    Bordeaux 2017

    Hi fellow GSER’s

    I have had many enquiries over the last month or so about running a trailer/s to Bordeaux giving access to the Pyrenees + Picos mountains etc. So I have been doing some homework on a suitable hotel with parking for the truck/s located close to the airport etc.
    I am now pleased to let you know that I will be running a trailer to Bordeaux in 2017 and a second trailer will be available if there is sufficient demand.

    General Plan.

    Transport
    Saturday 8th July 17 Load the bikes at shorts rec club Holywood rd Belfast
    Wednesday 12th July 17 Bikes will arrive in Bordeaux the early hours and be available from 8am and throughout the day depending on individual travel plans.
    Thursday 20th July 17 The bikes will be required to be back at the trucks for loading between 4 – 7pm that evening, a more detailed breakdown of individual loading times will be communicated closer to the time.
    Sunday 23rd July 17 Bikes will be available for collection in Belfast from 10am – 12noon.
    (The trailer capacity is 18 bikes)

    Flights
    Aer Lingus operates a daily flight Dublin to Bordeaux, (just watch out as the flight times differ each day).
    Easy Jet operates return flights on a Wednesday and Saturday Belfast to Bordeaux throughout the summer period.
    It will be up to you to book the relevant flights that suit you, there are many options available that can combine the 2 airlines, and you can also get another full days riding out of this trip if you fly out on Tuesday 11th July enabling you to pick your bike up @ 8am Wednesday morning.

    Hotel
    The hotel were the trucks will be parked is the Ibis Bordeaux Sud Pessac.

    Cost
    £390 per bike, a deposit of £190 to be paid by 1st Sept to secure your place, this will be based on a first come first served basis and a reserve list will then operate. The balance of £200 is to be paid by 1st April 2017.

    What to do now
    Contact me directly to show your interest and secure your place / places ASAP and I will send you further details.

    Point to note
    All the above information was e-mailed out a week ago to anyone who over the last 6 years has had there bike moved by me to Geneva, so at the present time 11 places on the first trailer are now filled leaving only 7 places left. Plus there is one bike only using the outbound leg so there currently is one space on the return leg if this fits in with anyone’s plans!

    As I said earlier a second trailer will be available if there is the demand and it can be filled!

    So please do not hold of booking your place because the second trailer will not be confirmed as a runner until it is filled so you may lose out.

    Any questions just give me a shout.

    Contact details boltoa1@hotmail.co.uk or 07773846146

    You do great work organising these trucks Andy. Fair play to you.

    Thread "stickified" now as is the norm.
    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.

    That's me booked now too. Thanks for all your help Andy and your work in setting this all up.


    For anyone else considering this do give Andy a shout as he really does have it well organised and all the bases covered.
