I am struggling to find any accom - if anyone has any space/knows of any, please let me know! I imagine there is already a waiting list for the bus shelters...

Don't panic!

I just booked an Ibis for two nights leading up to PBP - not cheap but after last time I want a decent couple of nights sleep prior! Plenty of Hotels within 20km - if you can't ride 20km to the start and on Sat then you're probably not in the right event :-) I went for (ironically) Trappes as it is on the train line to Rambouillet, three stops so I can ride over or not as the mood strikes.

Thanks - was hoping to find somewhere a bit closer as I am in the 84h 5.15am start on Monday morning!

I have a standard double room at the ibis Saint Quentin En Yvelines Velodrome https://www.accorhotels.com/gb/hotel-9462-ibis-saint-quentin-en-yvelines-velodrome/index.shtml booked for Saturday, Wednesday and Thursday nights (17, 22 & 23 Aug) that I can no longer use. The booking includes all you can eat buffet breakfast on each morning plus late checkout on Saturday (5 pm). I booked it early so got it all at the saver rate of £208.73 and I appear to be able to change the booking name online so there shouldn't be any drama. Please PM me if you'd like to take it off my hands.

I've nothing booked, but am just going to wait until June or so once I've done my qualifiers and worry about it then.

Imagine plenty of people will find life gets in the way and need to cancel bookings etc. Casting the Air BnB net out to 30km or so of the start throws up tons of options (albeit some of the cheaper options look like they might be sleeping in someone's garage  ;D)

I currently have a twin room at the Rambouillet Ibis Sunday night and my expected ride partner is now not likely to ride. So I may have space.

There is a place in Elancourt going at £12.88 for the Sunday night before the 84 hour start. Approx 10 miles away.

Are there any budget hotels close to Rambouillet still with vacancies on the 17th? I booked the velodrome a while back not realising the start had moved and now I find it is 24 kms away.
If you cant get Rambouillet then would there be a better place to be for easier access? Maybe I should look on airbnb.
Thanks

I'm in the same situation and can't be bothered changing.

There's a direct train between the two, plus I'll have time to kill on Sunday (and probably Saturday) so I might as well ride it.

I can now no longer do the ride so my other hotel booking, this time at the start in Ramouillet is available.

I have a double Classic Room at the Mercure Rambouillet Relays du Chateau Hotel https://www.accorhotels.com/gb/hotel-5954-mercure-rambouillet-relays-du-chateau-hotel/index.shtml booked for Saturday, Wednesday and Thursday nights (17, 22 & 23 Aug). The room has what the hotel describes as elegant decor, high quality bedding, includes tea and coffee making facilities, flat-screen TV, air conditioning and minibar plus free WIFI access. Late checkout is available on Saturday for €70. I also booked this one early so got it at the saver rate of £240.42 and I can change the booking name online.

Please PM me if you'd like to take it off my hands.

I have space at a chalet at Hutopia Rambouillet from 08/17/2019 to 08/23/2019

It's self catering and has a cooker/dishwasher etc etc

The chalet is a "cabane" https://europe.huttopia.com/en/hebergement/cabane-camping/

Last time I did PBP in 2011 I stayed in one at Hutopia Versailles.  That was great, the site was full of people doing PBP and the cabane chalet was lovely

The site in Rambouillet is about 4km from the start point
