Description

The Course

3 x Routes Available : Extended 100 Miles Standard 65 Miles Short 30 Miles Following the success of Wiggle Four Counties in 2016, a new Counties Challenge sees riders start and finish at the same location in Bamber Bridge, but combines elements of the original route with some new challenges for 2017! The existing 100-mile challenge will see a different route whilst keeping the tough climb towards to end of the ride. New 65 and 30-mile routes have also been added with less of a tackle to reach the finish. All routes will start and finish together and pass through one, two or three North West counties: Lancashire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester. 100 Mile Route Starting at Withy Grove Park in Bamber Bridge, you will begin by cycling west and then south through to Croston.  At this point the 30 mile cyclists have already turned off and back to the finish, while you continue on through Burscough, Scarisbrick, and loop around Ormskirk.  Once through Maghull you will cycle east north of Rainford and through Billinge before making your way north through Hindley and over to Rivington.  The big challenge for this event comes in the form of Rivington and you reach this 70 miles in.  Once at the top a lovely trip to Darwen follows, and the event ends in a largely downhill final 15 mile section back to Bamber Bridge and the finish line. 65 Mile Route Starting at Withy Grove Park in Bamber Bridge, you will begin by cycling west and then south through to Croston.  At this point the 30 mile cyclists have already turned off and back to the finish, while you continue on through Burscough where you turn off from the 100 mile cyclists and head west through Newburgh and Parbold before trips through Wrightington, Standish, and Red Rock before turning north-bound at Haigh.  The big challenge for this event comes in the form of Rivington and you reach this 37.5 miles in.  Once at the top a lovely trip to Darwen follows, and the event ends in a largely downhill final 15 mile section back to Bamber Bridge and the finish line. 30 Mile Route Starting at Withy Grove Park in Bamber Bridge, you will begin by cycling west and then south through to Croston.  Prior to Croston you will turn east-bound towards Leyland, Bringle, and Hoghton, before a loop up to Samlesbury and back down to Bamber Bridge and the finish line.   Event Includes
