On Sunday 1st July, the Isle of Wight Hospice want budding cyclists to get their helmets on for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice (EMH) Bike Challenge taking place at Robin Hill Adventure Park and Gardens from 10am to 4pm.
Inside Robin Hill there will be a host of different attractions to keep all of the family entertained! There will be an array of entertainment, local gift stalls and more to browse, this is alongside all of Robin Hill’s normal fun activities!
Dani Johnson, the Hospice’s Events Fundraiser who will be overseeing the main arena on Sunday said, “This fun event invites anyone under 12 years of age, with their own bike and helmet, to come and try their hand at six different fun games designed to improve their cycling skills.
“These events include a traditional Slalom Race, a Slow Race (where the winner is the last to cross the line), a Tightrope Race, an American style paperboy challenge, a Beanbag Balancing Race and the Water Balloon Torch Relay finale!”
“To take part in these fun events children must be under 12 years of age, and bring their own bike and helmet to Robin Hill on the day. All children bringing their own bikes will get entry into the park for just £1!”
The EMH Bike Challenge is just one part of the Park to Park Family Fun Day. There will be more main arena events including Zumba sessions for all of the family, the Eastern Promises Belly Dance Group, and music from Dave B and Vectis Corp of Drums.
Around the main arena there will be a host of different gift stalls from the Island, an EMH Charity Gift Shop, and the guys from Isle of Wight Speedway will be on site with their bikes and riders. Plus there will be a bouncy castle, space-hopper racetrack and balloon modelling to keep the kids entertained when they’re not on their bikes!
All of this is running alongside the always popular attractions of Robin Hill, where for one day only there will be a reduced ticket price of only £6.50 for Adults & Children (without a bike) / £5.95 for Seniors / £1 for Children (with their own bike).
The event is kindly sponsored by the Steve Porter Transport Group.
