Part of our holiday this time was to enter in the vintage bike rally that runs in conjunction with the TT festival. It is run over the 3 days in between race days and is a nice way to meet different people and see the country side at a slow pace.
Sunday was to start from Kirk Michael with a ride to Peel. The start was shown on TV with Olga being shown a few times. The ride was steep, slow and up roads that even some of the locals didn’t know about. Remember the IOM is only 13 miles wide and 30 long.
Tuesday was to Ramsey to participate in the Ramsey Sprint Festival with prime parking, then a ride around the north of the island. The sidecars had an alternative route as 1 lane was a bit narrow.
This is a two way road.
Thursday was a low key ride to Castletown for the rally presentation tea and awards. This ride took in the South of the island. Spectacular scenery.
Olga wins a TT trophy. Longest distance ridden to rally. 1650 miles.
Janice wants one.
All is good in paradise.
