Going to the Isle of Wight for the Island Games, anyone know places to ride, things to do, bike shops ect?

    Lots of good xc riding... We did a MBR route which turned out to be a bit of an epic - I think we did about 37 miles in total :shock:

    It all looks very pretty but the hills are BIG!

    Just found this http://www.extremists.co.uk/guide.html

    There's a good network of marked bridleways, and as the site above says Brighstone Forest is definitely worth a visit :D

    We tried to follow a route from a magazine which was ok, but to be honest I wish we had just got a proper map and headed out!

    It's nice riding - vagely like the Purbecks in my opinion :D
