edit! the date is the 16th! i hope as many can do that date as poss!

10am ferry! so try and be there by 930am as you would need time to sort a ticket, sort car park and assemble bikes etc!

SO41 5SB is the postcode for the ferry port. think the ticket is £13 now and the car park charge is about £5, i hinted they were taking the piss about this now but it fell on deaf ears!


---------------------------------------------------------
so i have been meaning to sort another IOW ride for a while but work has been a nightmare just recently so after a couple of PM's asking i have looked into what dates i can do.

there was a request for a saturday ride as trains etc are easier to sort out to get to the terminal so i have 2 dates as possibilities

22nd or 29th of september! plenty of notice then!! :oops: :D

i'd imagine it will be the usual times etc, 10am ferry from lymington terminal

so come on! who's up for it?!!
:D :D

p.s retro would be nice but i'd prefer you there with whatever you want to ride, if i have it i'll be riding my Demon 8)

Went out last night on the Rat with a few of my mates including Fest and Lookback, everyone rode Modern bling and could not catch the Rat :lol: here is a little snippet in HD if you have the bandywidth :wink:

Thanks for thinking of me and PM'ing me :cool:

Not wanting to be awkward and come with yet another excuse for missing a retro ride, buuuut.... I'm waiting to here from work as to whether I can have the 22nd/23rd off for the hills killer event on the 23rd... http://www.sunseaandcycling.com/hills-killer.aspx If I can get that weekend off I will be resting/prepping stuff on the Saturday in readiness for the Sunday :lol: If I do get that weekend off there's no hope of getting the next one off too :(
