'''Ramsey''' is a town in northeastern [[Isle of Man]].
Hitching Out ==
Hitch from the outskirts of town. Use the road signs in the town centre to find your way out.
=== South towards [[Laxey]], [[Onchan]], [[Douglas]] ===
Use either the A18 'mountain road', or the A2 'coast road'. On [http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=tdCXHeFttR8 this video], the bike is travelling south from Ramsey centre. At 00:35, there's a junction - straight on is the A18, left is the A2.
*The A18 'mountain road' will take you directly to Douglas. It is sometimes closed due to bad weather. From the bus station, walk up the road until you find a good spot. The corner at 01:22 on the above video works well, with waiting time 5-20 minutes. Going south, the 'mountain road' is the most famous section of the [[TT course]], so sit back and enjoy the fantastic scenery.*The A2 'coast road' takes you down through Laxey and the other villages, on the way to Douglas. Walk along the A2 past the junction with the promenade, and anywhere is fine. Use a sign saying the name of the place you want to go to, but if it's Laxey or further, just write LAXEY. There is a bus stop with a bench to sit down, but you won't be sitting for long. Waiting time 5-10 minutes.
=== West towards [[Kirk Michael]], [[Peel]] ===
