Wed 13th: Day 1 – Calais to Le Touquet

Travel to Calais from Dover, then enjoy a stunning ride round the coast to the pretty town of Le Touquet.

Dover: Meet the support crew at the entrance to the Eastern Docks between 08:30 and 08:45. For those who put bikes onto the truck in Beckenham, the bikes will be offloaded in Dover for you to ride onto the ferry, luggage will stay on the truck and go to the hotel. For those who have made your own way to the ferry, load your baggage onto the truck which will go to the hotel and keep your bike with you to ride onto the ferry.

You will need your passport with you, not in your luggage.

Start: We will be setting off on the ride straight from the ferry so you need to get off the ferry ready to ride; your luggage will not be in Calais, it’s going straight to the hotel.

Staying at: Hippotel, Le Touquet.

Dinner: Pre-arranged in the hotel.
