If you can’t make it up north, then here is your last choice of the season and it’s in the south. So, what’re you waiting for? Don your cycling outfit, pull out your bike, pump your tyres and get on the road.

The Wiggle Kent Classic Sportive is a cycling event which we know you’ll enjoy. There won’t be too many members of the Birmingham Cycling Club here, but you should certainly be there if you can make it and send us your pictures when possible too!

You have just 21 days to sign up for this event – so get your credit card out and head over to the UK Cycling Events page – yet again. We’re regular members to this website.

So, onto the details: the event will take place on Saturday 11th November 2017. Wondering where it’ll be happening? The exact address is Lingfield Racecourse, Lingfield Park, Racecourse Road, Lingfield, RH7 6PQ. We expect to see you there! We’ll be there early with our lycra and helmets, of course. The event opens at 7:20am – are you a morning bird? You better get training if not. The discipline for this event is road, so make sure it’s right for you and then pick your option below.

There are two choices: Epic and Standard. However, if you can’t manage those two, then why not try out the Short or Under 16s? (Of course, depending on your age, we all wish we could be 16 again!)

The Epic option includes 79 miles and 5462 ft. It will cost you just £35 on the Cycling UK Events page. However, if you buy on the day then you can expect to spend £5 more as usual. Choose this option if you’ve been training hard for the season as the conditions may be less than desirable and it’s never a wise choice to up your game in the winter months.

Otherwise, choose the Standard option – which many of the Birmingham Cycling Club will be choosing. For this, you’ll need to pay the same price at £35. However, 50 miles and 3661 ft may be easier for you! Take this into consideration.

Finally, choose the Short option if you’re wanting to join in but stress less about the distance. You’ll find that this is 28 miles and 1919 ft. However, the price is also a lot shorter than the full distance options too at just £26. But, on the day, you can expect to pay £31 – we often choose this option if we’re unsure whether we’ll make it. However, if you can be sure then why risk not being able to get on the course on that day?

The under 16s is exactly what it says on the tin. However, this will cost you nothing! So, why not encourage your kids to be healthy and enjoy cycling as much as you do? All you need is to invest in a bike and your child could have a healthy hobby or passion for life. What’s stopping you?

At the event, you’ll find mechanics, medical teams and photographers. Your money also pays for parking, food and drinks – this includes on-site catering. After the event, you’ll receive a certificate and rider liability insurance as well as a bike wash after the event has taken place! What’re you waiting for! Book your ticket and we look forward to seeing you in Kent in the cold winter months.

If you don’t want to spend your week sitting on your bum while playing the Leprechaun Goes to Hell Slot game, then why not start training and book your online tickets for the Wiggle Devils Punch Sportive. Both have rather ridiculous names, so what’s stopping you?

This event with take place at the beginning of next month, so get a wriggle on and start your training as soon as possible. In fact, the actual date is: Saturday 4th November 2017.

What’s so special about the Wiggle Devils Punch Sportive? Well, you’ll be able to choose from a range of different courses. The longest option is 78 miles and 4744 ft. However, this will cost you just £30 to choose from – that is if you buy it from the UK Cycling Events website which we certainly recommend that you do!

The next option, after the Epic choice, is the Standard option. Many of those from the Birmingham Cycling Club will be going for this option as it is more accessible for those who aren’t able to cycle everywhere or train every day! This option is the same price, however, the course is slightly different and is 54 miles and 3287 ft. The price of just £30 is certainly a great offer, however, so make sure you snap it up on the Cycling Events site!

For those who are worried that the Standard option is too long, go for the short option instead. For this, you’ll be riding 28 miles and 1535 ft. However, it is £4 cheaper than the other options – so it might be worth opting for. You’ll also receive a medal for finishing, so make sure you choose a route which you can definitely finish!

For this cycle route, you’ll be following the North Downs. This is a very beautiful route and you’ll be able to see the Devil’s Punch Bowl on your route too. However, don’t participate if you can’t handle the hills and the bumpy ride in Surrey and Hampshire.

If any Birmingham locals are going to be at this event, then please get in touch! We would love to hear from  you as the Birmingham Cycling Club will be riding together. You’ll be able to warm up with us to make sure we’re all ready for the long ride and then we’ll face the route! The route is mainly downhill before we reach any peaks, but don’t worry, there are lots of places in which you can stop for a cuppa and something to eat! Cycling together is certainly one of the main reasons for joining up with a cycling club – you’ll never be bored with other cyclists at your side.

However, do bear in mind that this route is shorter than many of the others which you might have undertaken over the past few weeks. This is, of course, due to the season, but if you have one more ride in you then make the most of it as it could be the last great ride in good weather for some time!

There will be both a medical and mechanical team on site so you shouldn’t worry about packing your own kit – although we always recommend being prepared. You may also want to make sure you have your tyres pumped and the right gear ready! After the event you will receive both a medical but also an online certificate so you can remember the event for years to come!

The event will be held at: Dunsfold Aerodrome, Stovolds Hill, Cranleigh, Surrey, GU6 8TB Head over to the UK Cycling Events page now to buy your ticket.
