OVERSEAS TRIPS AND EVENTS
LOIRE VALLEY TRIP – MAY 2020
The Cycling Committee are hoping to arrange a five night spring cycling holiday around the quiet lanes and tracks of the Sologne region in Northern France, aimed at those wanting a more relaxed group holiday, cycling around 40 km a day on fairly flat terrain. The trip will allow plenty of time to visit chateaux in the Loire region and enjoy the cuisine and wines of the area. Our plan is to depart Woodcote Park on Tuesday 12 May and return on Sunday 17 May.
Given recent cases of Coronavirus, and dependant on numbers, we plan to arrange transport to and from the Eastern Loire taking a small coach from Woodcote Park, and use Inntravel to arrange and book all accommodation/transport bags/meals/cycle routes for the holiday. Inntravel are experienced cycling travel specialists and accommodation would be in three star hotels, with members sharing twin rooms, as is the norm for all Club holidays. Hybrid bike hire is included.
The cost in May will be around £1,115.00 per person including food, accommodation, cycling routes and bag transport, with coach transport to and from France being charged at cost. Spaces are limited due to the size of available hotels.
We are emailing all cycling members to gauge interest in this holiday. Places are limited to 12 so to go ahead we need to confirm numbers as soon as possible. We appreciate the date is now two months away and Coronavirus issues uncertain, however we consider using Inntravel specialist knowledge and taking our own coach will allow the easiest and safest way to travel to the region. It will also allow anyone wanting to take their own bike to do so.
If you are interested in joining this Club trip please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your details and membership number and we will then respond individually, so Inntravel can then set up a Group Club booking and we can arrange transport.
