ABOUT

This site is for Walkers, and Mountain Bikers who want to ride, or walk, the Isle of Wight's very extensive; well sign posted, rights-of-way network.

  • All Routes where possible¬†are circular.
  • The majority of the start & Finish points are public transport friendly.
  • All Routes are listed on ViewRanger

The ideal combination would be: follow the route on ViewRanger, with a printed description, backed up with a Ordnance Survey Map.

I've created this site because I love walking, and riding offroad on the Isle of Wight.

Mountain Biking

The Isle of Wight has an enviable network of well marked Bridleways. There's plenty of climbing, and some great descents. Nothing too technical, but some of the routes will be challenging, even for the fittest rider.

All the rides are circular, and listed by their start town - followed by Ride, then the distance in kilometres.

For example:

Newport Ride 40 Kilometres

Is a ride with a length of 40 kilometres.

The routes are classified by either:

  • Easy
  • Difficult
  • Hard

This is subjective. Take note of the distance, and assume tough climbing - the Isle of Wight is not flat.

Walking

The Isle of Wight scenery is diverse - you'll never be bored. We have walks for all levels of ability, whether you are coming for the day, or longer.

Most of the Walks are circular, and listed by their start town - followed by Walk, then the distance in Kilometres.

For example:

Shanklin Walk 14 Kilometres

Is a walk with a length of 14 kilometres.

The routes have three classifications:

  • Easy
  • Difficult
  • Hard

This is subjective. Take note of the distance, and assume tough climbing - the Isle of Wight is not flat.
