Hi All

Here is the info for my tour down to Treignac area in South of France (pics on my profile in France folder)

Depart Uk Saturday 29th June 2013

Stay overnight in Dover area then get early ferry across £42 returnFerry Saturday evening over and stay in CalaisOvernight ferry So any thoughts on that are welcome I tend to always go over on Dover ferry for ease and price. How ever we have a 400 mile run on the Sunday so thinking the over night ferry is the viable option.Thoughts ?
Sunday 30th June 2013
We will head down to South of France so be warned it will be about a 400 mile run. This will be a mixture of roads and there will be 2 or 3 toll roads to pass through so keep some euros handy (cost me 12ish euros each way last time)
Fully Guided Tour - The cost is 75 euros (£59) per person pernight:
All bed linen, and Towels.
English Breakfast
Home cooked evening meal
French Beer, Wine, Tea and Coffee
Secure Parking
WiFi access to the Internet
Bike Wash facilities
Workshop facilities Drying room facilities
Fully guided tours

Arrive to a warm welcome and cold beer, settle in to your room secure your bike and enjoy a relaxing home cooked meal with ample wine and cold beer.What some of the runs will be like

Start the day slowly with a cooked English Breakfast, Check bikes out then enjoy a rideout to Oradour-Sur-Glane along some exceptional biking roads. Back to Ridersrest for a home cooked evening meal and some cold beer and relax.

Gentle ride down to Guoffre de Padirac and Rocamadour taking in this spectacular town climbing a cliff and see the eagles sore before once more enjoying a few beers and telling tales of the trip at Ridersrest.

Up early for an English Breakfast and then a ride to Mary Peak in the Cantal Region of France with a visit to Aurillac then returning to a relaxing evening meal cold beer and wine

A long day up early Breakfast at 07:00 depart no later than 08:00 to the Millau Viaduct over and under, taking in the Lot Valley on route for this 380 mile round trip. A hot meal and cold beer will be waiting our return at Ridersrest at about 21:00 (not for the faint hearted but well worth it)

Ride through the romantic Dordogne Stopping at Argentat for Lunch then on through some winding roads and picturesque villages - Collonges-la Rouge - Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne.

Take in the chain of Volcanos along Puy de Dom, Super Besse, Mt Dore (the source of the River Dordogne) & Sancy, where in the Winter this is a major ski-ing area both down hill and x-country, Also take coffee at picturesque Chateau de Val

Head south and slightly west to Sarlat , riding along the Jurassic and primevil route along the gorges du Dordogne, through such places as Les Eyzies

Casual start then ride to Perigoux via Pompadour taking in some spectacular Chateaux and abby's famous durng the 100 year wars, where The black Prince won his Spurs, and Richard the Lion Heart ruled when he wasn't on the crusades.
Then the return trip home Saturday 6th to catch ferry home.
Accommodation 13 only (not including me)
1 double2 TwinBunk House (spacious and loads of room/storage and a full beer fridge)
Sleeping arrangements
Any single male bikers will be put in bunk house, Single females in Twin unless full then you will have to share bunk house. The numbers are limited on this trip so first come first served and the above applies to everyone.You will have to pay a deposit of 100 euros and you will lose this if you decide to pull out. You can transfer your space to another BM member but you will sort out monies after telling me the change.This so I don't lose money which has happened before
Please make sure you have a bike than can do the mileage of this tour while loaded up. Please make sure you are also up to doing the mileage and keep in mind the temps can be 30c+. I would not do this trip unless you have a sat nav or at least decent maps in case you get separated.

More Info as we go along such as where to pay the deposit and how we will invade France
