Three years ago, a group of farcyclists ( three tandems, a few singles, and a couple of walkers) joined in; AND WE WERE BLOWN AWAY at how amazing it was! A week-long Festival of Cycling & Walking as you've never seen before. 10,000+ participants of every size, age, ability.....
We said to ourselves - we've simply GOT to do this again - if it happens to be in a convenient part of France.
And THIS year - SEM FED 2020 is in the Cherbourg Peninsula - incredibly convenient!
The actual cycling is from : Sunday 2nd -Saturday 8th August. (click for routes)
We are planning to take the 15.15 Brittany Ferry on Sat 1st August from Portsmouth to Cherbourg and returning on 12.30 ferry on Sat 8th August.
AND WE'VE BOOKED A CHATEAU THAT SLEEPS UP TO 26 PEOPLE! Check out the AMAZING Slideshow & Aerial Video. You'll see from the location ( Château le Val, 110, Route de St. Jouvin, 50700 Brix ) that it's just 12km from the centre of all the action.
This is likely to be an unforgettable week; whether you walking or cycling! In other words - ideal also for those who prefer WALKING. You will have company; there are already other WALKERS registered.
