France Trip – Final Details

Wed 30th Oct (2200hrs) – Fri 1st Nov (0630hrs) 🙂

Payment is now due for this trip and those yet to pay should pay via the link at the bottom of this post, the cost is £60 per person, which includes a shared cabin both ways and lunch on the ride. 

Names of those attending, together with cabin allocations are below.  With the exception of Holly and Nikki we will be able to leave our bags in the cabins whilst we cycle, H & N please leave yours with Dave and Lynda then pick up when we re board.

Please note we will be cycling for a short time in the evening after sunset, as such ensure you have lights fitted for this trip.  We will not have a support car as back up so also check you are not about to go through any tyres and your bike is in good condition for the ride.  We have managed to arrange free parking for anyone who wishes to leave their car at the ferry, this will be at the new marina, King Point, whose entrance is immediately adjacent to the ferry check in (this is by kind agreement of Sutton Harbour Holdings) If you wish to use this facility then you must arrive at King Point between 19:45 and 20:15, we will be checking in at 20:15 – 20:30  for a sailing at 22:00 (Groups must check in 90 minutes before departure).  Official meeting time for the trip is 20:15 at King Point Marina.

We arrive in Roscoff at 08:00 local time and we have allowed an hour for disembarking and customs etc.  Thereafter we head off towards Morlaix and then out to the East before turning back to head for Huelgoat for our lunch stop after 48 miles.  We will be aiming to have lunch between 13:00 and 14:30.  In the afternoon we will head due North back to Morlaix, this is a fast 20 mile stretch and we may break the group up providing all are happy with the route back to Morlaix.  In Morlaix we will regroup for a coffee stop before heading back to Roscoff.  If the timing works we should be back at the ferry port between 18:00 and 19:00 (this will allow a supermarket stop for any that want one).

There is an early embarkation slot at 20:00 which we will aim to meet, thus allowing a shower and meet up for some post ride banter.  Sunset is at 18:00 local time so we will try and limit the riding in the dark to a minimum.

The sailing time from Roscoff is 21:50 local and we arrive back at Plymouth 06:30 local on the Friday morning.

Due to a cancelation we have one place remaining, if anyone would like to take it then please let me know as soon as possible

Full route can be found here, 83 miles total with 6,500 ft of ascent….easy day! 🙂
