Everyone’s getting ready for TT

Living in the Isle of ManThere’s a definite air of excitement brewing all over the Isle of Man as “that time of year” approaches once again. I refer to none other than the Manx TT, the annual motorcycling event that is held here in the Isle of Man once a year. We’re lucky enough to live quite close to the circuit, so can watch the racing any time we wish (see map).

The excitement isn’t just the racing though. Lots of people make their way to the Island and there’s loads of entertainment put on for them. We get a fairground, stunt shows, the Red Arrows and other things to enjoy. You know what they say, having a good time keeps you younger than the best anti wrinkle cream. It’s quite fascinating to see bikers of all ages, from kids to octogenarians, getting on their bike and coming to the Isle of Man.

Are you coming to join us this year?
