There is Still Time to Enter Wight Riviera Sportive

by Holly Blades

There is just over a week left to enter the Wight Riviera Sportive, the first sportive in the south of England to feature a public road closure.

The Isle of Wight event features an innovative new format that offers a 25km closed road loop around West Wight with a full mass start, before the longer routes continue onto the quiet rides of the wider island. Four distance choices are available, from the full 154km down to a family friendly 25km on those fully closed roads.

The ride comes with the full package of infrastructure and support that Southern Sportive bring to all of their events. Fully comprehensive course marking, well stocked support stations on the route, top quality energy products from Torq, reliable timing with instant results, and all the slick organisation that comes with 20 years of experience.

On top of this, you'll get a goody bag, a smart event t shirt and free tea, cake and locally made Mighella's  ice cream at the finish. Event photography will be provided by local professional Jason Swain, and available to download for just £1 per picture in the week following the event, with all proceeds going to the Island's Earl Mountbatten Hospice.

You can book online until midnight on Wednesday 16th May at, where you will also find discount codes for cut price ferry crossings to the event. Don't leave it too late - no more bookings will be taken after the 16th, and no entries will be avalailable on the day.
