Isle of Wight 'has 200 miles of cycling paths'

Cyclists heading to the Isle of Wight this summer have been informed that the island has 200 miles of cycling paths, as well as a dozen marked routes for them to try out.

The Isle of Wight Cycling Festival draws many to the island every year and in 2010 was named as one of the world's best cycling routes by the Best in Travel Guide, which is published by The Lonely Planet.

Taking place from September 17th 2011 and running until September 26th, the Isle of Wight Council is hoping to use the event to promote the island's environmental qualities.

Claire Critchison, Isle of Wight Council events officer, said: "If you are an experienced cyclist and would like to share your favourite route with others then we would love to hear from you."

The event is looking for volunteer cycle ride leaders to guide novices around the various trails this summer.

One of the highlights is set to be the Cycle the Wight Challenge, which features 70-mile, 50-mile and 15-mile routes.
