Our overseas tours started in 2012 and have become an annual event.
The 2019 tour is to the Loire Valley - taking the overnight ferry from Portsmouth to Caen (Ouistreham) and using a hired van for 2 people with all the bikes and the others by trian travel to Tours and ride to Villandry, staying 4 nights with day-rides at the hotel we used in 2013 and then a transit ride before 4 nights at Gennes (between Saumur & Angers) and another ride for 1 night at Angers before travelling home by the same van, train and ferry combination.
We are 10 : RobG (Capt Mainwaring), JonP (Sgt Wilson), RichardA (Corporal Pichet), Jenni, Judith, Keith, Linda, Joan (Mme Pike), Clive and RobT (who will probably become Pte Pike being the youngest in the platoon)
[The Dad's Army soubriquets came about on the first tour to Ypres in 2012 - wrong war, and can't remember why/how - and the Corporal as a result of unauthorised ordering of pichets of red wine]
