Isle of Wight & Randonnee Weekend - Saturday 30th April / Monday 2nd May (Bank Holiday) 2011

Tim and Judy are organising a weekend on the Isle of Wight over the 1st May Bank Holiday next year to coincide with the annual Randonnee 100 km cycle ride on Sunday 1st May. Details are on http://www.cycleisland.co.uk & click on route.

The plan is to leave cars at Lymington (overflow park at the port is about £30 for 3 days), cross by ferry to Yarmouth (http://www.WightLink.co.uk) & cycle across the island (about 18 miles depending on the route) to Shanklin & stay 2 nights. We would then return on the Monday (various possible routes) to Yarmouth for the return home.

Geoff & Penny and Don & Iris have kindly said it may be possible for them to take camping equipment in their vehicles if they drive across the island on a shared cost basis.

John Rowland has offered to look at various off-road possibilities including a Sunday option for those who prefer not to do the Randonnee.

Further details will follow but it would help if those interested could let Tim & Judy know so we have an initial indication of numbers & if so, whether camping or B&B is preferred.

Tim is happy to try and make B&B reservations as long as people notify him by the end of September - thereafter people will have to make their own bookings.

Can those wanting the camping option please also book direct themselves as they will likely want more information & there is unlikely to be an availability problem.
