1st May to 31st May 2018
The Wessex Cancer Trust Isle of Wight provides free services and support to those living with or affected by cancer. Located in the centre of Newport, the Isle of Wight Support Centre offers an oasis of calm to people who are coping with a very difficult time in their lives.
The Trust is currently trying to raise £100,000 for a new Cancer Wellbeing Centre on the Isle of Wight. This will be a warm and welcoming new community hub for the 6,000 people living with cancer on the Island.
How it Works
Every kilometre ridden along the Cowes to Newport cycle path releases 10p from the sponsorship fund to Wessex Cancer Trust.
If the total target distance of 2,000km is reached by the end of the challenge on 31st May 2018 the amount released is doubled! The cycle path is about 5km long so to reach the target needs around 400 journeys.
- Each kilometre ridden raises 10p
- If the 2000km target is met the sponsorship money is DOUBLED
About the Bicycle Island App
Everyone riding the trail contributes to the current distance challenge. If the target is achieved a donation is made to support a local charity project on the island.
In the Guide section you can find out about what birds to look out for, about the old railway, the industrial heritage of the Medina… and much more.
See how your distance along the trail compares to others using the route. Join teams and compete as a group or individually.
Discover offers that are ‘unlocked’ at particular locations along the route. Offers will be changed regularly but you will need to cycle the route to discover them!
You can form teams of up to six riders. Compete against other teams for the glory of becoming the top ranking team on the leaderboard!
Report a Problem
The app provides the facility to report a problem along the Cowes to Newport cycle route. This will be submitted to the maintenance team at Island Roads.
