White Horse Ridge CX Sportive This Weekend
The White Horse Ridge CX Sportive has a new calendar slot for 2016 to take advantage of late summer conditions. The event launched in November in 2015, but moves to a new date on Sept 25th this year, which should mean warmer weather and nice dry trails!. That’s important as most of the event course is up on the Oxfordshire Ridgeway, with only minimal intrusion from any tarmac. The Ridgeway is Europe’s oldest highway, used continuously for over 5,000 years, and also a ribbon of near perfect riding for CX and gravel bikes!
Based at Chilton right at the foot of the Ridgeway, the White Horse Ridge CX is all about the terrain! Unlike most of the Wiggle CX Sportive events, which chop and change between road and tracks, the White Horse Ridge is 95% off road. The Ridgeway mixes mile upon mile of grass, gravel, dirt and chalk track, riding high above sweeping views of the Oxfordshire plain.
The terrain is perfect for CX. Flowing enough to tempt you to up the pace, with just enough lumps and bumps to test your stamina when you get there. The surface changes mean there’s always something new just up the track and the scenery is a constant inspiration. On top of that, the organisers will keep you fuelled and on track with the full package of organisation and support that you can rely on at CX Sportive Series events!
As a Wiggle supported event, Wiggle mechanical support vehicles will be on hand to keep your bike in good shape, plus free Wiggle nutritional products will be available to keep you fuelled up.
