The Wiggle Devils Punch takes in the best of the North Downs and the surrounding area including the Devils Punch Bowl, from which it takes its name - for some of the best hill-packed, fun riding in Hampshire and Surrey.

A little shorter than most other rides to reflect the time of year, this could be the perfect wind-down for your legs as an end-of-season test.

The start of the route is kind on the legs, giving you chance to warm up as youll head out of the Holybourne start point, near Alton. The gradient will lead you mostly downhill before facing the first small climb of the day, on the sheltered back roads near Ropley Dean soon after which the first feed stop awaits to give you chance to recover.

The course continues east, travelling through small villages such as Lower Farringdon, Sellborne and Blackmoor. Looping around the outskirts of Bordon, its soon time to take on the Devils Punch Bowl, which is where the true challenge of the day lies in wait. The scenery around the attraction is worth the effort while itll test your legs on the short yet sharp climbs, the scenery is incredible.

Few challenges will present themselves as dramatically as this, but there is still the matter of the amount of miles youll need to cover before crossing the finish line. A series of fast descents and steep climbs stand between you and a medal on a tough but very rewarding ride.

The Wiggle Kent Classic Sportive has been designed to take you out of Surrey and into Kent for what will surely be a memorable day in the saddle.

Setting off from the village of Lingfield you will be out in the country before you know it, as all three routes head south to Wych Cross taking in the first of many quaint little villages youll cycle through during the ride. It is around this point, at the 7-mile mark, that youll tackle the first real steady climb of the day.

At Colemans Hatch, the Short route riders can relax knowing that theyve completed the hardest part of their ride with only two steady climbs left to tackle. Its at this point they will split off from the other routes as they head North towards Edenbridge.

Epic and Standard riders, however, go straight into the steepest climb of the day as they pass through Newbridge and make their way toward Royal Tunbridge Wells.

Shortly past Groombridge, the course divides again as the Standard riders head north with Royal Tunbridge Wells to their East. They wont see the Epic riders again until they reach Sevenoaks, having taken in Langton Green, Penshurst and Chiddingstone, to name but a few of the villages along the route.

Epic riders continue East as they ride into the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are a few short climbs along this section of the course that might take you by surprise. Notable elevation changes occur around Goudhurst, another just past Yalding and a third at Roughway. These should serve as nice testers to get you warmed up for the final climb at Dunks Green, that ascends steadily for several miles before peaking at Sevenoaks Common. It is here that youll embark on a nice descent before re-joining the Standard riders once again. From here, its a 14-mile ride back to Lingfield, via the village of Edenbridge, with no major challenges looming.

With three routes to choose from, The Wiggle Kent Classic Sportive has something to offer cyclists of all abilities, whether youre a beginner or someone that likes a bit of a challenge - all the while soaking in some of the best countryside Britain has to offer. After all, Kent is called The Garden of England for a reason.
