    First day meeting?

    Just wondered - how many of us will meet at Folkestone/Calais to ride down the first day, and/or where will everyone else be starting in France/Belgium?

    booked on the "OMG its early" shuttle 07.20.... staying with a pal so will be buying them dinner somewhere on the sat night...
    I am not an early riser plus I do tend to always be faffing about for ages getting ready to ride so expect i will be getting there just in time,
    so meet on the train, I guess?
    Look out for an fjr1300....it could be me!

    I will meet you on Sunday evening in the hotel.
    Riding on Friday to Germany for the weekend and riding down to Belgium on Sunday after lunch. Long time since I rode 500 miles in one day

    yep, thats an 06.50 latest checkin, plus travel time to the shuttle, might as well not bother going to bed...except I have trained myself over long hard years to stay in bed asleep as long as possible and certainly no earlier than 9.30 ish...........

    I do sympathise with those who have to get up early to hold a job down,as long as they dont get all macho about it... just happy its not me having to do it,
    funnily enough it will not be a challenge to get out of bed to go ride me bike in the dolomites etc

    How will you get to Calais - are you riding there from another French port, or will you be getting a ferry to Calais?
