The Wigley Perms offer rides you can undertake on any date (where it doesn't clash with the Calendar ride) and range all the way from 50km to a full Super Randonneur series of 200/300/400/600km. The Perms start from around the Manchester area, either from the south (Poynton or Dean Row) or to the east (Uppermill or Stalybridge).
To ride the Wigley Perms, you just need to send in your entry form, confirm your ride date, then set off to pass through each control. To have your validated you need to establish your 'Proof of Passage' usually a till receipt or stamp from a shop, cafe or petrol station, an ATM withdrawal slip, or a GPX file of your progress.
All the Wigley Perms can now be ridden using an
on your smart phone. Do away with the uncertainty of not finding somewhere to obtain a till receipt, or needing to queue at a busy shop. No more worries that your Garmin, registering your progress, might run out of power.
