2012 Wiggle Super Series Launches on 24th October


Posted Monday 17th October 2011 –

After a hugely successful 2nd year, the Wiggle Super Series will be announcing its line-up of events for 2012 on October 24th – and are promising that it’s going to be bigger and better than ever with some exciting new additions with a total of 22 events planned. They’ll be a mixture of both road sportives and MTB events which should offer something to appeal to riders of all ages and abilities.

2012 will see the sell out three-part ‘Wight Ferry Sportive’ expand to cope with the huge demand 2011 saw. This unique sportive which will start in the New Forest National Park then involve a ferry trip over to the Isle of Wight, where riders will enjoy a clockwise route around the island before jumping back on board the ferry for the ride back in the New Forest. This event sold out 4 months before the event in 2011. It is set to be one of the hottest tickets in town again.

Similarly the Wiggle New Forest Spring Sportive and New Forest 100 sportive will expand their capacities as these events sold out well before the events taking place.

Martin Barden, of UK Cycling Events, the organiser of the Wiggle Super Series, said: “We’re really excited about the 2012 Wiggle Super Series. This year proved to be a massive success and we saw many riders returning time and again to take part in our events.”

There will be incentives for regular riders and early bookers. The ‘Super Series Season Pass’ is limited to the first 100 applicants and will give riders automatic entry into all events at a massively reduced cost whilst any rides booking an event more than 8 weeks in advance will receive a free High5 Race Faster pack worth £12.

The much sort after ‘No Excuses’ Sportive is also making a return in 2012. The first sportive of the season is likely to be ‘given away’ again in record time, because it’s totally free. The ‘No Excuses Sportive’, will be limited to 1,000 riders, none of whom will have to pay penny if they ride the event. The catch? If you sign up and don’t show up, you’ll be charged £25 (with all profits going to charity). We do not want to hear your excuses, we just want you to get out and ride! The exact date will be announced shortly.

Entries open on the 24th October, more details can be found at –
