In celebration of the Wiggle MagnifiCat's tenth birthday, the Wiggle Super Series event takes place on Sunday 10th July, from Newbury, Berkshire. With 2000+ riders expected, the sportive is one of largest, oldest, and most renowned in the UK. 

Founded in 1999, Portsmouth-based Wiggle is now the biggest online cycling and tri-sports retailer in the world, serving customers in over 100 countries. The MagnifiCat has established itself as a prestigious event, forging the rolling Hampshire countryside and classic climbs on the South Downs as one. This UCI-approved sportive is one of a carefully picked handful, which many cyclists aim to tick off their to-do lists.

In its ten years, the Wiggle MagnifiCat has also worked closely with British Cycling and local communities to introduce cycling programmes into schools, organising coaching and a series of cycling activities, including the 2.5-mile KiddiCat fun ride for children.

The Wiggle MagnifiCat was also the first UK sportive to introduce the Breeze Ladycat women-only ride in 2012, with the aim of bridging the cycling gap apparent from the assertion that three times more men cycle for fun than women.

To celebrate the event's tenth anniversary, Wiggle is giving every registered rider the chance to win one of five DHB custom MagnifiCat jerseys. Winners will be drawn at random after the event.

Online entry closes at 1pm on Wednesday 6th July. To enter, visit here
