    There are some possible short cuts that could be put in..

    Day 1 – miss the Superbesse climb and go straight down the main road – saves 8miles & 300m ascent
    Day 2 – follow the N122 into aurillac (main road) – saves 11 miles & 350m ascent
    Day 3 – Stay in the valley at Grand Vabre – saves 3.5miles & 300m of ascent
    Day 4 – it only 54miles as the crow flies, but 95miles by road – no options to shortcut due the the twisting nature of the road, this was the shoerts i could feasibly make it unless you just followed the main N road (72miles)
    Day 5 – Again no options to short cut
    Day 6 – no options to short cut but only 68 miles
    Day 7 – 82miles no short cuts (more details to follow)

    Kasia and I would like to go this year. However, now it is my brother who is getting married (Not me btw!) on the 22nd of June. Can we squeeze this trip in after the first weekend (for Simon Slater) but before the 22nd please? It is definately June you are looking at I’m assuming?

    ok looks like there are more than twenty people interested as so far we have 21

    Subject to hotels being available date has now been set we will be either starting to ride on the 9th June or the 10th June and it will be 7 days of riding. Flights to Clemont Ferrand are £42 presently on the Friday and £138 on the Saturday.

    I will be booking hotels at the end of this week after which I will be asking for deposits of £50 -THESE WILL BE NON REFUNDABLE -if you pull out and find a replacement then the deposit can be swapped to the new person, the person dropping out will be responsible for sorting this out

    People will be required to pay a minimum of £450 into the club account prior to the trip and then the balance after all the bolls have come in.

    So far the people have told me in the order they have told me they are interested, if we are oversubscribed the selection policy will be on those that have helped out over this year in running the club events

    Good spot Paul- Due to the tour at this stage being over subscribed we do need to restrict it to club members and if we can not fit all that want to come we will need to have a selection policy which will be on what people have done for the club by the way of helping run events .
    I will see if I can find hotels to fit everyone in but in some places it is hard enough work finding hotels for 20!

    Currently those who have expressed an interest
