Mountain Biking and Cycling on the Isle of Man

Where else in the British Isles can you scale the peaks and explore rugged coastline all in one day? All the beauty and diversity of the British Isles can be found here on the Isle of Man.

We believe there’s no better place in the British Isles for mountain biking, whether its competition you seek or just an opportunity to explore. The Manx landscape can be challenging, but riders are rewarded with stunning views. There are many events staged over the year, including a downhill series, junior events and the famous End 2 End Mountain Bike Challenge. The numerous forest trails on the Island provide great terrain for time trials.

You don’t have to be a racer like Mark Cavendish or Peter Kennaugh to enjoy cycling the roads of the Isle of Man: the beauty and diversity of the Manx countryside make it attractive to cyclists of all ages and abilities.

Bikes can be carried at modest cost on both the Steam Railway and Manx Electric Railway, subject to space being available. It is recommended that you check in advance whether space is available by phoning +44 1624 663366.

DONT FORGET that bicycles travel FREE of charge on the ferry but with a Steam Packet Holidays package you pay just a small supplement to bring your car - your bike can be carried on a rack attached to the vehicle.
