After returning from Zanzibar, I quickly turned around and headed for the second stop on my island tour. I met up with the usual triathlon crew and cycled down to the Isle of Wight. I don't really have too much to add, just that we had fun, we ate and drank quite a bit, and we fixed a lot of punctures (flat tires). Ugh.
Those of us who decided to play hooky (skive off work) to cycle down. Jeeves, Louise, Simon and John.
At our first coffee stop, Simon checks the map. We made it 1.5 hours before deciding a latte was in order. (Notice the sun!!! This was the last nice weekend before the monsoon season began)
There were some lovely views.
I really only stopped and took in the views when we stopped to change punctures.
A lovely view of a farmhouse......
Not to be outdone by Day 1, Day 2 started with ... a puncture. Actually, it started with two before we even left breakfast. We think Jeeves needs some new tires.
And, at the end of Day 2, the group looks a bit shell shocked as we refuel again. Or, they are just really sick of my camera! A bit more from the Isle of Wight coming up and then Mallorca. I promise those pictures are more interesting than changing a load of tubes.....
