2017 France/ Spain/ Andorra Tour

Post by hairy » Mon Mar 20, 2017 9:23 pm

Well it's that time of year again. Time to plan the 2017 France/ Spain/ Andorra Tour.
We’ll be leaving on the Thursday 29th June from Plymouth and returning on Thursday 13th July into Portsmouth. As usual it is a camping tour ( although most campsites have the option of small chalet thingies as well). We’ll be travelling down the west cost of France to start with before heading inland and travelling across the Pyranees to Pamplona before travelling along the Pyranees on the magnificent N260 to Andorra. Then it's back into France to do the Gorge du Tarn then back up through the centre of France to Caen. The 2nd weekend there is a bike show that we will attend, but obviously if anyone else is coming they don't have to and there are plenty of other campsites and things to do in the area. Anyone who's been before knows what it's like but for first timers I can promise you quality food, drink and roads, can't guarantee the company though lol. This is not a Charlie/ Ewan massive tour with many hardships. It is a great way to ride some great roads with likeminded people and have some laughs along the way. If you want to know more contact me (frencheric69) or my brother Martyn (hairy) and we’ll gladly try to answer any questions.
Au revoir mes amis.
