Isle of Wight Cycle Routes

The Island offers the cyclist dedicated cycleways - many following the course of disused railway lines, signed routes, miles of bridleways and quiet country lanes as an alternative to busy main roads. If you would like details of the Round the Island cycle route, please call Isle of Wight Tourism 01983 813818 and a route map will be sent out to you.
