Cycling on the Isle of Wight
There are over 200 miles of cycle routes through the countryside or along the coast.
Don't want to bring your own bike? There are plenty of places that offer bike hire with free delivery to Cowes.

In the gated garden at the rear of Firefly House (accessed by a passage) there is an external hose for hosing down bikes and footgear, and electric sockets for charging electrical cycles. We also have a bicycle pump, puncture repair kit and tools available to borrow during your stay. There is a selection of maps and guides in the house for your to browse and borrow.
