Wight Riviera Cycling Weekend to return this year
24-04-2013 Following the success of the launch event in 2012, the Wight Riviera cycling weekend is back on the Isle of Wight on 18 and 19 May 2013.
Big Wight MTB Enduro – Saturday 18 May 2013
The weekend sees two key events on the cycling calendar. First up is the Big Wight Enduro which offers four well signed distance options from 25km to 90km. Whether a beginner or a seasoned amateur each ride incorporates some of the best in mountain biking on the Island, from lofty chalk downs to breathtaking sea view descents.
Wight Riviera Sportive – Sunday 19 May 2013
Miles of quiet roads, substantial hills, spectacular scenery, and a laid back coastal vibe make the Isle of Wight the perfect destination for a road cycling sportive. With so many new sportives appearing on the calendar, it’s almost impossible to keep track, but when the Wight Riviera made its debut last May, it stood out as something truly original, being the first sportive in England to feature a major road closure. The 25km closed road Avant loop at the start allows cyclists to enjoy traffic-free roads near the iconic Needles and through the attractive Freshwater Bay.
FREE Family Rides
Bringing along the family? Don’t worry there is also Beach to Beach ride (free to enter) which is a 5km cycling event suitable for all the family and takes place on both the Saturday and Sunday.
