Ferry and food info for the IoW day ride on the 28th May

There is a festival in Yarmouth on the 28th so we are recommending that you book your tickets in advance we will be catching the 9.00 am ferry out and suggest you book the 17.05 return. (We have always been able to catch an earlier ferry if we arrive at the port in time). Ferry cost £21 but you can use Tesco club points For Tickets https://www.wightlink.co.uk/tickets/foo ... er-tickets.

Please be ready to load at 8.45 - people have missed the ferry!

Parking is £9 for the day but you can park in Lymington for less (£5 Long Stay car parks) or you might find some on-street parking without restrictions on a Sunday. (Allow time to get to the ferry!!)

The medium group are taking sandwiches and if time will have a tea and cake stop in the afternoon

The fast group ride leaders will confirm if a pub lunch or sandwiches nearer the time.

NB this is a hard ride and not suitable for newbies to mountain biking. The medium group will be riding approx 30miles with 1,000m of climbing - but do able by any regular medium group rider we have all day and the views are worth it.
