It’s no surprise that the great rider Mark Cavendish hails from this island; cycling on the Isle of Man is fantastic. With sea views, winding roads, light traffic and an amazingly diverse range of landscapes, no two bike rides are the same here. From family-friendly flat loops to challenging climbs up rugged hills, this diminutive island doesn’t play small when it comes to two-wheeling. 


In the south west, enjoy cycle routes to the Isle of Man’s beautiful headlands and bays of Spanish Head, Bay ny Carrickey and Castletown. Jagged rocks and sandy beaches make this coastline particularly spectacular. Fancy a tough climb? Challenge yourself by riding the hilly roads around the island’s highest mountain, Snaefell, and be rewarded with epic views. For flat rides, head to the far north where you can pedal past peaceful fields and enjoy fantastic coastal rides without the hills. With cycle paths and quiet lanes, riding here is a little slice of cycling paradise.
