yeah there's a good gravel loop available although that is still on my to do list
Here's my edited highlights of Sunday's ride
Smells Like Summer
Is there a link to the gravel route?
I can give you two as it happens. I haven't ridden either but the first one has been ridden by mates and they really enjoyed it
and the second is from this interesting & in-depth accompanying article
I grew up on the Island and devised this a couple of years ago, with a view to it joining the Racing Collective calendar. It takes in the 5 highest points of the Island (hence a couple of out and backs) and is a pretty big day out...
Many thanks. That second route looks ace to combine with an overnight stop.
I think that's more or less the route we did. Over 2 days. We extended it a bit so rather than taking the direct route back to Ryde on day 2, we did more in the middle and hugged the east coast after that.
One of us did it on a gravel bike. Although he was complaining about some of the bumpier surfaces by the end.
Having ridden the road loop too, I'd choose the off road option 10 times out of 10. Unless it's wet.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
