9-Day ride to the Alps
- Planned for 19 – 27th September 2020 – fingers crossed this will go ahead – it has to, I’m already going stir-crazy!!
This is a week long ride, Saturday to the following Sunday, 9-days, with four days in one location based in the Alps for us to explore. Combining wonderful alpine scenery with those sought after roads, we spend our time exploring.
Note: overnight stops may change slightly depending on numbers and availability of rooms.
Day 1 – Saturday – Depart UK via Eurotunnel for a mid-day crossing – head to Charelois in Belgium for our first overnight stop.
Day 2 – Sunday – We head to Besancon.
Day 3 – This is Monday, arrive at our hotel in Chatel.
Days 4 – 7 – Tues – Friday – Exploring the Alpine roads with day trips out on circular rides. And of course, just having a rest and spending the day exploring if you like.
Day 8 – Saturday – we depart Chatel and start our homeward journey stopping overnight in Troyes.
Day 9 – Sunday – we blast to the Eurotunnel to catch our train back home.
We plan to avoid using toll roads wherever possible; though depending on time, weather etc, we may have to use them every now and again.
Our cost for the Run to the Alps trip is around £1150 per person based on two people sharing a twin room.
Evening meals, fuel, RoSPA test, insurances, toll roads, vignettes, entry to any attractions and daily sustenance are not included.
