Macmillan Cycletta @ Wiggle Dragon Ride

When is the eventSunday 8th June 2014 Where is the Event Margam Country Park, Port Talbot, South Wales

Macmillan Cycletta @ Wiggle Dragon Ride Event Information

DISTANCE
45km (total climbing 397m) £32.50

*Distance is approximate

ENTER HEREENTRY DEADLINE: 9PM MONDAY 2nd JUNE 2014 (OR EARLIER IF FULL)

Macmillan Cycletta is the UK’s leading series of women-only bike rides and is supported by Olympic Gold Medallist Victoria Pendleton. This event is designed to appeal to women of all ages and abilities. For the second year a Macmillan Cycletta ride will take place as part of the UK’s most prestigious sportive, the Wiggle Dragon Ride. The event starts from the picturesque Margam Park, Port Talbot.

This Macmillan Cycletta at the Wiggle Dragon Ride will be slightly hillier than the usual Macmillan Cycletta rides meaning it will be more of a challenge if you have done previous Macmillan Cycletta events. The 2014 event will follow the same 45km (approximate) route as the Corto riders.

A slightly tougher test than the other events in the UK wide series, it provides a perfect platform for those wishing to work towards a larger more challenging sportive, with all the usual camaraderie that Macmillan Cycletta rides never fail to provide.

As with any Macmillan Cycletta event, there is no obligation to fundraise if you want to take part. We would love you to raise as much money as possible to help the great work Macmillan do for those who are suffering with cancer. No portion of the entry fee goes directly to Macmillan, any money received by Macmillan comes from fundraising undertaken by participants.


PROVISIONAL START TIME: 10:30am

AGE REQUIREMENT: Minimum Age 12 at 31 December, 2014 (anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult)

AMAZING EXPERIENCE:
•    45km (approx) course

Travel/Accommodation

The Dragon Ride will be based at Margam Park, Margam, Port Talbot, SA13 2TJ South Wales.

Please arrive at the venue before 9:30am to get free parking.

Margam Park is well used to holding major events such as the Wales Rally GB and British Championship Mountain Bike races. The park is located right alongside the M4 motorway and is close to the main line railway stations at Port Talbot and Pyle.

From riders feedback two main areas that will be improved are car parking and the start procedure. Car parking will be situated within the deer park only a few hundred metres from the start/finish area, the spacious eastern area of the park will accommodate a more expansive start facility in order to reduce waiting times for riders to get underway.

There are also several attractions on site for family members attending the ride such as the "Go Ape" zip wire, adventure playground, fantasy land and mountain bike hire.
