Meet at the IOW car ferry in Old Portsmouth at 08.45 for 9am ferry.

Snack/breakfast on the ferry as no elevenses stop. We will follow the Round the Island route clockwise i.e go east first towards Bembridge. Lunch at Niton at 27 miles - probably the Buddle Inn. We'll stop at Yarmouth for tea, a further 18 miles, and then back to the ferry (further 20 miles) which goes every hour on the hour. Its a long and hilly ride and we may be back late - I'm not expecting to get the return ferry until 1800.

Current forecast is good - you may even need the sunscreen!

About Tuesday rides

The Tuesday rides are typically 60-80 miles at a moderately fast pace while maintaining the social nature of the Saturday and Wednesday rides. The rides will start at various locations to be determined by the individual ride leader.
