UPDATE - April 22 - bookings made, 11 members confirmed - raring to go!

UPDATE - 17 Feb 22
We are in GO mode and will be confirming the ferry booking on 28 February - all other bookings for accomodation and van hire have been made.   There is a vacancy for one male sharing a room/cabin (or whichever gender and have an interest, ask!)

A cycle tour* to France is in the planning stage happening – 22 June 2022 – 3 July 2022 – in the Loire-Atlantique area.

It's two ferry crossings from/to Portsmouth (with cabins), two four night stays in hotels with day rides and two further hotel nights en route. Accommodation, usually on a DB&B plan, in shared rooms - or single at extra cost.

In 2019 we travelled from the port to the tour area using a van hired in France for the bikes plus luggage and three of the group, the rest on the train - that worked well and will be the basis for 2022.  Numbers would be limited by the van capacity to a maximum of 12 (at present the group is 9)

If you are interested contact Rob Gullen (direct WhatsApp message) sending your email address for more details, reports from a couple of previous tours . . . and the secrets of the brown purse!

We need firm decisions by 31 December 2021.

All, of course, subject to whatever the Covid/Vaccination requirements are in force
