Luviair is delighted to be supporting Isle of Man Cyclefest presented by Isle of Man Bank, now in its second year.

After becoming an official sponsor of the three-day cycling festival last year we have renewed our support for this year’s event.

This year’s festival cycling schedule takes place between Friday 12th to Sunday 14th May and includes a full Community Day in Ramsey town centre that will offer a number of cyclists of all ages the opportunity to race or simply lap a specially devised street circuit around the Courthouse, accompanied by both the Junior and Ramsey Town bands, for the fundraising ‘Big Ride with Rebecca House’. The programme also features disability group Bike 4 Life and a full programme of Schools races for primary schools around a purpose built pop up Street Velodrome for the Sure Schools Challenge.


Luviair is committed to supporting local events here on the Isle of Man and Cyclefest hits at the heart of what that’s all about. It is a fantastic platform for the local community to get together and celebrate our wonderful island, whether that involves participating in one of the many cycling events or attending the Cyclefest festival at Milntown and sampling local culinary delights whilst listening to our incredible homegrown artists.

Luviair Managing Director Nigel Watson, a keen cyclist who has again entered the Cyclefest Gran Fondo event, commented:

“I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge that last year’s Gran Fondo race presented and am looking forward to pitting myself against the three notorious climbs again this year. The Isle of Man Cyclefest organisers did an extremely good job last year and will undoubtedly have learnt a lot so I’m sure this year will be even better and Luviair is delighted to remain involved.”

Paul Phillips, Director, Isle of Man Cyclefest, commented:

“Luviair were one of our founding partners last year and I’m really pleased that they have again shown their support. Luviair is a well-established and respected business on the Island and we are delighted to have them in our official partners programme.”

Tickets can still be purchased on the gate for the Isle of Man Cyclefest presented by Isle of Man Bank festival on the 13th and 14th May.
