The Isle of Man CC (Cycle Challenge) is a cycle sportive which started in 2012 and is held on the world-famous Isle of Man TT Mountain Course. Now it’s your chance to ride this historic tarmac and enjoy feed stations round the course and a massage on your return to the Grandstand!

On entering you can choose to ride 1, 2 or 3 laps of the Isle of Man’s 37.7 mile (60.7 km) TT Mountain Course, starting and finishing in the pit lane at the iconic TT Grandstand and registering in the TT Press Office – a thrill for any TT fans. You can ride solo or as a relay team (one lap each).

The Isle of Man CC routes

The Isle of Man CC (Cycle Challenge) course is exactly the same as that of the Isle of Man TT, ie a clockwise route from the start / finish at the TT Grandstand on Glencrutchery Road in Douglas.

It’s a magnificent course with ever-changing scenery from rural pasture to sweeping views across the Irish Sea. The highlight is the mountain section past Snaefell (a Norse name meaning ‘Snow Mountain’) between Ramsey and the Creg-Ny-Baa pub on the descent back into Douglas. The course distance is 37.7 miles (60.7 km) with 2132 ft of ascent; two laps is 75.5 miles with 4264 ft of ascent and three laps is 113.2 miles with 6396 ft of ascent.
