Bike ride could be feature of Christmas Isle of Wight holiday

Families heading out on a Christmas Isle of Wight holiday in the coming days could take part in an organised bike ride to work off some of the turkey dinners they will enjoy over the festive break.

The eight-mile trip is set to get underway at 11:00 GMT on December 27th 2010 at Alverstone Village Hall near Sandown, with the trek expected to take two hours.

At the end of the journey those who have completed the trip will be rewarded with some festive treats such as mulled wine and mince pies.

Those taking Isle of Wight holidays are able to rent a bike from a local supplier especially to take part in the ride.

"This free family bike ride on roads, lanes and bridle paths will take you through some of the island's most stunning scenery," commented the organisers.

Alverstone is perhaps best-known for its area of ancient woodland, including Borthwood Lynch, which is home to wildlife including red squirrels.
