3* Isle of Wight Special 3* Add to Calendar
Contact:
Katherine Boyce - 07817 727563
Start Time:
8:00 am
Start Location:
Lymington Pier
Description:
Based on the ride that John Talbot did for many years, this uses what I think was the nicest of the rides he did. Although this is just over a 100km riding with just shy of 1400m of climbing, done at the right pace, this is a very accessible ride that takes in the best of the Isle of Wight. Glorious views, swooping hills and a ferry ride at Cowes (�£1), what more could you ask for .

PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO COME NUMBERS ARE LIMITED TO 12. However if there is enough interest we will try and put on 2 groups. UPDATE ON NUMBERS: We're now up to 11 riders. Please let me know as soon as possible if you are thinking of coming so we can consider setting up 2 groups.

We will catch the 08:40 ferry from Lymington Pier (SO41 5SB). We will travel as day return foot passengers (�ᅵ�£17 for adults and �ᅵ�£12.70 for 60+, tickets can be bought online in advance or at the ticket office before sailing. Alternatively if there are 10 or more of us we can buy a group ticket at �ᅵ�£15 per person), bikes are carried free of charge. The crossing takes 40 minutes. There is a pay and display car park at the ferry terminal (�ᅵ�£8 for 2-16hrs). Bring enough change for the machines or alternatively you can use Ringgo to pay for your ticket, see here http://www.wightlink.co.uk/go/isle-of-wight-ferry-routes-destinations/lymington-yarmouth-ferry/.

You must arrive at least 30mins before the ferry to allow time for parking, buying tickets and boarding. Boarding commences 15 minutes before sailing. We will car share as much as possible.

There is limited food on the ferry (tea, coffee, cakes, toast) but there is a cafe at the ferry terminal if you want to arrive early enough to grab some breakfast!

We'll stop at the Old World Tea Rooms in Godshill for a late morning cuppa/comfort break. Lunch stop will be at the Toll Gate Cafe next to the harbour in Bembridge. We'll aim to stop for an afternoon tea/ice cream and comfort break at Cowes dependant on the time. Return ferry will either be the 17:05 or 18:05 from Yarmouth.

I've provided last years route below, this may change in the coming months.
