New Forest Wiggle bike event passes peacefully

Daily Echo: Participants in the weekend's Wiggle ride in the New Forest. Participants in the weekend's Wiggle ride in the New Forest.

THE latest mass cycling event in the New Forest has passed off without incident.

A total of 650 cyclists took part in Wiggle Fallen Leaves yesterday, starting and finishing from the Foxlease Girl Guide centre near Lyndhurst.

Wiggle events have proved controversial with vandal attacks by campaigners unhappy about the disruption caused to residents’ lives. Incidents included sabotage with tacks being laid on the road.

Yesterday’s event mainly took place on Forest tracks and the numbers were limited due to the event needing a licence from the Forestry Comission, compared with the 5,000 people over a weekend at other Wiggle rides.

There were three rides, of ten, 26 and 35 miles, taking in Burley, Holmsley and Brockenhurst.

Martin Barden, of organisers UK Cycling Events, when contacted by the Daily Echo, declined to discuss how the event had gone.

Tony Hockley, chairman of New Forest Equestrian Association, said the event appeared to have passed off peacefully: “The only problem were two gates left open on the A35 at Holmsley and there weren’t marshals there, although organisers put someone there later in the morning. There was a potential problem with livestock getting on to the main road.”

Peter Roberts, chairman of New Forest Association, said: “We are keeping a close eye on these events because we are worried about commercial recreation in the Forest.”

Last month it emerged that UK Cycling Events had been barred from using New Park, Brockenhurst – home of the New Forest Show. A nearby pony round-up was scrapped, sparking claims that cyclists were being given priority over the running of the Forest. UK Cycling Events is hoping to use the Gang Warily recreation centre in Blackfield.

County council chairman Ken Thornber said recently that he could be forced to regulate the events. Speaking at a dinner in Beaulieu he said: “Competitive cycling is changing the character of the Forest for the worse. If the organisers don’t agree to enforce a code of conduct it falls to us – the local highway authority – to take action to regulate these events.”

Next year’s Wiggle New Forest Spring Sportive is due to take place on the weekend of April 12-13.

23 minutes for a cycling event story to get a complaint. And this one had no problems.

Has any body got Kris Akabusi's number? We may need to bring back Record Breakers.

merely pointing out that the cyclist far left with a camera on his helmet, no doubt there to record any poor driving, is cycling like a complete numpty practically down the middle of the road.
Has anyone got AHA's number? We may need them to re-release 'Touchy'.

They may not be five abreast in line, but they are five deep from the kerb spread out over a larger area, this shows them to be less considerate to other road users than they would have us believe.
Hows that for depth perception.

A bicycle is a vehicle on the road and a person riding it has the right to act like any other person on the road.Some motorists think it is a divine right to be moving at whatever speed they want and a cyclist is holding them up. I'm afraid it is tough if a cyclist holds them up. In most urban areas traffic moves slowly so a cyclist doesn't hold up traffic.You can take whatever part of the lane you like.

Not great. They're not five deep either. But the number is irrelevant. It's obvious from the picture that they're nowhere near taking up the entire side of the carriageway - look at where the white line is. The common advice is to treat cyclists as if they were the width of small cars, and I happen to think that's excellent advice. As far as I can see, there isn't a problem here, unless you're one of those drivers that thinks it's ok to pass a cyclist leaving a gap barely wide enough to accept even the finest of credit cards.

Partly agree. Ideally, both parties take the other into account. No, drivers do not have the right to do whatever speed they wish, but this isn't carte blanch for cyclists to deliberately block their progress. Give cyclists plenty of room, pass when it's safe, and in return cyclists should endeavour not to impede the progress of motorists. That way, nobody loses right?

I don't need my keyboard for having a laugh at cyclists they are fair game wherever they are, dressed in clowns outfits and cycling 5 abreast and sticking 2 fingers up to other road users.
How much longer before they realise that they are their own worst enemies by their own arrogant attitude and self riteous outlook towards any that dare to disagree with them. you gain respect not demand it as you are now.

Don't need them during the day and they are only recommended in poor weather(though I'd still have mine flashing all the time) and only legally required at night, though not having any in fog is a terrible idea and could get you booked for dangerous cycling, but no fog in the picture, so they are legally allowed to not have lights on since that was during the day.

So, by your logic, someone has to earn your respect on the road before you give them plenty of space or decide not to pull out from a junction on them? Does this go for all road users? Or just cyclists? How much respect would someone have to earn before you treated them like a legitimate road user? How would this respect be earned? How long would it take to earn said respect? Again, does this apply to all road users or do other drivers get instant respect because they're also in a protective tin box? Also, if you don't demand respect, why is it that so many motorists DEMAND respect themselves? They haven't earned it,so why should I give it to them?

There not lycra clad roadies anyway, there off roaders, a different breed. But in all seriousness what can Ken Thornbar and his local highway authority actually do to prevent a cyclist going on a road.

But i find lots of people inconsiderate, The idiots doing 50 mph hogging the middle lane, Drivers going 45 in a 60 get to the 30 limit and carry on doing 45, or the drivers that block the end of my road so you get out even on a green.I Can go on forever.

They are everywhere not just cyclists, Hate them all.

How do you know he is not moving over to turn right, I dont know I have given up defending the idiot cyclists But sometimes Just let them get on with it. Lifes too short.

Firstly, if he was turning right he should indicate he's doing so by sticking his right arm out to warn following traffic, and secondly, there is no right turn at that part of the road.
But you're right, life's to short to worry about middle aged men in tight shorts.

Firstly, I believe this topic has been covered already but you only have to indicate then move. If he was about to turn right, its accepted that both hands would be on the handlebars. You don't keep your arm out once you are in a position to turn or during the turn itself.

Secondly, middle aged men in tight shorts is a sweeping generalisation and reeks of fit human jealousy. Get over it. We're better looking than you.

But i find lots of people inconsiderate, The idiots doing 50 mph hogging the middle lane, Drivers going 45 in a 60 get to the 30 limit and carry on doing 45, or the drivers that block the end of my road so you get out even on a green.I Can go on forever. They are everywhere not just cyclists, Hate them all. How do you know he is not moving over to turn right, I dont know I have given up defending the idiot cyclists But sometimes Just let them get on with it. Lifes too short.
Firstly, if he was turning right he should indicate he's doing so by sticking his right arm out to warn following traffic, and secondly, there is no right turn at that part of the road.
But you're right, life's to short to worry about middle aged men in tight shorts.
Firstly, I believe this topic has been covered already but you only have to indicate then move. If he was about to turn right, its accepted that both hands would be on the handlebars. You don't keep your arm out once you are in a position to turn or during the turn itself.

Secondly, middle aged men in tight shorts is a sweeping generalisation and reeks of fit human jealousy. Get over it. We're better looking than you.
And hes not wearing shorts. I love the way people take offence of five random strange people in a photo, No one on here was held up by them or even ever met them, So whats the Problem.

I'm happy they are out doing something enjoyable and not sat at home doing nothing or getting up to no good.

I'm not the one making their self look like an utter fool with comments saying that people on the road have to earn your respect before you drive around them safely and saying that you don't demand respect, even though that's exactly what motorists do by using petty and non-existent reasons, so cyclists and other vulnerable road users, have decided to demand it in return for a good reason, yet people like you don't like the taste of your own medicine, do you?

Nope, I'm not physically or verbally aggressive, I'm not combative and I'm not especially confrontational, which is the definition, as given by the Oxford English dictionary, so no, I'm not militant at all any you have been incorrectly using the word, only time I may SEEM to be verbally aggressive, is if my life has been put in danger or if I feel threatened, especially when a motorist IS being a militant tool.

Methinks that fits you perfectly.[/p][/quote]Nope, I'm not physically or verbally aggressive, I'm not combative and I'm not especially confrontational, which is the definition, as given by the Oxford English dictionary, so no, I'm not militant at all any you have been incorrectly using the word, only time I may SEEM to be verbally aggressive, is if my life has been put in danger or if I feel threatened, especially when a motorist IS being a militant tool.[/p][/quote]Correction your not militant then, just so boring and pedantic you must be real fun at Christmas parties![/p][/quote]At least I don't impersonate Scrooge like you do.[/p][/quote]Bah Humbug! geoff51
