The Wheelie Big Cycle takes participants through some of the most scenic parts of the country and for 2018 we have four new routes, including a 100-mile challenge which will take you into Wales and back.

We’re also pleased to announce the return of The Wheelie Little Cycle.

Route details: (24, 40, 58 & 100-miles):

24 miles (minimum age 9 years) – a perfect challenge for families and friends to do together.

40 miles (minimum age 12 years) – for competent cyclists and those looking for a slightly harder challenge

58 miles (minimum age 14 years) – for experienced cyclists

100 miles (minimum age 17 years) – a tough cycling challenge for the more experienced cyclist and for those who have trained for this distance and elevation profile
*Please note this route is pre-entry only*

Important: Cyclists are responsible for bringing:

At least one spare inner tube (the correct type for your bike),
Cycle pump

Spare lights and batteries.

Halfords bike maintenance
Bike mechanics, from the Hereford Halfords store, will be on hand to help with minor mechanical issues at the start and finish of the event and will also be available to assist cyclists when out on the routes. Parts and spares can be provided and will be charged at retail price, with all proceeds donated to St Michael’s Hospice.
