NOW SOLD OUT

Flights Ryanair London Stansted to Carcassonne

Thursday 6 June 13.00 – 16.00 (Flight RK72)

Monday 10 June 16.45 – 17.45 (Flight RK73)

Flights will change in price but, depending on your luggage choices, anticipate £100 to £150

Bike Hire from Velomondo Prices TBA but around £125 or under depending on type of bike. Our host can arrange this and will pick up and return bikes.

Accomodation £50 per night includes dinner, breakfast and airport transfers. Total £200 for four nights.

We think it should cost under £500 but you will need to book your own flights and prices will go up nearer the time.

Accomodation in Espezel (CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION/CONVERSION) is at the home of Gavin Grant who has been converting a property and we will be one of the early groups to use his new facility. Gavin is a cyclist we know from Twickenham CC and he rides in our online races. The maximum number of people will be 8 (with five confirmed already, leaving 3 places).
