EIC 2017 Finland travel options.

Post  Guzzer on Fri 09 Sep 2016, 22:12

Right then folks,

As you must be aware, next year's EIC is to be held in Finland in August & although it'd be great to get a large number of us to attend, in reality it's unlikely.

As mentioned to attending members at the Gateshead meet in August we need several travel options to explore to make the EIC more feasible for members to attend.

So could all interested parties open up a new SEPERATE topic in this section with their individual travel ideas so we can get several options to post on & explore/ bounce ideas around.

Hopefully this will keep each travel method seperate & easier for members to post on those which may interest them.

It'll also give the club an idea of numbers able to attend & the committee can then decide on the amount of possible  funding the club could provide.

Thanks in advance for your ideas .

Seems to be the way to go as far as we are concerned get the bike shipped out and then fly over, would be good to go for a week or so and travel the country a little. If we can't get them shipped over I would consider hiring a bike.

Jessica was going to get a flight to meet me in Finland for the Euro meet but she is getting quoted £1600 Shocked

   Surely there is something cheaper out there. Anyone found anything?

I've checked flights 2 weeks ago - from Birmingham £100 return flight.

 Thanks, I will pass on to the better half. Even with a cab ride to Birmingham it would be cheaper then the prices Jessica was looking at.

OK, found the reason. Jessica was looking at flights to the airport that is local to the meet, only 20 minutes away. Helsinki is £125 return from London but is 6 hours away by bus. Anyone want to share a cab?
