    Sorry Paul, Chris P is not a name i know and not a person who I have seen n a ride but as a club member will be added to the list.

    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

    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 provided they are a club member , 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

    All hotels now booked. I have to whittle the list down to 22, once I have I will ask for deposits
    the criteria for selection is those that have been on previous trips , those that have helped out at club events and those that support club rides so a hard task.
    As always it is likely that people will have t drop out for a myriad of reasons so I will run a reserve list

    Ok after a discussion at the pub last night the decision is that people should pay a non refundable deposit of £100 to confirm there interest and then as long as they committ to doing at least one club ride a month and assist with at least one of the clubs open events they will fit the criteria for selection.Those that are racing on the day and unable to make the nominated ride will be excempt. The road ride this month is this Sundays lovelo sportive at Berkhampstead which with 3 distances should be suitable for all
    So if your still interested then e-mail me and I will send you further details how to pay the deposit, initially those that have come previously and assisted in past events will take priority .

    Has anyone looked at flights yet? I have tried Skyscanner and it only shows a Friday flight with Ryan Air departing Stanstead @12.55 and arriving @15.40 at Clermont Ferrand £42.00

    Does this mean we will start the ride on the Saturday?

    Not sure which airport we will be returning from

    We start riding on Sunday 10/6. Perpignan is the airport to return from – Sunday 17/6.
    Henry, Darren and Kasia are on 12:55 on 8/6 from Stansted to Clermont and return on 15:25 flight from Perignan (17/6). Chris suggests other people start booking flights 🙂

    Cheers
