A good friend of mine (the Mikester) got himself a new bike, replacing a 1300 FJR with a Triumph Street Triple, now affectionately known as “Kermit”.

So Saturday there was nothing to do but meet up for a ride! East Cowes to Newport, Bembridge, Brading, Sandown, Shanklin, Ventnor, Blackgang Chine, Military Road to Freshwater and back across the middle road to Newport and back to East Cowes. That’s a route we’ve often ridden and it always delivers stunning views, plenty of meandering bends and always a stop somewhere for a bacon bap. This time the BayWatch on the Beach Cafe in Bembridge served us a good but rather expensive (£6.50) brioche bap! The photo shows the bikes parked about 20m from the cafe. Duver Beach (pronounced Duvver) is one of my personal favourite Isle of Wight destinations and worth a visit if you find yourself on our little island.
