What is happening in 2014?
The planning for the 2014 trip is well underway. We're off to Cuneo in Italy for a week of wonderful roads, great company and some classic Italian food and wine. If you have any ideas/suggestions relating to the 2014 trip then please contact David Mc
The trip will start in Kent on the morning of Saturday 14th June. Saturday and Sunday will be spent riding to Cuneo where we'll then spend the week. We'll leave Cuneo on the morning of Saturday 21st June and will return to the UK on the afternoon of Sunday 22nd.
Where will we stay?
We are booked into the Hotel Royal Superga which is located in the centre of town and thus easy walking distance to a number of bars and restaurants. The hotel will cost 55 Euros per person per night for B&B. For 3.5 Euros per bike per night we also have dedicated secure parking for the bikes. The hotel manages to score 9.1 on booking.com

How will we get there?
The Old Gits will meet at Dover on the morning of Saturday 14th June. We'll catch the P&O ferry to Calais and ride from Calais to Cuneo with a stop over at Bourgoin-Jallieu about 20 miles South East of Lyon. The Hotel Mister Bed is booked for the Saturday evening giving us around 500 miles of French AutoRoute's during Saturday. Sunday the 15th June will be a run of 220 to 250 miles into Cuneo, avoiding motorways.
The return run will see us leaving Cuneo on the morning of Saturday 21st June and riding approximately 590 miles on motorways to the Hôtel Première Classe in Laon. Sunday morning will then be a run of about 140 miles back to Calais for an early afternoon P7O ferry back to Dover then home.
