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 - ie starting in waves from Exmouth Rugby Club.

Alsitair Cope said:” Aling with a lot of people I was heartbroken when we had to call the ride off. I am now off on a what was meant to be a post event cycle ‘holiday’ myself, following the Tour de France for a while but will be back ready to get the Wiggle underway, hopefully in the knowledge we have a British Tour de France winner.”

“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 offers two distances of 100k or 100 miles, both of which start and finish in the events village, where you’ll be met with food, drink, live music and entertainment.

Take your family and friends to the event village in Exmouth, at the Imperial Ground, and enjoy the atmosphere of ride.

Epic Ride 100 miles £28 from 7am; Challenge Ride 100 kilometres £28 from 8am

Limited places available but sign up now to be part of a 1,000 rider event.

At 100 kilometres, the Wiggle Jurassic Classic Challenge gives riders the chance to experience a challenging section of stunning Jurassic Coast World Heritage coastline. This circular route takes you through Budleigh Salterton and Otterton, before heading inland at Sidmouth. Next you ride through the villages of Sidford and Sidbury before the long, steady climb up to Gittisham Hill. Then descend into Honiton and the Otter Vale before a few more climbs on route to Woodbury Common, before heading back to the finish in Exmouth.”
