    Easter is fri 10th April - mon 13th this year.

    So a Friday 10th start would suit the weather rather than a sat 4th April .

    So shall we say friday 10th April (easter friday) - return sunday 19th April.

    Tunnel crossing for 8am on the friday or a 7am because we loose an hour on the time change. A quick show of hands in the next couple of days on the time and that'll be sorted.

    The usual - 1st stop Bordeaux/ Bayonne - next stop Algerciras. Sunday morning across to Africa.

    It's a go'er - Buy the ticket, take the ride.

    But i'm not in charge, no silly questions, just turn up and go. Your all old enough not to be looked after, live a little.
    Will we get route cards and GPS files?

    Who will be Road captain and Tail ender?

    Where will we stay in Bordeaux? Is it all B&B?

    Unfortunately no

    Nahh way to slow and expensive.
    I'd use the C3 with the box trailer and stop at the BB's with the lads
    I have actually done Calais to Frejus in 20 hours, towing a 2 tonne trailer behind a Granada

    We'll get our own section soon just for this ride same as the other invite trips.
