Storm The Tower Hill Climb Powered by Isle of Man Creamery

Isle of Man Cyclefest’s unique take on the traditional British hill climb gives our budding cyclists the opportunity to race against the clock on the iconic TT Motorcycle Course. Held over 1.5 miles of this world-famous ribbon of tarmac, competitors will power themselves in lung-bursting fashion, out of Ramsey, and up past the Albert Tower, built to commemorate the visit of Prince Albert and Queen Victoria.

Finishing at 700ft above sea level, riders get to soak up the stunning view out over the sea to England and Scotland, but only once they’ve taken the chequered flag!

Battle of Sky Hill XC MTB

Isle of Man Cyclefest’s cross country mountain bike race will start and finish at Milntown Estate and boasts a leg-breaking ascent of nearby Sky Hill, site of the bloody battle between the Manx and the invading Vikings in 1079.

Competitors wind their way around the hill’s contours before descending through its challenging forest-lined single-track network before another lung-busting ascent over the heather-clad moorland. With hazards and obstacles at every turn, the Battle of Sky Hill will ensure a worthy victor pulls on the first of Cyclefest’s leader’s Yellow Jerseys!

Isle of Man Cyclefest Gran Fondo Presented by Isle of Man Bank

Isle of Man Cyclefest will boast the Island’s first ever Gran Fondo – a continental style Sportive that promises to enhance the Isle of Man’s reputation as a leading cycling destination. Still very rare in the UK, yet hugely popular on the continent, cyclists from the British Isles would once have to travel large distances to experience a true Gran Fondo, so we are delighted to host one of what is only a handful of such events within easy reach of the cycling-mad British public.
