1st December to 31st January 2018

Isle Access is a not for profit organisation which has the aim of making the Isle of Wight more accessible and inclusive for everyone. They provide information about access for visitors and residents (see https://isleaccess.co.uk), and provide disability awareness training and guidance.

Last year they organised an accessible cycling event in Sandown. Using specially adapted bikes they were able to provide a cycling experience for adults and children who had never previously had that opportunity. It was such a success that they would like to run more of these events, and ultimately buy their own accessible bikes for use by the community.

This challenge is going to run for double the normal amount of time, right through from December to the end of January. This gives us a good chance to raise a decent sum for this great cause.

How it Works

Every kilometre ridden along the Cowes to Newport cycle path releases 10p from the sponsorship fund to Isle Access.

If the total target distance of 2,000km is reached by the end of the challenge on 31st January 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

We’re thrilled to have Red Funnel as our sponsor for this challenge. Red Funnel operate the Southampton to Cowes ferries and Red Funnel Holidays. You can take your bike on the vehicle ferry – handy for the Cowes to Newport cycle route.
