had a few comments back regarding some of the rides i have been on recently and did i want to go for a ride and times, dates etc so i thought why not the possibility of an Isle of Wight ride.
was thinking the 7th of december, a sunday. say about a 930am ish ferry if we want a lunch stop (ferry takes about 35-40 minutes)
the ride being initially from lymington ferry terminal, day crossing is about 11 quid. pick up the coastal route towards headon warren and then alum bay up and over to freshwater and then up on to the golf course
at this point about 11 miles those with time constraints could take a short cut back to the ferry if needed, for the rest we can carry on over the golf course and keep going eventually stopping at the red shoot inn for munchies maybe? then return via a similar route back towards freshwater and down the causeway back to the ferry, and possibly a quick apres ride pint in salties, a small pub while waiting for the ferry! i reckon that about 25 miles all in and it's quite an up and down route, you'll need good brakes for this ride and i wouldn't bring a single speed, you'll kill your knees!
retro rides preffered but not essential! ride what you want! helmets recommended!
please note this will not be a super fast training ride! i'm not slow but i'm far from quick!!
i'll post a few recent pics so you can get an idea of the terrain, nothing to technical but steep in paces, terrain varies from some tarmac but not alot, gravel tracks, bridleways, grass, chalky tracks and of course some mud!
go on you know you want to!!!
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
