Wiggle Super Series Event Expands Due to Huge Demand

PORTSMOUTH, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 5, 2011) - Tickets have been snapped up so quickly for the Wiggle Super Series New Forest 100 Sportive that an extra road bike sportive event has now been scheduled. All 1,200 places for the New Forest 100 Sportive - due to take place on Sunday, October 2 - from Brockenhurst, Hampshire - were sold in record time so organisers of UK Cycling Events have added the Saturday New Forest 100 Sportive to the popular calendar of events.

The bonus sportive will be held on Saturday, October 1, and will cater for 500 riders. It will boast all the same features as Sunday's event and cyclists will be able to choose between the 100-mile epic route, the 66-mile standard route or the 44-mile fun route. All routes will weave their way through the beautiful New Forest National Park where the breathtaking scenery and quiet forest roads make for perfect riding.

Participants can look forward to all the luxuries which they have come to associate with the Wiggle Super Series events including well stocked feed stations, disposable chip timing, mechanical support, massages, wash facilities for the riders bikes, a finisher's medal, well marked courses and a goody bag worth more than £10.

Organiser Martin Barden, of UK Cycling Events, said: "We were delighted when the New Forest 100 Sportive sold out in record time. When more and more road bike riders kept requesting places, adding another event on the Saturday seemed like the perfect solution. We did a similar Saturday sportive in April when our Spring Sportive sold out early and it was very well received."

About Wiggle Super Series Events

Wiggle Super Series events are designed to be fun and friendly. They typically offer two or three different length routes and can include a battle against the clock to be awarded a bronze, silver or gold time.

Attracting both experienced riders and newer faces to the road riding circuit, Wiggle Super Series events aim to encourage everybody to get out and ride – that's why children can ride for free when they attend with a paying adult. To make it hassle-free, each event has feed stations, toilet facilities and an easy-to-follow course.
