Isle of Wight to host charity bike ride

Cyclists who are taking Isle of Wight holidays this summer can take part in the inaugural charity bike ride organised by the British Heart Foundation.

The Isle of Wight Bike Ride 2010 features three different lengths of race - 50km, 75km and 100km - so eager cyclists will find one of the challenges is likely to suit their skill level.

Riders are encouraged to pledge at least £50 to the British Heart Foundation, as well as raising as much money as possible to take part in the event.

The organisers state that the 100km ride allows bikers to "cycle around the whole of the island, visiting each of the corners, while staying off-road virtually all of the way, using the best natural, hilly, technical trails the island has to offer".

Tourists taking Isle of Wight holidays who wish to have a go at one of the bike rides as part of their break on the island are encouraged to set a goal for their fundraising target and to think big.
