Event Details

Wiggle Gold Rush CX

Promoted by: Wiggle

Summary: Part of the Wiggle CX Sportive Series. The Gold Rush is an intense ride criss-crossing the lanes and droves of the Chalke Valley en route to Shaftesbury’s iconic Gold Hill, then brining you back to the start on a series of long, fast CX perfect drove roads. This is perfect CX country – in fact it could have been created for the event. The course area is a natural amphitheatre for your riding pleasure. The tiny river Ebble traces the floor of the valley that forms the backbone of a course which winds you constantly up and downs to the north and south. The ancient drove roads atop each of these downs, along with the narrow valley road, form the main arteries of the route, while the lanes, tracks and trails between the three weave in the detail; testing climbs that top out at 20%, descents that will send your stupid grin count off the scale, and a procession of picture box villages, scenery and views to lift your soul! Choose between 38km short route, 54km mid route, and 75km full route.
