We welcome cyclists and offer secure storage for bikes in our lockable shed.
We are located almost midway between Cowes and Sandown on the Cowes-Sandown off road cycle route and the island bus network radiates from Newport making return or recovery via public transport viable.
A pleasant circular route for families in Summer is to cycle to Wootton and then take the steam train to Smallbrook Junction – the train has a traditional guard’s van and welcomes cyclists – and then the Island Line comprising old London Tube trains to Ryde and thereafter return from Ryde – Newport via the cycleway which is mainly off-road.
The island is also signposted clockwise and anticlockwise for the Round the Island cycle route.
