Isle of Wight Cycling Festival 'attracts visitors from around UK'

A member of the Isle of Wight Council has stated that one of the island's annual events attracts visitors from all over the UK.

George Brown, who is the cabinet member with responsibility for leisure and tourism, explained that the Isle of Wight Cycling Festival is one of the island's biggest draws for visitors from the mainland.

"The cycling festival forms a key part of the island's varied events calendar, helping to extend the tourist season and boost the island's economy," he said.

Cyclists who are booking Isle of Wight holidays to coincide with the event will be looking forward to the nine-day schedule, which includes the Hills Killer, West Wight Triathlon, Cycle the Wight and Wight Challenge.

The Isle of Wight Cycling Festival is set to run from September 18th to 26th 2010 and will get underway with the launch event in Newport, which includes the Sink or Swim Challenge, where bikers use pedal power in a race on the River Medina.
