There are more specially marked cycle routes on the Isle of Wight than ever before and an effort has been made to make the Island even more attractive to cyclists. There are 12 newly installed routes which are designed to provide attractive and moderately easy cycling days out around the Isle of Wight and many of these are joined together by the network of bridal ways. Cyclists who enjoy more of a challenge and a longer ride can incorporate these routes into their own personalised routes using a good map and some recommendations.

Cycle Routes

We have divided the cycle routes into two sections. The first group are the signposted cycle routes which are are along country roads and cycle paths. The second group are bridal way and cycle path rides which are not signposted but take you further off the beaten track.

We suggest that you bring an Ordnance Survey Map with you when cycling around the Isle of Wight but especially when following the non signposted routes.

Please also ensure you are cycling safely. For your own safety you should wear a cycle helmet and you bike should be in good order. The cycle paths and bridal ways are used by walkers and horse riders. Please be considerate of other users of these routes. Lights and reflective clothing should be in low light or if there is poor visibility.
