Bit of a hijack here.... Wife and I are thinking about a trip across the pond for a visit this fall. If we go, I want to plan a day at the IoM. She's been kind enough to tell me it can be "my" day and I should see the "sights". So... Any suggestions on what to see, how to see it, etc. Also, thinking of setting up a trip to the 2019 TT while I'm there. Could use some help on what needs to be done and best way to set things up.
Help appreciated.

Thanks.
Chuck S.

Hi Chuck

When is ' the Fall '?

There is bike racing on the IOM in June/July/August , but think the end of August is the last one Manx/Classic. And I am guessing Fall is sept/oct ?
After the bike events the IOM does have a bit of culture/scenery BUT if you are a hydrocarbon fueled type of man , you have to visit at a bike event time !!

Fall is when the leaves drop off the trees (non evergreens - deciduous only)….and Spring is when the plants come to life....One for the kids there Vort...Mind you...it does depend on what part of the world you live in....seasons change depending on latitude or is it longitude???

I think the IOM would be a better place for me to visit outside of the biking events.
