Our spring Improvers' ride to Paris will start in Ashford Kent on Thursday 22nd May and end in Paris at the Eiffel Tower on Sunday 25th May.

This adventure is for those people who plan to join our regular Sunday training rides starting this weekend Sunday December 8th

The plan is to ride from Ashford to Dover on Thursday 22nd May and catch a ferry staying in Calais that first night.  Thereafter we have three days of approximately 110 km each, relatively flat riding before we arrive in Paris on Sunday 25th.  Hotels will be in the order of 65 Euros per night sharing on top of that, there's food, fuel for the support car, ferries and return transport to consider.  Once we have a handle on numbers we can book hotels and from there finalise the route.

Days will be broken up into manageable stages, a morning coffee stop, maybe a picnic lunch making sure we have broken the back of the day by lunchtime. 

To make this work we need to find a volunteer to drive a support vehicle to Paris, that's the starting point, so please put your thinking caps on.  If you would like to put your name in the ring to do the ride, no obligation until I ask for a deposit, just trying to get a sense of numbers initially, please email me soonest.

More info will be added to this page as the trip takes shape.
