CTC Coventry & CTC Rugby rides for the week beginning Sunday 14th July 2019

Notices:

  • John Naughton is planning a tour to Mallorca next spring for 10-days from 14th April based at The Pollensa Park Hotel in Puerto Pollenca. The concept of the holiday is somewhat different from previous CTC Coventry tours in that it will be based in one hotel from where we will arrange day rides, walks and sightseeing.
  • The tour will be a jet2holiday package including Birmingham flights, transfers, and accommodation.
  • There are options for food and drinks: for 10 days B&B sharing a twin/double room the cost is currently £706 per person, or £861 inclusive of all meals and drinks. Single occupancy rooms are approximately £160 extra.
  • Members can book for part or more of the 10-day period.
  • It is anticipated that most members will hire bikes from a local recommended shop, where this year’s prices were £120 for 7 days.
  • John will look into the options of taking your own bike, which would incur costs for flight and transfer.
  • If you are interested, please contact John for more details.
