South Downs Way holiday

Sun 12th July - Wed 15th July

Please note that this event is now fully booked up.  If you still wish to go then contact Chris (see below) and he will add you to the ‘reserves’ list in case anyone drops out.
Ride the South Downs Way from Winchester to Eastbourne over 4 days from Sunday 12th to Wednesday 15th July.
Barry has done some fantastic research around accommodation which should allow all of us to stay together for the three nights – hostels (not YHA) at East Meon and Amberley and an inn on the A23 at Kingston near Lewes. Cost for the accommodation will depend on exactly which rooms are available/booked (singles/doubles/triples).
We have agreed that the fairest way to pay for the group’s accommodation is to share the overall cost equally between all riders, and we estimate the overall cost for accommodation to be £125 per person for the three nights.
We have 8 riders so far who have verbally committed to coming. Barry is going to book 10 places for each night tomorrow, and find out if more can be added if we need it. However, we do need final numbers by Friday 28th February – so if you can commit to joining us please email me before then – including those at this evening’s meeting so I have a complete record!.
As Barry is paying for the accommodation from his own resources, we will need payment as soon as possible after you have committed so he can be promptly reimbursed. I will let you know payment details soon.
If, after booking the 10 places, the accommodation becomes fully booked, then we will have to look at booking alternative accommodation nearby.
I will look into travel now we have a firm start date. We intend to use the Southern South Coast route, changing at Brighton and Southampton. We will have to travel in small groups to comply with restrictions on taking cycles on the trains. More details to follow.
(If you cannot commit by Friday 28th,you are still welcome to join us if you can organise your own accommodation and travel.)
Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks, and hope you can join us!
