The organisers of Cyclefest, presented by Isle of Man Bank, which takes place from Thursday 12th to Sunday 15th May 2016 on the Isle of Man, have published details of the route of the Gran Fondo which will be run under TLI Cycling rules and regulations.
The Gran Fondo is undoubtedly the highlight of the Cyclefest events and features several incredible climbs across the 82 mile route, which includes over 60 miles of closed road racing, and a further 20 miles on specially designated one-way roads.
The Gran Fondo offers two classes; ‘Competition’ and ‘Challenge’. The 'Competition' will be a race open to full TLI Cycling members only (no day members) and will start ahead of the 'Challenge' which is open to all other cyclists and which will be run as a Sportive type of event.
The four day festival starts in the scenic northern coastal town of Ramsey with two days of Criterium Course racing including the Pearl Izumi Tour Series before moving to the historic Milntown Estate, event base for the Gran Fondo as well as providing a stunning backdrop for a two day entertainment festival that includes artisan food offerings, stunt shows, live music and a packed schedule of family entertainment.
