Thought I'd get the ferry to Bilbao/Santander and maybe ride back. But depends on time and where the meet actually is.

Looking forward to this! thumbs

This sounds great to me, I have ridden all the way to Faro in Portugal twice before and both times spent a couple of weeks riding around southern spain. Can I suggest a good stop point for those riding down would be in Saintes France, about 300-350 miles from channel, I have used the municipal campsite several times, very friendly, cheap and great facilities and interesting town to look round for any that want to stop for an extra night. My normal next stop in Burgos in northern spain this is about 350 miles ride from Saintes and 100 miles from Bilbao/Santander (so possible meet point for those catching the long distance ferry), bit biased here as I know the owner of Bar san Bruno, he is also a biker and member of Sindicato Bobber club again all very friendly. If you all want, once we have numbers, I can speak to him to find somewhere good to stay nearby (camping or cheap rooms). Of course this will all depend on the final destination

I've heard rumours of the north east coast of spain so from Santander 700km ish but another option would be St Malo 1200km ish actual venue allowing.
St Malo is an overnight crossing going out and daytime on the return (or it was) so you can get away with only a cabin on the outbound.

I used the Portsmouth-St Malo outbound crossing two years ago and you can get away with a reserved seat at about £5, just don't expect much comfy sleeping lol

I see the excitement has set in Laughing  I'll be sure to book my time off work as soon as the new year comes round, I'll then start making some arrangements and hopefully have a less intense journey this time round! thumb

Looking at my shift rota for next year its panned out quite well... If I book my 4 shifts (30th May-2nd June); that'll give me from 26th May-6th of June as holiday.

I've now updated the main post at the top of this thread with the information released today; further to the above can I please remind everyone not to make your own bookings directly with the hotel.

The Spanish Intruder Clubs are negotiating a package and as soon as this has been agreed the booking information will be made available to you.

Looks like we've got some planning to do... dance

St Malo to venue is about 750 miles with two or three route options avoiding motorways, do'able in five days.
They do say its not the destination but the journey there that counts.

Sheila & myself are hoping to go via and although the nearest
airport is Girona, its also VERY expensive for flights, so its a LOT cheaper to fly into Barcelona which
is about 1 hour drive away from the hotel.
