Isle of Wight contours 'perfect for cyclists'

Cyclists may wish to book Isle of Wight holidays after the island's contours were described as "perfect".

Councillor George Brown, Isle of Wight Council cabinet member with responsibility for tourism and leisure, stated that the Isle of Wight is a challenge for off-road cyclists.

He was speaking as the council encouraged cyclists to sign up to the Hills Killer Challenge - which takes place in September as part of the Isle of Wight Cycling Festival.

Cllr Brown said: "The Hills Killer is an incredibly popular event and is just one of many rides for all abilities that make up our annual cycling festival."

Entrants are given an electronic timing device, which checks the bikers in at various locations around the Isle of Wight, before they embark on the trek to the finish point at Park Resorts Holiday Park in Shanklin.

Those who want to book an Isle of Wight holiday to coincide with the challenge can stay at the resort itself, which features a heated outdoor pool among its attractions.
