Route 8 - Ryde

A nice ride that encompasses both the coast of the North East tip of the Island with some more inland countryside.  Starting in Ryde and going through the villages of Seaview, St Helens, Bembridge and Brading it offers something for everyone along the way.  There is an alternative shortcut that cuts out the Bembridge section.

Distance: 25KM / 15 Miles or Shorter Route 19KM / 12 Miles
