Local cycle events pass through Wigginton

Summer is approaching (honestly, though you’d never guess it right now), so if you fancy waking your bike from it’s winter hibernation and getting out in the fresh air, then there’s two local cycling events coming up which will be passing through Wigginton.

Sunday 27th May 2012 :

The annual cycle event called the Chiltern Hundred Challenge is a 100 mile on road non-competitive event. The event is not a race – riders start and finish at different times and there are no prizes. Riders are timed and awarded grades for their time based on age and gender. All riders have accepted that they will be riding within the Highway code at all times and ride in a private capacity. Details are at www.chiltern-hundred.org.uk. (The Parish Council has given permission for a refreshment stop to be set up at the Chesham Road sports field car park)
