Cycling in Isle Of Wight
The Isle of Wight is a great place to cycle around with many routes for all sorts of skill levels. With a mixture of on and off road routes there really is something for everyone. From a hard days ride to family and group fun.
The Isle of Wight was tailor-made for great cycling with over 200 miles of cycle routes through some of the most scenic countryside in the UK. It’s just a short ferry crossing from the mainland, yet a real escape from everyday life with room to breathe.
With over 30 miles of Heritage Coast and half the Island designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there’s a great variety of terrain. From level countryside trails and quiet lanes to challenging hill climbs and everything in between, cyclists of all levels will enjoy an amazing pedal-powered.
Many people have the misconception that the Island is flat and this is not the case very few routes on the Island can be termed as 'flat'. Furthermore it's always better to have a lower expectation as to what is possible in an allotted time.
