Isle of Wight Cycling Festival reveals sponsor

The Isle of Wight Cycling Festival has announced it is to team up with cycling navigation specialist Mio for the 2012 event later in the year.

Mio is one of the world's leading GPS manufacturers and will be the title sponsor for the festival, which is set to run from September 22nd to 29th.

Thousands of people take Isle of Wight holidays every year in order to attend the event, which was relaunched by the Isle of Wight Council eight years ago to promote the island as a destination that is ideal for cyclists of all types of skill level.

It was noted in a statement by the local authority that the festival features rides such as "the popular Hills Killer Challenge and Cycle the Wight, to the more relaxing ride along the Newport to Cowes cycle track".

The Isle of Wight recently opened a new mountain biking facility, which builds on the trails that were created for last summer's Island Games.
