The 2014 Hayling to Paris ride is now taking registrations. a £100 deposit secures you a place on the ride.
Full details are now available on www.hayling-cycle-ride.org.uk .
Riders will have a choice of either cycling both ways or from Paris to Hayling. The “Two Way” route is approximately 380 miles, the “One Way route is approximately 225 miles.
The “Two Way” Riders will leave Portsmouth for Caen on the overnight ferry on Sunday 13th July 2014.
After spending the 1st night in Evreux on the 14th July riders will head for Paris where they will be met by those who are doing the “One Way” ride.
All will leave Paris and ride to Rouen on the 16th July and then on Le Havre on the 17th.
The following day riders will spend the night in Caen where a last night party is booked at Caen Castle.
Riders will leave France on the morning of Saturday 19th July.
The “Two Way” ride will likely be priced at £475 and the “One Way” at £395 which includes travel and accommodation. That’s extremely good value! You are, however, expected to make a donation to charity – either directly or via sponsorship. Even so, that’s a lot less than you’d have to pay for any other organised ride.
I – and many others – can testify that the ride is good fun and very well organised.
If you’re not sure about whether you can manage it, or whether you’ll have someone to go round with, there will be a number of practice rides. They will start with short rides, and extend your range as the rides progress. That will give you an opportunity to meet people before the ride itself. You can contact the organisers via this page: www.hayling-cycle-ride.org.uk/contact.php .
There will be several Cycle Hayling supporters going. You can contact us if you’d like: advice, help with getting ride-fit, or help with joining a group doing the ride.
