Cowes for lunch?

Well, OK, maybe not a whole one?!

We are hatching a plan for a day trip over to the Isle of Wight in June and would like to gauge interest before making any ferry and lunch bookings. There are now 13 confirmed riders and 3 probable/likely/tentatives.

Here’s the plan:

  • Date: Wednesday 5th June
  • Cycle from Highcliffe Castle to Lymington Ferry c.11 miles (you can meet us at the Ferry if you prefer)
  • Ferry: 10:00 Lymington – Yarmouth
  • Cycle from Yarmouth to Cowes c.14 miles
  • Pub lunch
  • Cycle Cowes – Yarmouth c.14 miles
  • Ferry: 17:05 Yarmouth- Lymington
  • Cycle back to Highcliffe, should be back about 19:00. c.11 miles
  • The last time we did a day trip over we managed to get on the earlier ferry back, but no promises this time
  • Total mileage from Highcliffe Castle and back c.50
  • Terrain: all road
  • Refreshments are available on the ferry both ways
  • Depart from Highcliffe 08:30am for the 10:00am ferry
  • Cost:  Ferry c. £17 each return, plus your lunch. The lunch stop is still being researched, but if you have any suggestions, please let Gill know
  • We need you to have paid this into the club account as soon as possible, absolute latest 3rd May so Gill can purchase the tickets and secure bike spaces
  • For those who have not yet confirmed, please note if payment is not made by 3rd May, we will assume you will not be coming
