It's nearly always a Friday / Saturday / Sunday - 3-day event
Always a fairly small group. Max group size is normally 10-15 bikes. Usually less. Start from Nottingham 9:15am on Friday. Many guests coming up from the South tend to stay over Thursday night in Nottingham the night before. I can arrange accommodation for you. We usually have a "get to know you" session involving beer, curry, and maybe a trip to England's Oldest Inn.
There are sometimes exceptions to the standard tour. If there is a high proportion of returning guests, who have already done the standard "Best of Three" tour before, I sometimes use a different place for a base and I alter the riding routes to suit. All discussed by email exchanges with potential tour guests..
Tour Costs - for all Best of three "mini-tours"
1 rider, 1 bike, happy to share a twin room with another tour guest
1 rider in a single room / or singly occupying double, twin or family room.
Couple (or friends) on 1 bike, happy to share a double or twin room with each other
£165 for rider and £99 for the pillion passenger.
Note - pillion passengers cost me exactly the same in accommodation as the riders do. However, I'll allow this discount, because pillions make better use of double & twin rooms, and it's one less bike to look after (or break down!)
Camping version £99, where possible. (There are camspites close to our hotel accommodation in both Dent, Cowgill and Ravenglass)
I can arrange accommodation in Nottingham for anyone requiring this on Thursday night before the tour commences. This is approx £40 per head, depending on the hotel used.
