If you really want to see the world then the only way to do it is by bike. Take a look at our top ten cycling routes that any cycling enthusiast will love.
Isle of Wight
If you don’t want to venture too far, then the Isle of Wight is the perfect cycling destination. With plenty of lush green hills and fabulous coastline, you’ll never have a dull day – and there’s plenty of pubs, bars, restaurants and great places to stay too.
Tasmanian West Coast
If you want untamed wilderness then Tasmania is for you. This relatively small island features a host of amazing sites like Cradle Mountain, Montezuma Falls and Lake St Clair. Beware, the hilly terrain can be gruelling but it’s well worth it.

Situated off the coast of Washington, each of these islands can be cycled in just one day. Explore the forests, rugged coastline and historical sites and watch out for wildlife including otters and sea lions.
County Clare, Ireland
The dramatic cliffs and golden sandy beaches are enough to attract any cyclist, but this area is made truly special by the towns Doolin and Milltown Malbay, where you can enjoy live Irish music at various venues on most days of the year.
La Farola, Cuba
Thrill seekers will love a trip down the cliff road leading from the Baracoa mountains to the south coast. Enjoy views of lush forests and green valleys on your nine mile descent.
National Highway 1, Vietnam
Vietnam’s most popular cycling route stretches the entire length of the country and takes in the wonderful coastlines, lush rice fields and pine clad mountains.

Starting at the town of Dunedin, you can tackle this route in one day. With steep climbs and fast descents this route will certainly get your adrenalin pumping.
Cape Breton Island, Canada
The spectacular rocky coastline of this island has made it one of the world’s most popular cycling hotspots. Be prepared for your ENVE rims to take in some tough climbs and daring descents and look out for wildlife including moose and deer.
