    When I went to Sids do a couple of years ago (bearing in mind I was away for 9 days in total), I left on a Thursday & took a ferry to Cherbourg arriving @ 13.00 local time.

    Spanked it down the non toll motorway & stayed o/n in a town called Saumur.

    Then on the Friday, took a minor roads route to Sids arriving around 16.30 ish.

    That's, again, a very kind invitation.
    I've tried to attend a few times and never made it yet.
    However, if I cancel my Misano MotoGP reservation, I could visit your weekend event and then tour about before my next tour of Spain / Portugal starting in Potes on the 18th September.
    I stopped camping after Assen MotoGP last year as 30ºC all day, for four days, makes your tent somewhat smelly!
    Do you have a local B &B I can book for your weekend part duration, please?

    Many thanks,

    Iain

    Yes, Saumur is a great place to stop with numerous hotels. We stayed there last month on way up.

    Re B&Bs, unfortunately Covid/ lockdown has killed a few off. I'll ask my friends what's available and post on here.

    There's a B&B just up the road from me run by a jovial Englishman we know as Jag John. Lovely chap, I post up his details.

    All bikes welcome even several Harleys. Indeed, not just bikes, come in any vehicle you like. Cars, motorhomes etc, planes whatever. I have friends flying down to local airport in Bergerac which is under an hour away. I usually collect them.

    There are some awesome empty roads around here and some very easy off road trails.

    The important things are to just enjoy the location, the food and drink and just CHILL OUT.

    Regarding questions, please ask on this thread as its easier to answer a question once to update everyone.
    Cheers.

    Thanks Sid, will look at trying to get there this year, I've not been to your place in France, but have fond memories of your Devon weekends. No airhead, but a Himalayan is in the same spirit
    Out and about

    I am new to this forum and well impressed with the generosity, thank you. I apologize in advance if I missed the relevant info, do you need early bookings and how far in advance please? This could be a fantastic trip to start putting names to faces ......
