Skye is one of the top ten islands for cycling, according to a list by Active Traveller.  

They cite Skye's "barren, craggy landscapes" and highlight the Trotternish peninsula as a must visit location.  

They describe the landscapes as being "shaded a thousand hues of brown, dripped with a thin, deserted ribbon of tarmac, backed by foreboding, dark grey mountains."

Also mentioned is stunt rider, Danny MacAskill's, 2015 video The Ridge, showing him riding the Cuillin Ridge - and a reminder not to attempt to copy him: "But don’t even think of riding there yourself – this ridge is considered one of the most extreme ridge scrambles in the world…" 

Skye is mentioned along with other islands, including Iceland, Tenerife and Mallorca.  

The full list can be seen here.
