The Friends are also delighted to have received sponsorship from the Skipton Community Fund again this year and are very much looking forward to working with them. This is a A fun, non-competitive family event which encourages you to cycle on a set route around the island. With three different starting points it caters for all ages and cycling abilities.

The Route

This round-the-island cycle has 3 different starting points to hopefully suit everyone so you can take your choice from the following;

  • Top of the Val Des Terres at 8.45am (unfortunately you are unable to park your car in the field so need to use nearby public parking – the field can be used to drop off your bikes)

  • Rocquaine at 9.45am

  • Grandes Rocques at 10.45am

(please note that if you have young or under confident cyclists who would still like to take part there is the option for them to join you at Salarie Corner Carpark to ride the final part of the route with you on the cycle path.  Please note this is not an official starting point but it does mean that your whole family can take part).

The event finishes on the White Rock in the North Beach Car Park where the Friends of Les Bourgs Hospice cheer in the riders and give out medals to everyone who have taken part until 2pm.

The cycle ride is not a race, but a family event with the route well sign-posted marshals at all key points so you cannot get lost! 

The full route takes riders from the top of the Val Des Terres through St Martins, along Fort Road, down past the Mallard Complex to Pleinmont Hill then along the coast all the way back to Town. There are plenty of beach kiosks en-route to stop off for refreshments or scenic spots to stop for a picnic lunch. As long as you reach North Beach by 2pm there is no rush.

This event is also the final ride for the 30/30 cycle challenge participants who arrive at North Beach at midday for their grand finale.
