Isle of Wight Day-trip
The Wight Wizz
Provisionally the 13th May. The Wight Wizz is an away day ride on the Isle of Wight.
This is a great social day out cycling around the beautiful island, enjoying quiet roads, varied terrain, tea + cake stops, and fish and chips at the end. We have an early start to drive down and park at Southampton docks, arriving in time to get kitted-up and catch the 8:00am Red Funnel ferry to East Cowes. We get breakfast on the ferry and arrive on the island at 9:00am, then set off to follow most of the marked cycle route around the island, making one or two stops for tea/coffee and cakes and even ice cream on the way, arriving back in West Cowes mid-afternoon where traditionally we relax in the sun eating fish and chips. The route is about 100km in all but there are options to make it shorter if people want.
With so many active members now we will split into at least two groups (minimum of A and B/C ability groups) depending on numbers.
Tim Hart co-ordinating.
More details soon.
