Floating Bridge to Start of Cycle Track

A lot of people may be coming across from East Cowes on the floating bridge. This section takes you from the floating bridge up to the start of the Cowes to Newport cycle track.

It is all on road, following back streets through Cowes.

There’s a bit of an uphill as you go up Bridge Street, but nothing too steep and it is only short.
