Ticket to Ryde – A Tasty Guide to the Isle of Wight Scooter Rally

Ticket to Ryde – A Tasty Guide to the Isle of Wight Scooter Rally 2000 1105 The Editor

This August bank holiday, Ryde is set to come alive with the arrival of the Isle of Wight Scooter Rally, and along with it a party atmosphere takes over the town. The event has been taking place on the Island for over thirty years and is internationally renowned, attracting over 5,000 classic Vespas and Lambrettas with an island-wide drive out on the Sunday. With so much going on we’ve pulled together a few places we think should be on your hit-list for the weekend. Carnaby Street may not be what it used to be but Union Street has got it all.

It seems like there is a national day or week for everything these days but in this case we aren’t complaining as it’s an excuse to celebrate something we do pretty darn well here on the Isle of Wight. Happy Afternoon Tea Week everyone!

Yesterday saw the start of National Allotments Week – an annual campaign that began as a way to raise awareness of allotments and the role they play in helping people to live healthier lifestyles and grow their own food. With the interest in growing your own fruit and vegetables at an all time high, the campaign has in addition highlighted how allotments can not only develop friendships but also bolster communities as growers support each other and share their produce. Nothing beats the feeling of satisfaction you get from growing your own – a tummy full of tasty treats and a sense of wellbeing!
