The Course

2 x Routes Available. Ticket price includes ferry crossing : Epic 75 Miles Standard 59 Miles Escaping Britain’s shores if only just for a day is enough to make this event sell out each time it has been held. Built on the foundations of France’s celebrated love of cycling, the Wiggle French Revolution is a teasing taster of what life is like riding on the other side of the English Channel. This European trip takes the sting out of independently planning cycling abroad, as we’ll take care of everything on this ride to ensure you enjoy your day and get the most out of the fast-paced sportive setting. From meeting en masse in Dover with the other riders, to getting a group escort onto the boat, to guiding you around the picturesque, quaint and signposted wilderness of northern France to getting you back again – all is included as part of the package. Upon arrival in Calais, you’ll head out along the cliff-top coast roads that test the legs straight away – you’ll climb to a vantage point that, on a good day, you can see back to England set against a backdrop of the ever-busy to-and-fro of boats and ships sailing on the Channel. Before long, up turns to down, and you’ll be employing your best descending technique to drop into Escalles – but don’t forget this steep hill as it’ll be the last thing you have to conquer before reaching the finish line later in the day. Dropping into the Parc naturel régional des Caps et Marais d'Opale, a counter-clockwise loop ensues as you ride through pretty and sleepy French villages like Caffiers, Fiennes and Bazinghen. Many of the back roads that connect these communes are littered with grape fields and small farms – but best of all, nearly no cars – at no point will you forget you’re in France. After the last climb back to Calais, you'll have a perfectly flat 7-mile run to the finish, which is at the Calais Ferry port itself. A finishers medal will be given to you before you board the next ferry back to Dover with your sense of adventure and exploring spirit fulfilled. Food and showers will be available on the Ferry. Note: Riders must have a valid EU passport and travel insurance. Sorry but no Under 16s for this ride. The event is limited to 800 riders and sold out in 1 week in 2015 so book early to avoid disappointment! Ferry tickets included with this event can only be used on the day of the event on scheduled ferries and not used on any other day. Ticket price includes the ferry crossings.
