Explore Island challenge for MGP cause

Event postponed from Tuesday

There's a chance to take on a challenge, explore the Island, and raise money for a local good cause all at the same time today (31 Aug).

The Ride Around Challenge is back for 2017 - and is open to visiting bikers, tourists and residents alike.

It was supposed to take place on Tuesday, but has been rescheduled due to racing.

This year the theme is bridges - with a promise you'll visit some you know, and some you don't!

Organiser Peter Giles from Bristol devises the quiz each year to raise money for the MGP Helicopter Fund.

He says anyone can take the challenge - with or without their own wheels.

Signing on is at Peel campsite between 9 and 10am this morning, the event finishes at Laxey seafront between 2 and 3pm.
