Shropshire – It’s called the secret county because it’s full of scenic gems and known for being off the beaten track. But it’s no secret to us having run our ‘Wild Edric’ sportive here before. In fact we use much of the old route. It’ll look and feel completely different because Wiggle Shropshire Mynd travels in a clockwise direction. The routes criss-cross the English / Welsh border so riders have the opportunity of climbing both Long Mynd (in England) and Long Mountain (in Wales). Kerry Hill features on the long route which is so long it rides almost like a typical European climb. The area is also steeped in history with fierce battles and the infamous 177 mile Offa’s **** which the route follows as you head towards Long Mountain. More information available in our Event Brochure.
