A blatant rip off of PhilW's previous post (I'll buy you beer as payment Phil ;D).

I too have bit the bullet regarding booking the ferry and a cabin:

Thu 15th August 2019 23:00 outbound
Fri 23rd August 2019 23:59 inbound

Four berth cabin for both ways so no need to rough it in a chair or on the floor.  A berth in the cabins is £27.50 to cover you both ways.  First come first served.

Cheers

Ian

Plenty of opportunity of buy beers before ferry if the meetup is as per 2015.

I was wondering if the social life started then  ;D

Looks like I'm not as popular as you Phil, only got one tentative taker so far, so I may be able to fart to my hearts content without worrying about upsetting anybody!

Hey Ian

I'll grab one to stop my indecision about how to get there...

Yes, there was a pub quiz at the meeting point last time.  Ride down from Dieppe is nice, starting with the Avenue Verte and breakfast at a Tabac in Forges (or may have been Neufchatel), then a long cider lunch later on...

I have pointed another rider in your direction but he can be quite slow to do stuff.  Sure you will fill your cabin.

Sounds like a perfect start to an adventure, I'm looking forward to all aspects of it!

I responded to you yesterday on FB requesting one of the berths.

Anyway, ferry now booked, cabin sorted, need to book campsite within easy ride of the start. That's it then, all I need to do is ride, and how hard can that be?

Yes Bob, you were the person I was referring to as tentative i.e. subject to ferry booking  :thumbsup:

I think Huttopia is the nearest campsite to the start, I'm in 2 minds about camping or going B&B.

I presume that you have already paid for your crossing and the cabin. If that is the case, I need to pay you. If you send me a PM I will sort it.

I have a couple of berths and beds booked in an air BnB 7k from Rambouillet if anyone is interested. Ferrey arrangements as upthread.

Looks like the late night outbound ferry is full for cyclists, though not for drivers.
Wheel meet again, don't know where, don't know when...

Make that 2 trikes!

Although on every other ferry I've been on I'm lodged with the motorcycles.
