For the more adventurous cyclist looking for an adrenaline rush, The Chalk Ridge Extreme offers a 50 mile track around the island’s striking cliffs and wooded bridleways, perfect if you prefer a bit of off-road biking.
The circular route will take cyclists over chalk ridges and is an invigorating challenge, taking you down difficult hills and through slippery mud and chalk, ideal for adrenaline junkies. Although some may find this route difficult, those who tackle it will certainly be rewarded with some of the most breath-taking views that the Isle of Wight has to offer.
For keen off-road cyclists, the Isle of Wight Mountain Bike Centre at Cheverton is along the way and is a real treat for mountain biking enthusiasts, with cross country tracks for a range of abilities through woodland and chalkland trails. There are three trails, each providing a unique off-road experience, complete with ramps and jumps.
You can even have a guided tour of the Chalk Ridge Extreme for a fun experience of cycling on the island. The knowledgeable and friendly guides will arrange routes suitable for you, while providing you with historical facts about the route.
