This will be a day ride but the gathering point will be at the shore end of Ryde Pier, same as the trip we did in 2017. Some groups chose to start at the Portsmouth ferry terminal, linking to Fishbourne on the island, or the high speed ferry going straight to Ryde, whilst others made their way across from Southampton ending in a shortish road ride to get to Ryde Pier.
Keith has done a recce and reports that there is a car park on University land about 5 minutes ride away on the corner of Museum Road and the A3 that is open to the public at weekends for £2 all day. Alternatively there are other public car parks in the vicinity but they tend to be rather pricey, or you could park in some cheaper options in the northern parts of Portsmouth and cycle a bit further to the ferry.
The hope is that given the variety of journey options, we will be grouped together and ready to ride away from Ryde pier on the Island at 10.30am. so plan well if you don’t want to be left behind.
