Anyone Fancy A Week or so Away 15th April?

Postby DaveH » Jan 6th, '18, 21:14

I have a gap in my diary and fancy getting away for a week biking. I stopped for a day in Salamanca in Spain on my way back from a Sahara trip on my little CRF250 before Christmas ... and what I saw of it was fantastic. I'd love to go back on my sportsbike.

Anyone fancy it?

Ferry from Portsmouth or Plymouth to Bilbao or Santander and then 250 miles South to biking heaven and a spot of sun. We could do it independently or take a look at the Taunton-based Tour Company mentioned in the article above. Either would suit me. Equally, if anyone has any better suggestions for a destination.

Stayed in Salamana en route the Algarve a few years back.

Very easy to get to same afternoon from late pm Santander ferry (at that time).

City looked nice, didn't hang around next day as wanted to get to Med that day.

A few mates on Ducatis are showing a bit of interest ... take a look here if you are interested in possible plans @Jug_Inspector https://www.ducatiforum.co.uk/threads/a ... ril.56841/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

At the moment I'm thinking of taking my 990 SuperDuke :-)

Very rough guess about £1K all-in I would guess - ferry, hotels, fuel, beer and food
