  1. I'm thinking of spending a week later this year cycle touring in the Isle of Man. Does anyone know
    of any cheap to mid priced accommodation (hostel or bed and breakfast) that is cycle friendly, eg
    has somewhere secure to park the cycle overnight? Failing that, is there a web site where I can look
    for such accommodation? Thanks.

    All the B+Bs we went to were fine - back yard or similar. Security didn't seem to be much
    of an issue.

    We went just after the TT so avoided all the motorbikes - traffic was all very pleasant. We were
    surprised to meet loads of cyclists on the ferry, all more efficient than us getting the cheap
    tickets :-( - it was the cycling week. However they all stay in Douglas, so no worries about
    accomodation elsewhere.

    Basically avoid the TT/speed week, and I think you'll be fine whatever you
    do.

    cheers, clive

    Hi, we had a tour round the I.O.M. 3 years ago and found plenty of accom. Douglas has cheap B&Bs on
    the prom, a short ride from the ferry terminal. Peel is a good stop, several B&Bs in a short stretch
    of street leading down to the harbour. Ramsey has a number of B&Bs south of the river bridge. All
    the places we stayed at allowed us to bring our bikes inside. We just booked the first night's
    accom, from a leaflet we picked up at the Heysham ferry terminal, while on the ferry crossing by
    mobile phone and then obtained additional info from the T.I.C at Douglas. Goes without saying that
    you need to avoid the TT race period, not only for the bikes but accom is always full. It was a
    delightful little tour, our main tour was the west coast of Southern Ireland but as we had to cross
    via the I.O.M. we decided to use it as a leisurely 3 day warm-up. Best run was return to Douglas
    from Ramsey racing the electric tram down hill all the way! Roger

    Christ, not another. My "ignore thread" button has never seen so much action.
