The Tipner Lake cycle path (which runs down the west side of Portsea) is now fully open, so how about we investigate?
I suggest going via Langstone Technology Park, the Farlington cycle path, across Hilsea Lines, down the new cycle path to Portsmouth. We can then time our elevenses/lunch stop to fit with the ferry timetable.
If you want to meet us on the way, there are a few options:
Where the Billy Trail crosses the main road over to the Langstone section
Entrance to LTP
Top of Eastern Road
Car park opposite the Hilsea lido
Let me know if you want to use one of the above (or different) option.
Weather is currently forecast to be dry, but not warm.
