The UK’s most prestigious Sportive, the Wiggle Dragon Ride, will return for its 10th year on Sunday 9th June 2013. The South Wales event will once again start from the picturesque Margam Park, Port Talbot, having moved there successfully in 2012.

The 2012 Grand Fondo (206km) and Medio Fondo (125km) routes made for the most challenging event to date and will remain the same in 2013; allowing returning participants the chance to compare their year on year times. The iconic Grand Fondo will take in approximately 3350m of climbing, passing through the beautiful Brecon Beacons and the Medio Fondo approximately 1875m.

A new addition is the introduction of a WomenOnly Cycletta, which will replace the previous Corto distance. Cycletta is the UK’s leading series of women only bike rides, supported by Olympic Gold Medallist Victoria Pendleton. This will be the first time the series will visit Wales.
