Myself and the other half are going on a camping holiday down to the New Forest soon. Taking the bikes (obviously) and plan to do a lot of cycling
One route we have planned is the IoW - Yarmouth, Needles, Nitton, Wotton Bridge, Cowes, Yarmouth.
Question is, should we cycle it as above (anti-clockwise) or clockwise?
I had thought to do it anti-clockwise, however, I'm starting to think cycling it clockwise would be more enjoyable as the terrain is more rolling and countryside-esque from Cowes to Wotton Bridge then Nitton.
This would mean that we'd be descending on Military Road from Nitton to Freshwater Bay and we'd get the best view on the cycle down of the coast and Tennyson Down. Just need to make sure it's not a strong SW wind if we do it clockwise!
Anyone have any recommendations?
