Island 66

May 6

Cycle event iow

We’re challenging you to cycle 66 miles around the beautiful Isle of Wight.

Take in the breath-taking views of the white cliffs and clear blue sea as you cycle through the island’s winding lanes. Push yourself to the limit as you experience one of the UK’s top cycling destinations, while raising money to help us create a world without type 1 diabetes.

Beginning in Ryde, you’ll cycle along the coast before heading inland where you’ll face several climbs as you cross the central downs. Your hard work will be rewarded when you head back towards the coast for stunning views before crossing the finish. You’ll be greeted by a well-deserved glass of champagne and a celebratory BBQ.

This is a tough but rewarding challenge. One day, one island, 66 miles. Are you up for the challenge?
