Published on: 14th August 2012

The Toy Trust will host a 70-mile Round the Isle of Wight Bike Ride on Saturday 15th June next year.

Recently cited by travel guide as one of the Top 10 best bike rides in the world, with many cycle paths and a spectacular coastal route, the Toy Trust event is open to all and is not a race. Participants can take up to nine hours if they wish and visit cafes and pubs along the way.

Nick Austin, Toy Trust Chair, said: “Our goal is to raise over £100,000 via sponsorship… All you need is a bike, a reasonable level of fitness, a sense of adventure and a big heart!”

Any company or individual interested in taking part should register with Matt Jones at the BTHA; The event is strictly limited to 120 places and the registration fee will be £75 each, which will include event entry, commemorative polo shirt and evening celebration meal and disco. A special Toy Trust hotel rate has been negotiated with the 4* Lakeside Hotel and Spa at Wootton Bridge on the Isle of Wight.
