We start the description of this ride in Ryde where there is a pier that is well worth exploring.
1. From the pier (facing inland) turn left onto the Esplanade and turn right (second exit) on the roundabout to Dover St. After 400 meters turn right onto Park Rd. After 250 meter turn left onto High St which turns into Upton Rd and takes you all the way into Upton where there is a roundabout.
2. Cross straight over the roundabout onto Gatehouse Rd which turns into Decons Ln and follow Decons Ln till you reach the junction with Ashey Rd.
3. Turn right onto Ashey Rd and then first left onto Green Ln which leads into West Ln and Coach Ln all the way into Brading.
4. Ride down Brading High St following the road round to the left and on out of town to a cross roads where you turn right, up the hill, onto Lower Adgeston Rd which peels off to the left (but more like straight over) after 100 yards.
5. Follow Lower Adgeston Rd for about a mile and a half till you reach Adgestone Camp Site. Take the first left after the camp site and follow the road for 300 meters till you see white gates on each side of the road leading to the cycle track. Turn right onto the cycle track in the direction of Newport.
6. Follow the cycle track first to Alverstone, where you cross a road, and then to the edge of Newchurch which is where you meet a second road.
Newchurch has an excellent pub for lunch called the Pointer Inn. To reach it turn left off the cycle track and ride up into the centre of Newchurch. Alternatively, the Garlic Farm offer lunches with a garlic twist a little further along our route.
7. Leave the cycle track at Newchurch and turn right onto the road going North. After a short way, where the road forks, take the left road up Mersley Ln past the Garlic Farm and bear right onto Lime Kiln Shute. Follow the shute to the main road which you cross onto Rowlands Ln. Follow Rowlands Ln for around 3 miles till you reach a junction and can turn right onto Stroud Wood Rd.
9. Follow Stroud Wood Road back to the roundabout in Upton and turn left onto Upton Rd back to Ryde. On the edge of Ryde take a left onto West Street where you can follow sighs back to Ryde town centre.
