Steeple Chase - Huntingdon

The Wiggle Steeple Chase sportive does largely what it says on the tin. With a plethora of historic church steeples, we pit the task to you to traverse the tranquil lanes of Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Leicestershire along which the eponymous spires are abundant. However, despite this ride’s playful

name, the terrain profile — which comprises a series of peaks throughout the route’s entirety — is a sobering image…

Starting in Huntingdon, just a stone's throw away from the historic university town of Cambridge, riders roll out on the ultimate Cambridge sportive from 7:30am. Soon after riders find themselves rolling along the punchy climbs and rolling descents throughout the Cambridgeshire sportive.

Normally known as ‘the flat lands’ to locals, we’ve scoped out the best climbs that Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Leicestershire have to offer. These hills may not be the steepest, but with one ascent following the other the Steeple Chase doesn’t offer up a great deal of respite, and you will be kept on your toes until the finishing line.

The summits, however strength sapping they may be, will afford you a vantage point from where to see the next steeple to chase, as you point your two wheels downhill and dip back into middle England’s leafy lanes.
