With January nearly over, and Wiggle Cheshire Cat nearly upon us, let's take a trip into May, by which time you'll be starting to reap the full benefit of those hard earned winter miles, having cultivated all that extra stamina - stamina that will be useful for two brand new sportives launched at www.kilotogo.com.
The Wiggle Yorkshire Weaver criss-crosses the 2014 Tour de France stage 1 and 2 routes, whilst the Wiggle Essex Explorer sets out to dispel some myths about the county.
More imminently, Wiggle Cheshire Cat is only two months away and we've already heard about lots of reccie rides to Mow Cop. 'The Cat' is proving to be as popular as ever as the summer season opener by fast approaching nearly 3,000 riders so if you haven't already entered, remember that for this year we have an even more inviting short route for all those who want to come to their first sportive - the 30 miler is a wonderful introduction to the sport.
The Wiggle Yorkshire Weaver has been developed in collaboration with Yorkshire’s Craven District Council that was firmly behind the Tour de France bid. Set totally within Yorkshire - with 2 challenging route options, iconic climbs and picturesque scenery from the first to last pedal-stroke. The routes start and finish in the beautiful Aireville Park in the Yorkshire mill town of Skipton. Be assured, this is no ordinary sportive bike ride – we’ve designed routes that show off the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, and take you past some of Yorkshire’s magnificent woollen mill towns.
The Wiggle Essex Explorer has some great countryside to explore by bike right on north-east London’s doorstep. Heading out from the Brentwood HQ and you might not realise you’re so close to the hurly-burly of the City of London. Lord Sugar, Mark Cavendish and Ford Europe all have homes right here in rural Essex. The area isn’t known for being particularly hilly but Essex isn’t completely flat either. Rural mid-Essex provides the opportunity to test out your cadence stamina combined with some climbing that will still enable you to maintain a good average speed. This is an opportunity to let loose with some of those larger gear ratios, after all cycling isn’t just about hills.
