This will be our 4th group cycle to Normandy for a Twinning Anniversary - Faringdon has been twinned with le Mele-sur-Sarthe for 30 years now.
If you've done it before you'll know what a great experience it is . . . .
. . . . . if you haven't, consider giving it a try this year!
We set off from Faringdon on Wed 24th August and cycle to Portsmouth (about 75 miles) in the day - we take it leisurely (that's the only way on the tandem!) and have plenty of stops. The night ferry is at 10pm (to Ouistreham). The next day is again about 75 miles to le Mele and we aim to arrive there about 5pm.
The French hospitality is legendary (and free), but if you prefer a hotel, that is possible. We do things largely as a group over the Friday and Saturday and the festivities will be special.
We make the return from le Mele on Sunday, night crossing, and back to Faringdon on Bank Holiday Monday.
Do let us know asap ( through the Contact Page is fine!) if you're interested in joining the group - as cabins on the Ferry are getting booked up.
