Alps road trip =7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th,12th, 13th, 14th, 15th of July
(As posted on BHB in 2011)
Going over next years possible biking trips, the first definite one will be the popular Alps road trip which will include most of the gold award biking roads but with new routes and overnight destinations.
Hotels are taking bookings for next year already, so this time around I want to get in their fast as availability to the best hotels are snapped up early every year leaving the more expensive ones as an only option.
The Dates will be: Saturday 7th July and return on Sunday 15th July 2012.“these dates are cast in stone”.
The maximum amount of bikes on this trip will be 6 inclusive of me.
Now of course there are regulars on this trip that will definitely have a spot reserved for them but leaves an option for 2 more bikes so I’m slinging this in here to see if anyone is interested in taking the available 2 slots.
If any of the regulars can’t make it then i’ll offer their space accordingly.
If there is any members on BHB/LB that would like to join us touring the Alps please show your interest here however it will not be “first come first served basis I’m afraid”, not on a trip like this one,
The reservists plus me will decide who’s in and who’s not, sorry, but to maintain harmony and insure everyone gets along this is the way it has to be done.
All progress on this trip will be available on this thread.

All Hotels are now booked.
Costs have worked out at £550.00 each so this is how it’s going to work.
I’m going to ask for £650.00 from each of you to be paid by the end of March2012, I know how you lot drink and put it on the room so this should coverthat.
Yes, the costing is a few quid more than last year but the difference this timeround is everybody has their own room, so no more moaning about snoring, Nicksguts, etc, etc.
All rooms have been booked with free cancellation, so no one is tied in at thisstage……only those that have paid will go on the list as definitely in on thisone.
I’ll book the Train after Christmas and post times here, once you’ve paid andare in, you can book your train.
Of course costing will be done after the trip and any beer monies owing will berefunded on return.
The £650.00 minus the £100.00 beer money is a non refundable deposit, once thefree cancellation period runs out, hotels still have to be paid, so if youdecide you cannot make it come the last minute for whatever reason or breakdownon route, crash the bike, whatever the reason this payment is non refundable.
So if any of you are interested in any of these trips pleasepost on this thread, If any of you are interested in the Alps road trip then PM me.
