Kickstart the festive season by joining the most spectacular bike event on the Island this Christmas! We need you – yes you – to dress up yourself and your bike, and join us at the Grandstand, Douglas, for a charity ride like no other!

We need to get going at 11am, so come down early if you need a bit of time or help getting fully prepared.
In Douglas doing your Christmas shopping on Saturday? Come and join us on the Prom to cheer on our Santas, join the festivities and donate to a worthy cause!
For anyone in the South of the Island, the best place to join in the fun and see our Santas on their bikes is Castletown square, where we will be collecting money and cheering on our heroes!

Santa’s on a Bike combines fun and festivities with the serious issue of raising money for a great local cause. Rebecca House is a children’s wing in the Hospice, Isle of Man. It’s a purpose-built facility that provides respite, palliative and end-of-life care for children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. And it needs our support!
It costs £300 a day to provide a bed in Hospice. Rebecca House offers the highest possible standards of care and support to each child and their families to enable them to cope with their illness and lead as full and normal life as possible. 83p of every pound is spent directly on patient care, so every penny you raise will have an impact on people’s lives when they need it the most.
