Come cycle round islands with me! There's a hovercraft

I noticed, when I bought my Network Railcard, that the Network is quite big; indeed, the Network Railcard is valid for the trip by train and hovercraft from Cambridge to the Isle of Wight, and the saving on the return trip exceeds by some way the cost of a Network Railcard.

So, for the late-May Bank Holiday, I plan to cycle round the Isle of Wight. It's not a very big isle, it's about seventy miles all the way round, so there's time to spend one day getting there with a fair amount of time to see the naval attractions of Portsmouth, stay at a B&B in say Bembridge on Saturday evening, then a day and most of another day cycling - probably go round clockwise, so the south of the island on the Sunday, sleep at the youth hostel at Totland Bay, then round the north of the island to leave Ryde at about 5:30 on Monday and be back in Cambridge at ten.

But it would be more fun not to cycle round the Isle of Wight on my own; would anyone like to join me?
