Fancy stretching your legs this Sunday? 100 or 50KM routes over lovely varied terrain with plenty of special views – why not join nearly 2500 other cyclists for a free non competitive annual event which has got to be good for your training – right?
All the details can be found at https://www.cycleisland.co.uk/ together with a link to a special day trip price with Red Funnel. (The GPX files are also located here if you wish to download one)
Either meet at the ferry terminal for the 8:00am ferry (you can park West Quay car park all day for £5.00) or this year as an option we will also be meeting at 07:15 at Riverside Car Park (free parking all day), at 299 Woodmill Ln, Southampton SO18 2JR
From there it is a 15-20 minutes ride to the the Red Funnel Ferry Terminal, where we will arrive by 07:45 for the 08:00 crossing to East Cowes
Tickets for the ferry can be bought on the day but it is often busy so suggest you use the Cycle Island link above and get the special travel price.
In past years we have usually made it back home on the 16:30 crossing from East Cowes, although sometimes have been on the 15:30 or 17:30, depending on weather, pace, cake stops etc
ALSO: The Southampton Marathon is also running on this day and some roads are closing early – please take this into account if you are travelling direct to the terminal.
