    ...and significantly cheaper!

    Looks good, however I'd be tempted to replace my double espressos for the local Mirto knowing how good they are at warding off those morning dozies.

    Hi all,

    Did the New Forest Offshore and Onshore 200k over the weekend. What a great ride that is. A circuit of the Isle of Wight that cut through the middle to avoid the hills around Ventnor. The road surfaces on the IoW are so smooth. Jumped on the chain link ferry to make the river crossing at Cowes and then continued on to make the 13:oohrs ferry back to Lymington from where we continued the remaining half of the ride round the New Forest. This second half was supposed to be flat according to reports although it did have some climbs in it. Thoroughly recommended if any of you get the chance next year.

    Did this last year. Really enjoyed it. Pretty easy and the weather's very similar to what we get in the UK. I pretty much winged the stops en route. Seemed to work out well though maybe plan the boat rides if poss to make sure you don't miss the last one of the day. I took the unusual combination of a tarp tent and a non waterproof ultra light bivvi bag for flexibility. Never used my tarp tent once which was ~700g of wasted weight and the lightweight bivvi was used in the clouds so I woke up (never really slept) soaked one night. Slept inside a McDonalds too because of the 5 or 4 hour (can't remember) min stopping time but that was my bad planning. Still benefitted from a proper breakfast as soon as I woke up :) It's great you'll love it.
