Old Gits 2020 - Northern Spain - June 2020 - CANCELLED
« on: October 23, 2019, 09:40:53 am »
Cancelled
Due to COVID-19


I'm currently finalising the Old Gits 2020 trip to Northern Spain. Our plan is to leave Portsmouth on the afternoon of Friday 12th June, spend 4 nights in Pamplona then 3 nights in Ojedo before getting the ferry back to Portsmouth for the evening of Sunday 21st June.

Details are available on the Old Gits website at www.old-gits.org/thenexttrip

We have 20 places reserved on the ferries and have allocated 15 now 16 of them. Anyone interested in taking one of the remaining places should PM me as soon as possible.

Being curious : do you all ride in the same group ? 20 riders in one single group, isn't that a little "oversized" ?

Indeed, 20 is WAY too many for a run out. We break up into groups of 2 to about 5 and all do different things. some people even do solo days. It's "do what you want" knowing that the hotel has a whole group of other people with the same interest and who speak the same language.

It is not an organised tour as much as common hotels and ferry crossings.

This photo as on an Old Gits trip to The Picos back in 2014.

As you can see there were a few K1300S bikes there.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Possibly the nicest picture of a K group. I particularly like the excluded bikes shunted to the periphery.

Ferry rate now confirmed. I've managed to get a group discount rate on the return crossing of £495. That's bike and rider, with a single occupancy cabin (for the rider, not the bike … ;)  ) both there and back.

There are ONLY 20 bike spaces on the ferry and we currently have them all reserved but I can only hold them for a couple of weeks. If you are thinking of joining us then now is the time to commit. We have 4 spaces left and, when they're gone …

Two of the group have decided they'd like to ride to Spain and back which means we have two ferry spaces available.  If you're interested in joining us in Northern Spain for a week of wonderful roads then drop me a PM and I'll let you know all the details.

It really is a nice group to be with. I have ridden in different groups and on my own during the day but its so nice to get back and eat with friends in the local cafes etc.
Its not always the destination that counts its the ride, having a destination just stops you going round in circles.
