TV WILDLIFE PRESENTER GETS ON HIS BIKE TO SHOWCASE THE ISLE OF WIGHT

Published:

Wightlink recently invited wildlife-lover, TV presenter and Isle of Wight fan, Nick Baker, to cross the Solent and take travellers on a cycle tour to visit his favourite spots and find out more about the Island’s exciting environmental initiatives.

The cross-Solent operator has invested in the production of the video as part of its promotion of holidays on the Island.

In the video, Nick travels to the Island on Wightlink’s hybrid flagship Victoria of Wight and cycles along the coastal trail. He speaks to experts from the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust about plans to reintroduce beavers and Forestry England about the return of spectacular white-tailed eagles. Nick also stays overnight in a cottage in Ventnor, visits the Needles, meets red squirrels and enjoys a meal at The George in Yarmouth.

Keith Greenfield, Chief Executive of Wightlink, says:

“We were delighted to host Nick Baker on the Isle of Wight. His enthusiasm for the Island’s natural beauty shines through in this video and we’re pleased that Nick had such a terrific time.

“Cycling is one of the best ways to explore the Island’s country lanes and bikes go free on all of our ferries, so viewers can easily hop on and follow Nick’s trail.”

Nick says:

“The Isle of Wight has always been a very special place to me and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Wightlink to highlight to visitors how easy and enjoyable it is to access the Island and to experience a break that’s quite unlike anywhere else in the UK.

“I’ve loved every minute of my first getaway post-lockdown and hope to inspire others to do the same.”

If you don’t like living on a holiday island move.and I assume you never go on holiday if you do hopefully locals think the same of you.

At least it wasn’t that murdering ‘animal loving’ ‘conservationist’ activist Packham and his cronies.

Seriously I think its about time the council invested some serious money into the cycling infrastructure on the island as they keep selling it as cycling friendly island when it’s along way from that. I personally don’t have any issues with 90% of cyclists. it’s the “roadie lycra lout” ones that cause the most issues thay don’t care about holding traffic up, riding in a huge groups, flicking fingers shouting abuse at people when they pass with plenty of room and pointing at the ground for some unknown reason and just ignoring every road rule going and most have an aggressive nature. So they council along with visit iow etc. need to look at safety over profit and get some infrastructure built to accommodate the cycling island they are mass promoting.
