If a few days of good weather has been forecast you could do a lot worse than head over to the Isle of Man. It has plenty of bleakly beautiful, desolate moorland. Then roll into Peel and get a kipper butty and an ice cream.
I think I've cycled every road of the Isle of Man.
Whatever you do, don't come during TT Week (around the first week of June). You won't find any accommodation and you're liable to be squished by a German motorcyclist screaming along on tiny, unfamiliar lanes at 150 mph.
When the weather is nice, the Isle of Man is stunningly beautiful. It's just a pity it doesn't happen very often.
Roads are good. The issue of motorcyclists during TT Week is a problem, albeit lesser, at any time of year. Many of the roads you'll want to cycle on have got no speed limits. It's a way of thinning the herd.
As most of my family live here, I've never had to pay for a campsite or a hotel and so I can't help. Things here at usually more expensive than in the UK.
English. If you want a laugh, go into a shop and ask for something in Manx.
Very pretty scenery, kipper butties, Davison's toffee ice cream, to test your new raincoat.
