Isle of Man Coast Path Run – Douglas to Derby Haven

As mentioned in an earlier post: As I’ve been gradually running around the coast of Wales, I thought that while I was on the Isle of Man I may as well start running around that as well. At around 100 miles it’s a fair bit shorter than running around Wales and should be achievable even...

After a nice night sleeping in Ramsey the Campervan in the dunes of the Ayres I was up earlyish for a walk in the dunes. So much like home! Once back at the camper it was pancakes for breakfast and then we headed off to check out the wind at Ballaugh. It was pretty windy...

It was our final day on the Isle of Man today so we only had the morning to play before catching the boat back. The weather was still cold at around 3°C and the wind had picked up to a nice force 6 easterly just in time for the ferry crossing! So as to continue...

Geocaching and Ice Creams

Saturday was another glorious day on the Isle of Man. Still cold but sunny and the wind had finally eased a little. I started the days activities with a bike ride around the TT course whilst Anna and Morgan went to visit James and Donna. It’s a shame I didn’t get to catch up with...

Snow on the Isle of Man TT Course 1

Avenues of Snow on the TT Course

I’ve visited the Isle of Man many times now, sometimes with surfing kit, other times with windsurfing kit, once or twice with kitesurfing kit and yet others with Mountain Bikes. I’ve windsurfed, surfed, kite-surfed and mountain biked all over the island, I’ve done the Isle of Man End2End MTB race twice, but I’ve never been...
