Ibiza Preservation Fund invites you to the Ibiza 2013 Round the Island Cycling Challenge. You will have two full days of cycling with the option of taking two different routes, (50km versus 90km per day), depending on your cycling ability and preference (e.g. mountain bike off road versus road race bike). After two days you will have cycled around the island, from the rugged hills in the north to the lush white beaches in the South. A tough challenge indeed!
The event is organized by Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity (GOSH) together with Ibiza Preservation Fund (IPF). All the funds raised by IPF participants will support leading environmental projects and thus help preserving the natural beauty of the island.
