We were having that perennial argument in the office the other day as to whether there would ever be a permanent link to the Isle of Wight.
It was agreed it would certainly never happen during our lifetimes. Economic viability and opp-osition from the ferry companies were just two of the reasons cited.
But having spent last weekend with my bicycle travelling on the island, I think it would lose the magic of being an island if it were just an extension of the mainland without that sense of arriving.
And have you noticed when you are on a bicycle, rather than in a car, someone comes along and puts more hills in the way?
