Tour Information Revision 3
As if this wasn't enough Charlie has done a huge amount of working in filling out the day plan. This is now available below in a form that will allow you to download the pre planned routes to a GPS and to print the vital tour details to bring with you.
I'm sure you will all agree we owe Charlie a huge 'thank you' for taking the time to put all of this together for us.
A Bit About Club Tours
Funny as it may sound, the Club does not organise tours for its members .... read more
As some of you know Charlie Fletcher spends a lot of time cycling in Italy. He is based in the Medieval walled city of Lucca, and he rides in the beautiful surrounding Tuscan hills. Charlie has organised this tour to share that experience with the club and its members.
Grant Stewart is now joining us, taking our group to 12. Grant will be flying out on Wednesday the 5th and meeting up with us in Lucca on the following day.
Dante a Lucca based taxi driver who Charlie has known for many years has agreed to organise transport to and from the airport. Transfer including bikes, luggage and people will be either €20 or €25 per head each way, depending on whether we need four or five cars.
Charlie will pay Dante and collect the money from you lot.
Chris Harrison is flying back a day early. Dante will take Chris back for €50.
We will be split between the following two hotels. These are based upon preferences given. Any changes please let Charlie Fletcher know very quickly.
Via Sanata Giustina, 48
Hotel La Luna
Day Plan and Ride Itinerary
The bare minimum of facts plus the ride itinerary are available as a printable document which we strongly recommend you print and bring with you. Day plan
Tables have been booked in two good restaurants for the first and last night. We are all grown ups and can make our own decisions on where to eat on other nights.
With a total of 9 rides we are going to be a smelly bunch if we wear the same kit all the time. The suggestion is that we agree a day upon which we all don the club strip. It all makes for a good photo opportunity.
