Quiet country lanes and scenic off - road cycling routes make the Isle of Wight an ideal destination for a UK cycling holiday or short break.
There are cycling routes to suit everyone, with a choice of challenging off-road bridleways, peaceful byways and level purpose-made tracks on former railway lines.
Within an area of just 147 square miles you will find over 200 miles of cycle routes enticing you into the countryside or along the coast.
Cycles can be hired from a number of different outlets throughout the Island and there are companies that are able to offer a delivery service, guided on - or off road guided rides.
Bicycle Island is the cycling brand of the Isle of Wight, celebrating our highly reputed status as one of the top cycling destinations in the world. As part of this we have launched a series of new cycle trails and routes for you to explore - click here to find out more.
The Isle of Wight cycling routes can be broken into half-day rides or multi-day rides, depending on what you are looking to do.
Many of the half-day rides are quite easy routes that provide great family cycling days out, and explore different areas of the Island.
Click here for some ideas for day rides, half-day rides and shorter cycle routes.
If you want to fully explore the varied landscape and coastline of the Island, and want a more challenging route then you should try one of the multi-day rides, such as the Round the Island Cycle Route.
If you want a truly unique cycling experience then check out the "Red Squirrel Trail". Much of this family-friendly cycle route runs along sections of the Island's former railway track. The unmistakable leg of the trail which takes riders between Merstone and Newport features specially commisioned "Troll" sculptures and picnic benches along its length, along with lots of wildlife friendly installations to encourage birds and other wildlife.
The Isle of Wight hosts an annual Cycling Festival usually held in September/October.
The festival consists of a series of cycling events encompassing all aspects of sporting and recreational cycling.
The Isle of Wight Cycling Season serves both as a celebration of the sport and to reinforce the Island's position as a leading cycling destination.
The event offers a range of on and off road cycling challenges for all ages and abilities as well as a varied programme of entertainment for spectators.
There are a range of maps available to help explore the Island by bike, which are available to order through our website.
