Pegasus Bridge. Cycle/Paddle Commemoration
5 June 2021
Pegasus Bridge – Cycle / Paddle – Commemoration
Due to the C19 restrictions we are not allowed to travel to France for the commemoration so we will be cycling from Tarrant Rushton Airfield, where the gliders took off to Calshot.
At Tarrant Rushton we will be holding a service for the men and women who were lost on Operation Overlord Instead of boarding the ferry to France we will be paddling across the Solent to the Isle of Wight from either Cowes or Keyhaven.
Once in Cowes/Yarmouth we will spend the remaining time exploring the Island before paddling back to Calshot/Keyhaven on the 8th and cycling back to Tarrant Rushton.
