A Sunny Ride Round the Island

Somehow cycling around the Isle of Wight in May wasn’t enough for this year, and on Saturday morning we found ourselves once again setting off on the chain ferry to register for the 110k route around the Island.  This sunny September day was in sharp contrast to our previous wet ride, and a perfect celebration of Autumn.  It wasn’t a ride for stopping and taking pictures.  But, Tom did a great job at balancing camera and handlebars for some snaps from the saddle.

I love this ride in any weather, but it is all the more delicious in the sunshine.
