Route 7 - Ryde
This ride starts at Ryde Pier head and undulates through the countryside, passing by Haven Street (Which is a good stop for the Steam Railway) and the town of Brading. Once your out of Ryde town the scenery is very much that of countryside. It's a challenging ride that is mainly on road with the only off road section a little of the former railway line which connects Cowes to Sandown.
Distance: 25KM / 15 Miles
