A return to the Isle of Wight, Sunday 24 June
Never too early to get these dates into your diary. Last summer we drove down, did the tour and rode back on the Sunday. This year we are planning an “IoW Plus” event. Here are the basic details. Email the leader to let him know your preference jon.adsett@yahoo.co.uk.

Ferry leaves Lymington 9:15. Return from Yarmouth on the 5:20pm or 6:20pm ferry. Bike free, book at https://book.wightlink.co.uk/book/journey/traveldetails/

  • Option1 – ride down on Friday and Saturday, overnight camp or b&b on Friday and Saturday
  • Option 2 – drive down on Saturday morning for a led ride, b&b overnight and ride the IoW tour on Sunday
  • Option 3 – drive down early on the Sunday morning (as we did last year) to catch the 9:15 ferry for the IoW tour.
