Mountain biking and cycling

Special routes have also been set out for cyclists and mountain bikers. It’s easy (and fun!) to combine many of the cycle paths with ferry crossings so that you can also enjoy a bit of island hopping too. The mountain bike trails may take you off road too so watch out for the mud!

There are numerous bridleways leading to the beaches, woods and nature areas as part of the Cycle and Walking Network and there is nothing quite like riding a horse along the seashore or galloping through the surf.
