Isle of Man Cycling Holidays
Isle of Man Road Cycling
Follow in the tyre tracks of an Olympic gold medallist and Tour de France stage winner, taking in the varied colourful countryside, spectacular coastal views and pretty glen valleys along the way. With the sea breeze flowing through your hair, enjoy the seaside pedalling along Douglas town promenade which runs the entire length of the beach front.
Explore the Island and discover nature at leisure on the beautiful quiet country lanes or take one of the six designated cycle tracks, namely Ramsey, Castletown, Peel, Laxey, Port Erin and Douglas. Along the way are signs giving information about the area, local wildlife, flora and fauna.
Most cycling trails start and end on the railways routes and bikes can be taken on board the steam railway and the Manx Electric Railway for a small charge subject to space being available.
Isle of Man Mountain Biking
Whether its competition you seek, or just an opportunity to explore, the Manx landscape can be as challenging as you choose. Where else can you scale mountainous peaks to be rewarded with magnificent countryside and coastal views in just one ride?
Cyclists of all levels of ability are catered for with a range of trails to suite those who like to test themselves and their machines, or for those who just want a leisurely ride. Numerous forest trails also provide great terrain for time trials.
The Isle of Man welcomes hundreds of visiting mountain bikers each year from around the world for a number of cycling events including the prestigious End 2 End Mountain Bike Challenge which sees cyclists race from one end of the Island to the other taking in 75km of climbing with a thrilling mix of fast roads, sweeping paths and country lanes.
