A new family fun event is gearing up for action next month.
The Cycle 360 Corrin’s Folly Challenge takes place on Sunday, August 22 and is set to be a great day out for participants and spectators alike.
There will be racing for all ages throughout the day with great vantage points for spectators. And to make sure no-one goes hungry or thirsty watching the action, Fire & Ice will be serving up Mexican style street food and Noa Bakehouse will be on hand with coffee, cake and fresh pastries throughout the day.
Across the 3.3 miles course, there’ll be designated viewing areas to watch the racing as it unfolds, including participants taking on the 450ft gruelling ultra hilly climb or the fast-flowing downhill section!
Sacha Horsthuis, Head of Marketing & Events at Cycle 360, said: ‘Cycle 360 is proud to be title sponsor of this unique event and as a team we’re particularly excited about the course and how much fun the location of Peel will provide riders and spectators on the day.’
The time trial mountain biking challenge is open to anyone aged 13 or over with a total of four different classes to enter (juvenile, youth, junior and senior).
Starting and finishing at the Transport Museum near Peel Harbour, the course will include part of the old Railway Line, a section of the Raggatt and a mixture of hard surface, muddy lanes and footpaths with classes from one lap (juvenile) to five laps (seniors) and a range of prizes up for grabs.
The Juvenile and Youth (ages 13-16) races start at 9:45am, the Junior (ages 17-18) at 11am, and the Senior, Master, Veteran, Grand Vet, Super Vet races (ages 19+) set off at 12:15pm. A prize presentation will complete proceedings at around 4pm.
Peter Young from Event management Solutions, one of the race organisers, added: ‘We’re really looking forward to this great event and thank Cycle 360 for their support as headline sponsors. We also have Holmes and Davidson as prize sponsors which not only brings a major health care professional on board but also recognises the importance of having the support of local business community so we can deliver these events.’
It’s all being run under British Cycling regulations and overseen by a British Cycling Commissaire.
