We have listed below the availability the booked trips and availability for 2018, as of October 28th '17.
In red are the trips that are booked, so those dates are not available. In green are the dates that are still available, although within those there may be dates that I am holding for groups while they consider their options or assemble their group. If you'd like me to do the same for your group, just give me a call on 07984 065329 or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
From 1st Jan to 29th March available We can go anywhere you like whenever you like. Some winter/spring suggestions: head south to find the sun on the Cote d'Azur or maybe to Girona where the Pro's hang out in the off-season. Or day trips and weekends to Flanders and northern France.

From 11th to 14th May provisionally-booked 2017's 'Canterbury-Amsterdam in 3 days' group coming back to do the same direction but this time following the Channel coastline from Normandy up to Calais in 4 days through lovely .
19th to 24th May Booked Clangers do Winchester to Paris: 11 folk have been brought to us by the lovely Fiona, who rode with us on Ventoux in 2017. This time it's the opposite end of France and a little less hardcore as they take a leisurely approach to getting to Paris. 5 days oughta do it!
From 30th May to 4th June provisionally-booked 2017's Way of the Roses group are looking to go a day or two and 70 miles longer and take on the Lôn Las Cymru, which weaves 250 miles north-south through wonderful Wales from the tip of Anglesey to Chepstow.
8th to 11th June Booked Mont Ventoux Long Weekend: Neal enjoyed it so much in 2017 that he is going to come back and do Mont Ventoux Long Weekend again, with 7 new recruits (as well as coming back 3 weeks later with his original group for their Pyrenees trip - hardcore indeed!).
15th to 20th June Booked Mont Ventoux & Provence Week: They came to the Dordogne in 2016, the Alps in 2017 and this year it's 6 days based around Mont Ventoux but exploring further afield.
23rd to 26th June available It's only enough time for a short weekend - no time to get to the distant south, but would suit a shorter trip like a London-Paris, or UK-Amsterdam, or Flanders, or a UK trip.
29th June to 3rd July Booked Pyrenees Long Weekend: They did Normandy in 2016, Mont Ventoux in 2017, and so they head further south to the wonderful Pyrenees in 2018.
6th July to 10th July available Enough time for a short one. Includes the Grand Départ weekend of the Tour de France in the Vendée region of western France. All of the high mountain cols of the Alps, Pyrenees & Mont Ventoux and all other destinations may be possible, but time would be very tight!
13th to 16th July Booked Alps Long Weekend: 4 guys who joined one of our open Ventoux groups in 2017, are assembling their own group for an Alps Long Weekend in 2018.
