Sink or Swim

Cycle the Medina Fun Race

Saturday 18th September 2010 at 10:30am

Set sail to the Isle of Wight and give Sink or Swim a go! Sink or Swim is a "ride" across the River Medina where riders navigate a pedal powered vessel across the river avoiding the water below!

Last years event was once again alot of fun and you can see what they got up to by following this link. Footage very kindly recorded by Christian Beasley

Back again to cause mayhem on the river Medina is the infamous Sink or Swim event. Riders navigate a pedal-powered vessel across the river avoiding the water below! Entrants are encouraged to build their own pedal-powered bike/boat, take to the river and race against each other.
If you think that you could invent a machine to pedal your way across the Medina for this year's race, either as an individual or team, then please download the registration form, telephone 01983 823070 or contact us. There will be prizes for the fastest crossing as well as the most beautifully dressed vessel.

This event is fun for all the family and spectators will have the opportunity to ride one of our Cycling Festival Swans after the "riders" have taken to the water. A safety craft will be on hand to make sure everyone is safe and sound!
