Isle of Wight ride 30/09/2018
« on: August 09, 2018, 09:22:19 AM »
Thanks to Trudy, Woody and Jason.....

https://www.redfunnel.co.uk/public/bookings/view

Ferry cost this year is £35.20 return.

We will do the Isle of Wight run going from Southampton to East Cowes via Red Funnel ferries

We can catch the 09;00am ferry to get in East Cowes by 10;00 to meet Woody, Trudy and Jason.

The plan to meet at 08;15 at Rownhams services West Bound (East or West bound as we can cross the motorway via the subway) as last year then ride into Southampton centre to catch the ferry.

This is between Junctions 3 and 4 of the M27 you will need to meet Westbound side near the fuel station.


ALL WELCOME TO JOIN US NO MATTER WHAT YOU RIDE

I will have to change the meeting point as the M27 is closed near Rownhams services all next weekend. I will have a think and try to sort a suitable location.

I think the best thing is everyone to make their way to the ferry terminal but remember the M27 will be closed in both directions all weekend.
The terminal is in the centre of Southampton and well signed for the docks, IOW ferry and cruise terminals.
My number is 07973 231879 if anyone needs to get hold of me.

We will be meeting in the lay-by at the crematorium roundabout,  leaving there at 10.30.  The morning ride will take us over to the East Wight where we will be stopping for a cuppa then head off to the Wight Mouse for a 1pm lunch stop, Military Road and West Wight in the afternoon, then back to the boat.  There will be 1 petrol stop approx 35 miles into the ride.  The weather looks nice so it should be a good day. :)

I would have come but I registered for the Distinguished Gentlemans Ride in Bristol early in the year.

I took a load of photos there last year and the organisers have asked me to photo the ride to go on their website.
Photo sales proceeds going to the DGR charities.
