This picturesque gravel cycle path is a flat easy way to explore the Western Yar valley as it cuts through the western tip of the island from Freshwater Bay to Yarmouth, following the river Yar. It's a great introduction to cycling for the family with refreshment options at each end and plenty to see. Parking is the only pain at this end - it's easier from Yarmouth.
