Cycle 360 is excited to announce its official Cycle Partner status for the infamous Isle of Man Lighthouses Cycle Challenge!

The sportive cycle event will, for the first time, start and finish in Castletown and be a weekend-long event on 1st and 2nd July 2023.

As part of Cycle 360’s key partnership, several activities will be put on in the run up to the event aimed at supporting anyone planning to take part.  This will include educational sessions on bike maintenance and nutrition, and advice on how to prepare yourself for long rides.  There will also be regular coffee club social rides to help riders prepare!

Sacha Horsthuis, Head of Marketing at Cycle 360 said: “The Isle of Man Lighthouses Challenge is an inclusive cycling event that, importantly for Cycle 360, attracts all abilities of cyclists from complete beginners, leisure cyclists and performance riders.”

“The event even caters for e-bikers!”

“The aim of Cycle 360’s partnership is to encourage more rider participation through education, social rides, coaching and cycling networking events, as well as nutrition and mechanical tips.”

As well as the strategic partnership helping riders prepare to take on the challenge, Cycle 360 will have presence over the weekend in Castletown helping fuel riders with coffee and food, and there will be tech zone for riders near the start line with Cycle 360 expert mechanics on hand.
