|I will be arranging a drive & ride day out to the Isle of Wight on Sunday 19th May (the Sunday after the Birmingham Velo).
This involves an early start for the 2 hour (approx) drive to the Red Funnel Terminal at Southampton Docks where we park our cars in time to catch the 8.00am ferry to Cowes which takes 1 hour to cross to East Cowes for a 9.30 depart from West Cowes for the 100K circumnavigation of the island.
The return ferry costs £11.80 over 60 or £17.60 adult and food is available. Breakfast recommended.
There are several local car parks but the best value (£8 for the day) is located in Gloucester Square Car Park, 16 Gloucester Square, Southampton SO14 2GH.
The route is marked and usually ridden clockwise which I have on my Garmin.
It would be good to know what interest there is in joining me for this ride which usually gets back to Cowes in time for fish & chips on the quayside before catching the return ferry at 4.30pm.
