The weather forecast is dry and bright for the only cyclesportive on the world-famous Isle of Man TT Mountain Course. Register in the iconic TT Grandstand, climb the mountain mile and enjoy the incredible tarmac for one, two or three laps (37.7, 75.5 or 113.2 miles) which sweeps you through Manx villages, past rolling fields and up towards Snaefell (Snowy Mountain) with fantastic views over the Irish Sea before a screamer of a descent past the Creg-Ny-Baa pub back into Douglas, on which Chris Boardman clocked over 60mph when he set the lap record of 1hr 23 min 54 sec back in 1993.

The Isle of Man has produced some of Britain's top cyclists, including Mark Cavendish, so if you'd like an opportunity to ride some of the island's scenic and challenging roads, the Isle of Man CC sportive might be for you. The course is signed, there are two refreshment stops en route and support vehicles are provided. Entries are open until Wednesday 24th

The Isle of Man CC is designed and run by Greenrock Ltd who also organise the ultracycling event The RACE (Race across Europe), a San Francisco to Los Angeles bike ride along the Californian Pacific Coastal Highway and Into Thin Air - an epic high-altitude bicycle tour on the world's highest motorable road in the Himalayas led by Laura Mearns, author of 'Himalaya by Bike'.
