ROUTE INFORMATION

2 route options are available –

  • Standard – 52 miles

“The Wiggle Circuit Breaker Sportive starts from the iconic Silverstone Motor Racing Circuit. This is a cracking end of season sportive made up of rolling hills. It is not a hilly course, it can be described as flowing allowing rider to keep a good pace. There is only 1 notable hill which features on the Epic loop.

After the start you ‘Break out of Circuit’ and head into the quiet lanes of Northamptonshire. The route heads North in an anti-clockwise direction, sweeping through stunning Villages lined with Limestone houses and elegant Churches.

Highlights include passing several National Trust sites and points of interest including: Canons Ashby, Farnborough Park, Burton Country Park, Litchborough House and Boddington Reservoir. Between the endless miles of quiet roads, there are constant points of interest dotted on the route.

At the 60 mile point, the Epic riders climb the leg sapping but short Burton Hill to the stunning Burton County Park. A gradual descent will allow your legs to recover for the final push South East towards the finish back at Silverstone.”
