*************************************************************
EDITED TO ADD INFO FOR THE RIDE TIME

I WANT US TO GET THE 10AM FERRY, WHICH MEANS WE NEED TO BE AT THE FERRY PORT FOR AROUND 9.30 AM, THIS WILL GIVE EVERYONE TIME TO ASSMBLE BIKES AND GET TICKETS SORTED, SORRY IF THIS SEEMS EARLY BUT BEAR IN MIND THAT MOST RIDES DON'T START WITH A BOAT RIDE!!! :lol:

AND SO YOU KNOW, THE FERRY WAITS FOR NO -ONE!!! WE ARE NOT FAMOUS OR RICH ENOUGH . . . . . . YET.

HERE IS A LINK FOR THE FERRY, CLICK ON "LYMINGTON PIER" FOR THE GOOGLE MAP

http://www.wightlink.co.uk/travel-infor ... -pier.aspx


ANY PROBLEMS GIVE ME A PM OR IF IT'S EASIER ASK BY PM FOR MY NUMBER

LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS, SHOULD BE A GOOD LAUGH!! :D


*************************************************************


i've had a couple of requests for another isle of wight retro ride, i have pretty much the next month off but have some commitments aswel so here's a list of dates that i can lead the ride that also (i think) don't clash with anythingelse.

sunday 19th april (my birthday! :D )
sunday 26th april
sunday 10th may CONFIRMED DATE
sunday 28th june (after mayhem!)

here's a couple of threads from the island rides to tempt you!

retro rides preferred but i don't really mind what you ride as long as you turn up.

also judging by last retro meet i would suggest a 9.30am ferry, last time we cut it really close for getting munchies at the pub

also i'll be inviting some non retro mates aswel so feel free to bring friends.

pace will be casual and not painful, distance will be 30miles i guess, last time it was about 29miles in total. also it is hilly, you will need a granny ring or wide rear cassette.

i'll do a facebook link aswel.

:D :D
