Arrassing About - 9/10th September 2006

Another trip we are organising, the same bunch as the "Edward III and Henry V" trip.

Two day trip (with one overnight) to historic Arras and the surrounding Vimy region will provide opportunities for relaxing with a coffee at a pavement cafe, touring some of the local sites of interest and some socialising on the Saturday evening.

At least one new member will be along for the ride and possibly a couple of other new faces.

We plan to stay at the Mercure Atria Hotel in Arras centre, which has a special deal on at present of £46.00 per night, room only. The hotel also claims ‘public indoor parking’ whatever that means, but at least it is indoors where the bikes should be reasonably safe, not that Arras is a hotbed of bike theft, as far as I know. Booking through http://www.hotelclub.com/ gets a slightly cheaper rate inc. breakfast.

Departure would be on the 08:28 shuttle on Saturday, 9 September with a return to suit individuals but, probably around 19:00 on the Sunday.

Updates will be posted on the Blog with a similar heading.
If you are interested in coming and need more information, check the Blog for updates or call Nigel or myself on 07092 263119.
I'll post a report and pictures when it is all over.
