Isle of Man Cyclefest Piccolo Fondo
Presented by Isle of Man Bank
Sunday 22nd April 2018
If the Gran Fondo sounds more like torture than a day out, don’t despair! Isle of Man Cyclefest is all about getting active and bringing people together, so we are delighted to present the Piccolo Fondo – a family friendly course lovingly designed to encourage everyone out into the beautiful Manx countryside.
Winding its way around the peaceful coastline and flatter farmland of the northern plains, our 22mile Piccolo Fondo is a mini delight – a patchwork of tiny villages and church steeples, set amongst the fields and blooming hedgerows that frame the quiet strips of tarmac rolling blissfully beneath you.
And with miles of vehicle free roads to enjoy, the Piccolo offers a perfectly proportioned taste of Manx cycling, with participants returning to Milntown just in time for a spot of lunch, a long drink, and the first of the day’s brilliant music acts!
