This is a mostly traffic-free route along one of the island's national cycle network trails, the Red Squirrel trail. There's a diversion around the eel works at Alverstone along some lanes
A third of the route is on rail trails, there are some well-ridden bridleways, including a gravelly hill at Freemantle. Road through Shanklin to the front, then along the revetement to Sandown, through town and round Alverstone/Adgestone to the cycleway back to Merstone
We shall stop at Pedallers in Newchurch for hot drinks/refreshments
Please wear helmets. Check weather and bring layers for keeping warm, gloves and warm socks.
