Keen cyclists sought to lead festival routes

Monday, March 28, 2011 - 8:10

AN "on your bike" message for volunteers has been delivered by the Isle of Wight Council.
The authority is looking for volunteer ride leaders for the Island’s biggest cycling event — the Isle of Wight Cycling Festival — from September 17 to 25.
With around 200 miles of cycling paths and 12 marked routes, many passing through areas of outstanding natural beauty, the Island continues to attract serious and leisure cyclists.
Last year it was named as one of the 'world’s best cycling routes’ in the Best in Travel Guide, published by The Lonely Planet, the largest travel guide and digital media publishers in the world.
Keen to promote cycling as an environmentally friendly way for visitors to experience the Island, as well as providing a programme of events that will benefit the Island’s cycling community, the council is now looking to expand its team of dedicated cycling enthusiasts.
Isle of Wight Council events officer Claire Critchison said: "If you are an experienced cyclist and would like to share your favourite route with others, then we would love to hear from you.
"Each day of the week-long festival we offer cyclists the opportunity to take part in a variety of rides that take in the most picturesque areas of the Island, as well as local landmarks and the occasional country pub.
"I can be reached on 01983 823070 or by e-mail at [email protected]."
