Wight Riviera Sportive Travel And Accomodation Packages

by Henry Peacock

The Wight Riviera Sportive is one of the most attractive events on the calendar this year, making it the perfect place to extend your stay and enjoy the surroundings.

The two Island ferry companies, Red Funnel and Wightlink have both given substantial discounts on crossings to event participants. Red Funnel are offering a straight 20% reduction on all vehicle crossings, while Wightlink have flat fare crossings for a car and up to five passengers, starting from just £55. For those wanting to just cross on foot with their bike to the event (ideal if you're just going over for the day), you can save 50% on Wightlink crossings from Lymington to the event base at Yarmouth; that means getting over to the Island and back for under a tenner!

One of the best things about the Wight Riviera is how good it is to make into a long weekend. With the event as the backbone of your stay, there are shorter family friendly ride options, and plenty more to do and see on the beautiful island too. So it's perfect even for cyclists and non-cyclists in a mixed group. There is a great choice of places to stay near to the event, and some great special offers to be had too!

Red Funnel have arranged some great travel and accommodation offers through their partners at the West Bay club and the Orchards Holiday Park, while the West Bay Club are giving a direct special offer to entrants. You can stay in their luxury holiday complex, (with spa, sauna and steam room, or enjoy the tennis courts, heated indoor swimming pool and state-of-art fitness suite) from as little as £61.50 per person per night; and that package includes ferry crossings for a car and six people, and even a bike wash and lube service!
