Isle of Wight Cycling Festival 'offers a variety of rides'

Tourists planning Isle of Wight holidays for this summer have been informed an annual event on the island offers them a variety of bike rides.

Claire Critchison, Isle of Wight Council events officer, stated that the Isle of Wight Cycling Festival gives people the opportunity to sample the island's "picturesque" areas.

She explained that travellers will also be able to check out the Isle of Wight's selection of country pubs to break up their ride.

This year, the festival gets underway on September 17th 2011 - running for just over a week - and Ms Critchison stated that it has gone from strength to strength in recent years.

She said: "No qualifications are needed as enthusiasm and the ability to get on with other people is more important to us."

Earlier in the year, the Isle of Wight Cycling Festival won a Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Silver Award for Best Event 2010, which Alex Skinner, chair of CIPR Wessex, described as a "fantastic achievement".
