IW MTB Centre
The Isle of Wight’s first dedicated mountain bike trail centre is now open at Cheverton Farm near Shorwell.
The farm’s owner has worked with a number of organisations to develop the site, which builds on the trails that were constructed for the Island Games held on the Isle of Wight in 2011.

Cyclists will be asked to pay for either a day or seasonal permit; the money will go towards maintenance and development of the track and for the cover of public liability insurance.
A circular trail of approximately three miles of downhill and singletrack has been constructed by the farm with help from keen cyclists and local bike shop Wight Mountain. The Isle of Wight Council has helped to co-ordinate the project which has also involved the NHS, Cycle Wight, CTC, British Cycling and Natural England.
The centre is based on private farmland, providing cyclists with challenging rider-built jumps and berms, weaving through woodland.
