We are having a buddy day ride. Meeting at the IoW Car Ferry terminal at 7.45am to catch the 8am ferry to the Isle of Wight. We can have breakfast during the sailing to Fishbourne on the IoW. We will then follow the round the Island cycle route, in a clockwise direction until we get to Sandown, Where we will chilll out and have lunch. We will then either return via the way we came or ride across the Island back to the ferry. There is also the option to take the train back to Ryde if you wish. WE ARE NOT DOING THE COMPLETE ROUND THE ISLAND ROUTE, AND NOT TAKING IN THE BIGGER CLIMBS OF THE ROUTE. This is a casual buddy style ride with plenty of stops along the way. I will post up the route that we will take to Sandown in due course. Cost of the ferry as a foot passenger (bikes are free) is £7.10 each way, and you can book online. Although you have to state a time you can return on any ferry. I would suggest booking the 8am ferry out, and the 4pm ferry back.,
BE AWARE : ALTHOUGH THE BIGGEST HILLS ARE AVOIDED, THERE ARE STILL SOME HILLS ON ROUTE.
