If you have a smart phone (Android or iOS), you can ride Wigley Perms with an eBrevet. This saves you all the trouble of collecting receipts from shops, cafes, or petrol stations, or frees you of the worry of your Garmin batteries giving out.
for all the ride if you are worried about battery life; it only needs to be on (with location services turned on) at each control. You only need mobile data switched on to download the eBrevet before the ride and to upload your completed eBrevet after the ride.
There is also the facility to customise your Perm ride. You can often reverse the direction of the ride, start at a different control, or specify your own start place. Or indeed any combination of these.
Add 'Wigley' as the Organiser name in the search box, click SEARCH, then select the 'base' route that you want to customise.
Click on the

button at the bottom of the page.

Set Start Location
to YES. Establish your exact start point by double clicking on the map, and then add the distance to the first proper control (you can get this figure from the route sheet). The app will then calculate all the other control distances.
NB Your start should be somewhere along the route, as you won't be given extra time for any added kilometres!
You can have any combination of the above (provided the Perm allows it)

Click on the

For a list of your successfully uploaded E-Brevets go to
and click on

For a customised E-Brevet, the full ride code will have a format of

At the control:
It can sometimes take a few seconds for your phone to 'catch up' with your location, so if the phone says you are not yet at the control, just cancel and try again. If it still says you're not at the control after a couple of tries,
when you should check that you are in the right place!
If you're not at the control yet, continue until you are.
If you've missed the control you can SKIP it and try to convince the Organiser that your ride should still be validated.
