Celebrate Summer with a brand New Mountain Bike Event
Our new ‘Great BBQ Bash’ mountain bike event will be unlike our usual MTB events. Set aside the afternoon and early evening of Saturday July 9th 2022 for a ride and a social get-together.
Leaving Sandown at 4pm on the Saturday afternoon the route will head towards Shanklin, Wroxall and Ventnor before heading back to join the after party.
There will be some hills, maybe fewer to overcome than usual but the emphasis of this event will be more of celebration! After a turbulent couple of years you now have the chance to enter, ride for a few hours and return to the Airport to enjoy a catch-up with friends, a bite to eat and a drink around the roaring fire-pit.
The course will cover roughly 15-18 miles and climb in the region of 1,500ft.* So, pretty tame for a GP Sport MTB event but we are shifting the focus onto the social element, with live music and a relaxing atmosphere the après-ride is the place to be seen at.
Free parking is available at Sandown Airport.
Standard entry is £ 15.00
Junior entries (11 – 16) are £ 10.00. All juniors are to be accompanied on the course at all times.

The route will follow a mix of terrains as we journey across the Island. Route GPX will be available closer to the day for those who have registered and an accurate map will be posted online too. .
