Our road ride routes this week have been crafted by the Two Daves.
As always, please bring a copy of your chosen route with you.
There has been a few mutterings and conversation amongst a few of us and, as a result, we are planning a trip to ride the Raid Pyrenean in early September !
It’s 720km cycling, following the French/Spanish border, from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, with 12000m ascent in 100 hours (4.5 days), taking in the Tourmalet, Aubisque, Col d’Aspin and some other picturesque climbs.
The plan is to fly to Biarritz on 4th September, stay overnight in Hendaye, and then start pedalling on the following day finishing 4 days later in Cerbere. Fly home from Girona on 10th September.
We intend to complete each day as a group with agreed points for regrouping.
We will have a support driver and 5 nights half board accommodation costed at £600. Need to add on top of this flights and bike transport (when I looked it was approx £300), bike box hire, lunches, snacks, drinks etc.
We have reserved 5 twin rooms (10 people) and have 6 already committed (Sarah, David C, Martin, Andy, Rob) so there is space for 4 more people.
If you want more info, have a chat with Dave C, Sarah or Andy B… and if you are interested please let them know by Saturday 10th February so as to confirm rooms and get flights sorted.
