Make your way to our hotel in Douglas, relax and get ready for tomorrow’s riding. If you need assistance with the ferry to the Isle of Man, we are able to help with that.
Starting in Douglas, head down the east coast towards Castledown and on to Saint Mary. If you want to add extra mileage, follow the Sound Road down to the southern tip of the island, before looping back north towards Port Erin. From here, the only real climbing of the day will see you ride slightly inland topping out at about 400m of ascent. You will then head towards Glen Maye before lopping back to St Johns and across the island back to Douglas
If you fancy a challenge, the lap of the island is achievable in a day. Starting in Douglas, head south to Saint Mary via Castledown, before looping up the west coast from Peel. You will loop round the northern part of the island to Bride before heading inland to Andreas, Ramsey and back to Douglas.
Forests, hilltops and single tracks will take you to Port Erin where you can stop to explore this picturesque coastal town before continuing on to The Sound at the southern end of the Island. You’ll pause for lunch overlooking the Sound tidal race before continuing on to explore nearby folk village Cregneash and
then to Port St Mary. A transfer will take you back to your accommodation before you depart the island.
Home to The Manx Missile, Mark Cavendish, the Isle of Man has become synonymous with road cycling. The island is the perfect destination for a cycling break with long fast roads for road cyclists and a huge amount of varying terrain to challenge off road cyclists. E-mountain biking is also huge popular on the island and will help you get off the beaten track.
