The Isle of Wight is well known for providing some of the very best cycling in the UK and is steeped in riding history - participants of the Cycle the Wight won't be disappointed. With three routes for 2021, this event takes in the very best of the Island and its breathtaking beauty, offering a ride to suit most cyclists abilities. Riders will experience challenging climbs, rolling descents and views that make all the effort worth it.
Post-ride you will be greeted by our welcoming team, where you will have the opportunity to relax, unwind, and socialise with like-minded riding buddies. This is set to be a spectacular early summer event that you’ll be talking about for weeks after.
We want to encourage young riders to enjoy the pleasure of cycling. That's why all riders under 16 years old only have to pay a small fee to cover the entry process. All under 16 riders must be accompanied by a paying adult. Valid ID will be requested on the day.
Although all our rides are non competitive events (i.e. not races), most people still like to know how well they've done. With this in mind we will time each participants ride. When you complete your ride your time will be calculated and these timings, along with the timing award you achieved, will be displayed on our results page. Each rider will receive a timing award of either; bronze, silver or gold, depending on their average speed. Of course, some riders aren't bothered about all these awards and just cycle for the experience and stunning scenery.
