Opportunity for novice cyclists to ride on closed roads

Inexperienced and nervous cyclists will get the chance to ride on closed roads as part of Isle of Man Cyclefest.

Non-competitive cyclists will be able to ride a 0.3-mile course around Ramsey on the festival's community day next month.

Manx Sport and Recreation hopes the opportunity will encourage more people to take up cycling, giving them the opportunity to ride on roads without traffic.

The event takes place from 12pm - 4pm on May 12th, with those taking part able to complete as many laps as they like.
