No room for misinterpretation here!

Ryde Pier surface detail, showing roadway and pedestrian lane.

Footpath closed because it has collapsed into the sea!

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign on the gate at Totland Bay, but the path has fallen into the sea further along, so not much use for cycling!

A sign I almost missed at the start of the railway path between Yarmouth and Freshwater.

A sign forbidding horses and cycling on the footpath (which provides only a slightly shorter route up the hill cutting a corner), plus another forbidding parking and mining!

During a break in the railway path, NCN 23 utilises this lane which has unmarked speed humps at intervals along it.

The railway path near Merstone, with the off-ramp for the Sunshine Trail towards Wroxall.

The left fork links onto the railway path, where there is a separate parallel path for horses.

The so called Sunshine Trail cycle route towards Wroxall forks left from the track, passing to the left of the waymarker post. There is no proper path, just a signposted route across a field of livestock.

Quite frankly the worst section of "cycle route" I've been along in ages. The Sunshine Trail is signed across a field of livestock. There is not even a properly formed path. Avoid!

Route signs for the Red Squirrel Trail and some other cycle route, but I thought I was following the Sunshine Trail!

A route sign for the so called "Sunshine Trail".

Path along former railway line between Shanklin and Wroxall.

A road closure where cyclists and pedestrians have been exempted. The two plastic barriers are placed so cyclists can cycle around them.

Public conveniences, plus steps up to the top of the cliff.

The cycle route continues past the gate along the concrete walkway. There is cycle hire from the hut on the left.

This clifftop path towards Sandown isn't particularly suitable for cycling and is accessed through a couple of kissing gates.

Wheel-grabber cycle parking in Bembridge

A traffic-calming chicane on The Duver, with a narrow gap for bikes. Going around the chicane looked easier than using the gap.

Cyclists must use the walkway and negotiate the chicane barriers to get around the traffic boom and exit the pier (see also #66744).

Cyclists have to go through these chicane barriers to get around the traffic booms at the entrance to the pier roadway (see also #66746).

Cycle parking near the ice-rink and hovercraft terminal. Also visible are some lorry-loads of crowd control barriers for a cycle race event taking place the next day.

Cycle parking for the miniature castle!

A cyclist heading for the Portsmouth Catamaran at the head of Ryde Pier. The pier is open for light vehicles (toll payable) and cyclists (free). This is not a vehicle ferry so the cars can drop or meet passengers only. However, there is ple ... [more]

Cyclists Dismount to board the Yarmouth-Lymington ferry.

Cycle stands at the tourist information centre and toilets, Yarmouth IOW - but I didn't notice any other cycle parking there.
