Up next we have the annual Hayling Island ride, as my friend Tristan puts it: “One hour on the saddle and six on the sauce….”
Simple concept, ride from Southsea to the pub The Ferry Boat Inn on Hayling and then return on the vessel that bears it’s name. The pub itself is your typical chain pub with typical chain pub food, but your cycled up appetite is not fussy by that point. Burgers, chips and cheap pitchers of beer were the order of the day!
Note the photo of the old boy and his colossal dessert, we couldn’t believe the size of it! Not only that but he smashed the whole thing in about 15 minutes……. top chap.
