Rider’s Official Opening and some French Stuff

Riders Open Weekend.

Riders at Sloper Road are holding their Official Opening next weekend.  Saturday the 9th & Sunday the 10th of May.  Plenty going on, including the launch of the latest BMW models.  I’ll blog out more details when I get them, to let you know exactly what is going on.  See you there? There is a Cafe upstairs there don’t you know!

D Day 65th Anni180px-normandy5versary Trip.      5th to the 7th of June.

Walk in the Footsteps of Heroes.


Come with us for another 1st Class Biking Trip across The Channel.  Following on from our War Graves Tour in April, we will be visiting Normandy in the midst of the celebrations marking the 65th Anniversary of the D Day landings.

Travelling from Dover to Calais (It’s where the Germans were actually expecting us 65 years ago) 8am Friday the 5th of June- returning from Calais 7.30pm Sunday 7th June.

The cost of the trip is expected to be in the region of the last trip. ~(£250*), which will include your ferry crossing and accommodation in France on a bed & breakfast basis, and my guided services.

Visiting the Normandy beaches and Pegasus Bridge.  A mixture of motorcycling and sight seeing, remembering the180px-1944_normandylst events that shaped the world 65 years ago.

The last trip was full on the day it was publicised,  so with the 65th celebrations going on places on this trip are expected to be in demand.   You will need to get in quick for this one!

Let me know if you are interested, and you can pay your deposit on line at our main website.

Please note that the deposit is NON-returnable as it will be used to secure your ferry and accommodation.

As you can imagine Hotel places are much in demand in France at this time so I will need to confirm a booking in the region as soon as possible.

Once again I am limiting the numbers to just 10.

Don’t miss out.

*The final cost will be confirmed as soon as final hotel costs are verified.
