    Saw your photos on the Devon site and it did look a bit wet.

    It's been a very wet winter here as well but we did have a great few days trail riding at the beginning of March, just luck of the draw although I'm sure we'll have nice weather in May:thumb

    I need to confirm numbers for Dinner, Camping and Breakfast for Sunday night 12th and Friday 17th. The price is €34 per person per night. I have booked for 26 with one veggie menu.

    You only need to let me know if you are NOT going to be there or if you need a veggie menu.

    If your plans aren't firm for the Friday you will be able to change before we set off on Monday.

    The campsite want to know by this Sunday.

    Not quite that long now but some quite challenging bits on the long route.

    25 booked in for camping, dinner and breakfast Sunday and Friday.

    There is an event in the village on Sunday which involves a lot of runners and mountain bikes passing through the campsite to cross the weir. Should be all over by 5pm.

    The camping on Sunday and Friday is at Camping Clupeau which is on the river here near Cherveix-Cubas

    The full decimal GPS co-ords are N45.30017, E001.13143. Just say you are with the Fleming group.

    I've told the campsite owner to expect a few of you to turn up on Saturday night.
