Isle of Wight named a top place to cycle

The Isle of Wight has been named one of the top five places in the world to cycle, perhaps encouraging those who love to travel on two wheels to book holidays to the island.

According to TNT magazine, the Isle of Wight is the fourth best location on the planet for cycling, with Bolivia, Morocco, Danube and Malaysia making up the rest of the top five.

The publication described the island as "young" and "trendy" as a result of events such as Bestival which have helped to shape a new reputation for the Isle of Wight.

"You can bike around its diverse terrain without losing any hard-earned street cred," said TNT.

It added that there are 11 award-winning beaches on the Isle of Wight, as well as some great gastropubs, so there are plenty of places to stop during a cycling holiday.

The island hosts the Isle of Wight Cycling Festival every September, attracting hundreds of people to book Isle of Wight holidays.
