France trip 3*
Leader:
Richard Pethybridge
Start Time:
6:00 pm
Start Location:
Whale Island, Portsmouth
Description:
I will be leading a repeat of last year's very successful weekend trip to France this weekend, taking the Friday evening ferry across from Portsmouth to St Malo, arriving early on Saturday morning. An outline route follows the coast eastbound before turning inland and heading up for an overnight stay in Vire. On the Sunday the route goes via Caen down to the coast and the return ferry from Ouistreham. Full details are on the appropriate day sections.:
We will depart Portsmouth on Friday evening, at 2015 (8.15pm). Free parking will be available in Portsmouth courtesy of the Royal Navy!
Sat 30 Sep - Arrive St Malo 0815. Ride to Vire. Distance approx 120km, with approx 1,000m of climbing. Stay overnight in Vire. Potential hotel accommodation in the Hotel Saint-Pierre.
Sun 1 Oct - Cycle to the coast via Caen (and hopefully the Cafe Gondree at Pegasus Bridge, for D-Day aficionados). Distance 80km, with approx 750m of climbing. Catch the 1630 ferry to Portsmouth, arriving 2115.
A core group has already formed, but there is still a little bit of space for late-comers.
Anyone interested in going is requested to contact me (Richard Pethybridge - 07875 456521 or pethybridgera@yahoo.co.uk) as soon as possible. Travel and accommodation is the responsibility of individuals.
