Thousands enjoy Isle of Wight Cycling Festival

Thousands of people headed to the Isle of Wight for the recent cycling festival which took place on the island.

Yesterday (September 26th 2010) was the final day of the event, with attendees getting stuck into the major challenge of the festival - a ride around the perimeter of the island.

There were both 70-mile and 50-mile treks available for those who wanted to enter, with many using the opportunity to raise money for charity.

"Alongside the famous Hills Killer and Cycle the Wight routes, there were more unusual challenges, including a Sink or Swim 'floating bike' race across the River Medina," noted the Isle of Wight County Press.

Earlier this month, the Isle of Wight Beacon revealed that three representatives of radio station Wave 105 - Rick Jackson, Liz Allaway and Simon Clarke - would be taking on the 70-mile ride to raise money for Wave 105 Cash for Kids.
