It has been announced that Ryde Slide will return this year for it’s third consecutive year. On Sunday the 16th of July, thrill seekers will have the opportunity to ride the slide for £10. Contributions made to ride the slide will be donated to selected Island charities.

The slide is said to be even faster this year because it will be starting slightly further down Union Street and ending at Ryde Esplanade roundabout…

“It’s great timing, and good for tourism, because there will be a party all weekend. The firefighters will be at the top, giving you a push, with the Ryde Inshore crew catching you at the bottom” – Councillor Wayne Whittle
