Support Wiggle riders - August 18
The Wiggle Jurassic Classic cycle ride in aid of Prostate Cancer UK, has been rearranged for Saturday, August 18.
Due to the time constraints, the schedule of the event will be exactly the same, as will the venues as previously announced - with riders starting in waves from Exmouth Rugby Club.
local organiser Alistair Cope said: “Along with a lot of people I was heartbroken when we had to call the ride off due to the flooding. I would like to thank everyone for all their hard work. It is fantastic that Prostate Cancer UK is determined to make this event work and I for my part will do all that I can to make the rerun a great success.”
The ride will see almost 1,000 cyclists cycling around East Devon. The ride offers two distances of 100k or 100 miles, both of which start and finish in the events village at Exmouth RFC , where there will be food, drink, live music and entertainment as well as an Archant stand where there will be a chance to buy a charity goody bag and take part in a draw for a bike from Halfords.
The Epic Ride is 100 miles, entry fee �28 from 7am and the Challenge Ride, 100 kilometres, is also �28 from 8am
