The Cycle Route

The route covered by PedalAid is the Isle of Wight part of National Cycle Route 23, following the full Red Squirrel Trail, which goes from Cowes to Sandown, then loops back through Shanklin and Godshill before rejoining the main route near Merstone. The full route is 33.7km (21 miles).

Most of it is flat and easy going, suitable for all bike types, making it a great commuter route as well as a very enjoyable leisure route.
