Spectating the Isle of Man TT With the benefits of rented motorcycles and empty back roads, we watched the racing from seven distinct locations this year.

But this year, we experienced Cronk-y-Voddy. When we pulled up, a kindly race marshal suggested that, in order to experience Cronk-y-Voddy full fat, we crawl under that rickety scaffolding over there, trudge through thicket, climb a fence into a manure-rich pasture, across a ditch, and up an embankment… you know, just like spectators do at a MotoGP race… to reach a good spot.

I want to go back there now. The bottom line is that you can easily reach myriad wonderful race viewing locations via car, bus, taxi, foot or bike. What else is there to do on the Isle of Man?
