Part III: On your bike!

“The Isle of Wight is tailor-made for cycling… It’s a year-round cyclist’s paradise with some amazing views and dramatic, contrasting landscapes”

Martin Sanders, Performance Cycling Coach

With over 200 miles of cycle trails and paths, cycling is the perfect way for you and your children to take in the Isle of Wight’s idyllic beauty. From relaxing beachside rides through to challenging forest tracks, the Island’s varied scenery is what makes it such a fantastic location for cyclists to explore and enjoy.

At West Bay, our team of qualified trail leaders have mapped out some recommended cycling routes to make sure you get the most out of your cycling experience. There are options for all levels of ability, so whether you’re a budding Chris Froome, or just itching to get in the saddle and explore, there really is something for everyone.

Aside from being a fantastic way to see the island, cycling is a low-impact and healthy way for people of all ages to exercise. It boosts fitness, torches fat and tones your muscles, leading to a strong, flexible physique. Most importantly, cycling is great fun for your whole family. Coasting through the Island’s narrow lanes or blasting along its clifftop paths will give you a real natural buzz.

With so much on offer, this experience is sure to make your stay at West Bay an unforgettable one. So what are you waiting for? For more information about cycle hire and our recommended routes, click here.
