Conister Bank Longest Day, Longest Ride (hosting the 2018 British Solo 24 Hour Mountain Bike Championship)

Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th June 2018

Appropriately held around the weekend of the Summer Solstice, The Longest Day, Longest Ride is an annual 24 hour endurance mountain bike event, held at the scenic Conrhenny Plantation in the Isle of Man, organised by Loughtan Loaded.

This year, the Ride is that extra bit special because it is also playing host to the 2018 British Solo 24hr Championships.

Over the years, this iconic event has evolved into one of the Island’s best supported charity and community minded sporting spectacles, where competitors get the chance to push mind and body to the max – all for a good cause.

The format is straightforward; ride for as long as you possibly can, clocking up as many laps of the course during the allotted time. Unlike most 24 hour endurance events held in the UK and other parts of the world, the Conrhenny course itself is relatively short – at about 5km in length.

But don’t be deceived by this. The circuit offers a great variety of riding for both weekend warriors and cross country racing snakes - testing stamina, fitness and mental toughness across undulating forest roads, sweeping single tracks and boardwalks through the trees. And because you’ll be riding through the night, no two laps will appear the same.

You can enter in teams, pairs or as solo riders - with all solo entrants being automatically part of the 24 hour British Championships.

All riders will be issued with a timing chip to count their laps. As with all Loaghtan Loaded organised events, the emphasis is on fun and enjoyment - whether you are riding, offering family or team support, or are simply an interested spectator.

Entries are now open. Log on to www.ldlr.im and visit the entry page. All participants will receive a full custom jersey with their entry.

As  Longest Day, Longest Ride partners, we are here to handle all your travel booking and accommodation requirements, if you are coming to the Isle of Man from the UK, Ireland or further afield.  But be advised, places are booking up fast for this hugely popular event, so it would pay to get your wheels into motion sooner rather than later!

Meanwhile, if you want to make a donation to one of the many charities associated with the Longest Day, Longest Ride, visit the dedicated www.ldlr.im charity page.
