My name is Pascal and I am Irish born now living in Central France. I am organising non-profit tours for those that donít like the Ďtour company wayí or those that donít know how (or have the time) to do the groundwork. And of course those that canít afford a full fee but want to ride with like minded roadies in some of the best cycling regions on the planet.
For example the first is set for the 4th-9th May 2008 crossing the Pyrenees and 14 of the Cols there. The trip will cost NO MORE than £230 sterling if I get 18 riders. For that fee the riders get:
Local air port pick up/drop off, 5 nights in hotels, 5 breakfasts, 5 x buffet lunch at some scenic roadside spot (with foldaway chairs!!) support vehicle the entire route and 2 or 3 support riders.
There are more planned if I fill the first. Around 3 or 4 per year visiting different parts of France then other parts of Europe if the demand is there. If you want to go on the list of interested parties then drop me a line to firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you are in a position to inform others of this system then please do. Put it on your site or in a newsletter. It canít hurt.
