My chosen route was to use the Old (as in the village) TT circuit of around 10 miles, do 7 laps and the bit to and from the circuit. Now for some that may sound a bit repetitive but hey it was a beautiful day and the route has points of interest. The very straight bit of road leading to Lamport used to run alongside a military runway. The Lamport airfield was used for reconnaissance missions in WWII and then housed nuclear missiles during the Cold War. Hard to believe isn't it! Then there's also Lamport House if you're into stately homes.
I had a serious ear worm for the ride having watched a great cycling video featuring Brett Bellchambers
