Next French Tour 1st -3rd October

There are still spaces left on our next French Trip.  Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd October.

The kids are back in school, it’s raining here so you can’t cut the grass, Not another rainy day spent in Ikea buying things you think you wanted (but you’ve already got a dozen of them at home).  It’s time to get on your bike…….

Leaving Dover on Friday morning for Calais, on the prestigious Sea France ferry fleet, three days/two nights Bed & Breakfast Hotel, accommodation (using just one Hotel so no lugging your kit around).

Returning on the evening ferry on Sunday evening.

Just £350 gets you your return ferry, accommodation, and information pack with riding tips for France, destinations and maps plus the Guided Services of your highly experienced tour guide, who can lead you safely on some of the best biking roads to be found in the region.

So if you’ve been before…come again.  If you’ve never been then this is the ideal way to venture across the water, under the watchful eye of your tour guide.

In a group of no more than ten bikes, this is a lead group ride and caters for riders of all abilities.

Great company, great food, great roads…..Great !

Give me a call for further details or to book your place.  07545 567 273

Come on you know you want to…

Also, I’ve had a text from Francis Maxey, who we sent off from Riders of Cardiff, via  Stonehenge last month, on his way to The Sinai.  He has reached Bulgaria and is doing well.  Not bad for someone who forgot all his maps on the day he left!  Nice one Francis.

  1. Andy,

    Afraid thats a bit early for me, only getting back from France on 26th Spet, so don’t think her indoors would be too happy with me going off again so soon … so, maybe catch you on the next one! Have a good trip!

    As for Francis, little worrying that he might not be consulting the maps after all that palaver on the day, we told him to just ride South East and keep the water on his right, its got him to Bulgaria so far 🙂

    Seriously, great to hear hes doing well …


  2. Erica and I enjoyed the Burton rideout greatly, Tintern through the Wye is lovely at this time of year. company was great a really freindly bunch of fellow bikers. Sorry we can’t make the French trip will be in Belgium on the 2nd Oct for the Cora Wine Fair in Brussels via the channel tunnel. Anyway hope to make the next rideout weather permitting.
    Thanks again for a great day.
