Rating: Rate this Event Now

Wiggle Flatout in the Fens is quite simply the longest, flatest single day sportive in Britain. There's the longest route at over 150 miles, an Iron Man triathlon distance option of 112 miles, and a shorter route of just under 80 miles to tickle your cycling delights. This is the sportive with big horizons and big distances!

Why you must ride 'Flatout'! - This is a ride with a difference. Not one significant climb anywhere but full of superlatives!. Ridden on one of the longest days of the year, it's an opportunity to ride the largest number of sportive miles and pass the lowest point of altitude in the land at 4 meters below sea level; see some of the most impressive Dutch dyke engineering; ride towards big, wide horizons on the country's longest straightest roads. Take part in a challenge where previous 'Flatout veterans' tells us what a unique and fulfilling challenge 'Flatout' is. For the 3rd year, we're delighted to welcome Wiggle as our primary partner again - the UK's official number 1 online bike retailer. By riding Wiggle Flatout in the Fens, 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 - With huge horizons with dramatic skies and wide, open landscapes, the Fens give you a space to unwind. A unique area stretching across South Lincolnshire, North Cambridgeshire and Norfolk, it was originally an expanse of swampland that is now a thriving area for agriculture and tourism.
