Holland Trip; Sat 20th to Sat 27th June 2020

This June 20th to 27th we are planning to return to Dordrecht, Holland. We will use the overnight ferry from Harwich to Hook of Holland, staying in Dordrecht for 5 nights. Members will also be able to make their own alternative travel arrangements; partners (riding or non riding) would be welcome.

Last year we had 35 participants and 4 riding groups; A, B1, B2 and C (who had a great times combining shorter rides with train, boat trips and site-seeing). The cycleways in Holland are unbelievably good, safe, well signposted with neither traffic nor hills!

We enjoyed a good meal on the ferry in both directions; the restaurant was both pleasant and clean – as were the cabins.

The hotel was basic but clean with very pleasant staff. The rooms contained two single beds and a pair of bunk beds. Some people shared, others had a room to themselves. The hotel was great value for money; staying half board helped keep down the cost of the trip.

This year the rooms are £260 pp single occupancy and £230 pp double occupancy for 5 nights including food!

The ferry cost this year  are between £170 to £200 return which includes cabin, excellent evening meal and breakfast.

There are 33 people that have expressed an interest to date.  Display
