Produced in co-operation with Visit Isle of Wight and using Ordnance Survey cartography under licence, this new edition of our full colour cycle map of the Island (updated 2016) is overlaid with 15 clearly marked colour-coded cycle routes covering all ages and abilities, from multi-day circuits of the Island to short rides out, perfect for little legs. Take on the challenge of the Chalk Ridge Extreme along the Tennyson Trail, described by the Good Mountain Biking Guide as 'probably the best chalk trail in the UK' or head off on a Round the Island adventure, stopping off at visitor attractions and local eateries as you please. There are also plenty of gentle family rides, like the popular Red Squirrel Trail, which take you along disused rail lines and scenic estuaries, and along woodland tracks, rich in wildlife.
As well as the routes, the map includes details of bike shops and services - from bike hire and sales to emergency repairs, luggage transfer and tours and holidays - as well as a useful list of cycle-friendly accommodation across the Island, from hotels and cosy B&Bs to hostels and self-catering hideaways.
The map also features seven large-scale inset plans, showing cycle routes through the main town centres, and includes a range of useful visitor information from cafes and pubs to electric bike charge points, car parks, visitor attractions and viewpoints. In addition, the entire network of cycle paths and bridlepaths are also shown enabling cyclists to join together sections of routes or devise their own routes should they wish to do so.
