Calpe trip

Some of us (7 so far) have booked to go cycling in Calpe, Spain next May.

If you’d like to join us, this is what we’ve booked. Everyone is responsible for their own booking so don’t ask me to sort it for you ;)

Flights are with Ryanair, East Mids to Alicante, Weds 15th May at 1415, returning Weds 22nd May at 1045. I paid £130 return including 20kg luggage but that could alter of course.

Hotel is the AR Roca Esmeralda in Calpe. Currently there’s a deal on via Booking.com which gives you 7 nights full board for £309 and you can reserve now and pay nothing until you get to the hotel. No idea how long that’ll last, normal price is quite a lot more (we won’t use the full board necessarily, it just happens to be cheaper than half board at the moment for some reason).

We’re currently sorting transfers and bike hire out but as rough guide, expect to pay around €130 for the bike and another €30 for the transfers. Ish.

If you want to come, post on here once you’ve booked and I’ll add you to the whatsapp group we’ve set up.

Just bumping this up again in case anyone missed it in the pre-xmas panic.
Also to say, if you're interested, we've got a deal with one of the local bike hire companies too (closer to £100 than £130 now) so check in here before booking anything.

Oh, and it’s a kind of ‘inters’ group that are going so I’d imagine it’ll be a bit more training camp than leisure holiday.

Simply to day the idea appeals but the dates don't work for me

Bumping this back up for the benefit of somebody who was asking me about it on Saturday.
Of course if anyone else wants to join us you're more than welcome - there are currently 9 of us booked onto the trip.

If there is anyone who would like to join these chaps, let me know as I can no longer go, and have Ryan Air tickets which can be switched to someone else.
