the best sportive challenges in the UK; but the first thing we want to tell you is that in spring we're quietly tucked away in this beautifully mild and peaceful bottom left corner of Britain. If you ever thought that meant it's difficult to get to think again. The A30 trunk roads whafts you to within minutes of the HQ. Astonishingly Bodmin is far quicker and easier to get to from Bristol, London, Birmingham etc than some other 'up-country' parts of the western peninsular - we're less than an hour from the M5 in fact. The Tor's got one of the most picturesque sportive routes in the UK, arguably Europe. If you've never ridden The Tor it's a gem of a sportive challenge as any of the 1,000's of Tor veterens will tell you. Read on:

What they said
"I never knew Cornwall was so beautiful - or hilly for that matter. Some of the coastal views literally take your breath away. Superb route on every front" Phil, Oxfordshire

"We thought it would be a real trek to Bodmin so we stayed the night before in a delightful seaside B&B in Padstow where we had Fish and Chips from Ric Stein's famous shop. As it worked out it took half the travelling time we'd planned from London" Alan A, London

"Fantastic! Hundreds of like-minded people out on their bikes by the seaside. What could be better?! By far the best sportive I've ridden." Paul, St Austell

Routes
Click the little pink signpost icons at the bottom of this page to reveal the interactive route maps. Or why not take a look at out Tor videos from the link below and sample our fantastic cycling terrain? - it's beautiful even in the winter. The long route option is the only true coast to coast one day cyclosportive in the UK - you'll visit ITV Doc Martin's picturesque Port Isaac on the Atlantic coast and King Arthurs legendary Tintagel. Then it's a high-ride across lunaresque Bodmin Moor. Eventually long option riders reach idyllic Looe on the English Channel. Before, after and in between there is mile after mile of gorgeous and peaceful Cornish countryside. Do remember, it's virtually impossible to have anything but a seriously tough cycling challenge in Cornwall due to it's spectacularly hilly terrain.
