France Ride - August 26th

After the recent success of the Londonbikers.com French Rideout there is another one planned and will be taking in

“A TWO NIGHT STAY IN ST OMER”.

August 26th Bank Hoiliday Weekend

The details are as follows :=

Using the EuroTunnel

The departure time you are aiming for is 08.44 on the 26th (Sat)

The Return time you are aiming for is 21.33 on the 28th (Mon)

Prices are approx £65

The area we are planning to stay in is St Omer which has a beautiful location with everything you are going to need in the surrounding areas and is a fantastic base for planned Rideouts in any direction that will include superb scenery and top condition roads through open countryside and coastal views that are picture postcard quality

The accomodation will be modest and with (Formule 1) which have outlets through Europe. The facilitys are basic but they are clean and well managed and have the parking space we need and are very Biker Friendly.

As you can see from the price guide you will be paying no more that approx (28 euro,s per night)

The Hotel booking is negotiable in the respect of you can either do that now or wait to see if we can get a deal on a mass booking !!

(I have to phone back in approx 10 days)

“Edit” PHONE CALL 19.17HRS (NO DEAL DUE TO POPULARITY SO BOOK NOW)

The arangements will remain the same as the last trip (meeting points, leaving times and travel stops)

The guys in Maidstone to be met will make the same arrangment as before.

TIMETABLE =

CUBANA = (approx) 05.30am meet on the morning of the 26th departing 06.10am (Sharp) !!

MAIDSTONE = A brief stop at the Services to pick up the remaining members (approx 30mins)

FOLKESTONE = Arrival and Booking and Boarding 08.14am

In Folkstone you will have plenty of time to collect Currency and other Supplies you think you may have forgotten and in Charlys case “stock on stella” !!

The Crossing takes approx 40 mins where you will be travelling in the Carriage with your Bike and Belongings.

(see gallerys)

I URGENTLY STRESS THAT BOOKING THE EUROTUNNEL AT THE EARLIEST POSSIBLE TIME IS A MUST. THESE PLACES GO VERY QUICK AND BEING A BANK HOLIDAY IT WILL BE EVEN MORE POPULAR.

The last French Trip was superb, a fantastic experience with people of all abilitys and skill. The respect from the other road users, food and location was unbelievable which made it a trip not to be missed so get booking to make sure you dont miss this one.

(REMINDER) =

(The eurotunnel trains run aprox every 40 mins so if booking on a different train at a different time will not be a problem as the group will wait to muster up and leave together when in Calais)

DO NOT MAKE OTHER THREADS/POSTS ABOUT THIS FRANCE TRIP!!! WE HAD 5 TOPIC POSTS LAST TIME AND HAD PROBLEMS ON THE DAY BECAUSE PEOPLE DIDNT SEE THE INFORMATION ON OTHER POSTS!!!

ONLY POST IN THIS THREAD AND WE SHALL KEEP A RUNNING TOTAL CLOSER TO THE TIME OF PEOPLE BOOKED, TIMES, ECT. ONE POST ONLY PLEASE !!!

As Barro said you will have time to change your money into currency but as being a bank holiday i suggest you should change your currency before the weekend due to the fact that there will be a lot of people there this time of year.
