Hi,

I've always been a motorbike fan since birth and of course the best race of them all has to be the isle of man TT every year. As I am now finding a new love for the sport of road cycling, I would love to merge the two together and cycle the TT course.

Problem is, I've never been to the isle of man so I don't know my way around. I can't be alone in wanting to do this course and was wondering if anyone had the Garmin route saved for the course?

    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

  • By all means cycle the TT course, but if you are going to be there for a few days buy an Ordnance Survey map of the island. A most wonderful place to cycle as long as you don't mind hills..!!
    I'm not getting old... I'm just using lower gears......
