Marlow Riders Trip to Kefalonia 2018
This trip to Kefalonia in Sept 2018 is for Marlow Riders, their partners and friends. General information about our trips and cycling in Kefalonia is on this website ,but the specific details about the Marlow Riders Trip are below.
Dates;13th to 18th September 2018
Update; I have now booked the accommodation for those who have paid deposits. There are just 2 rooms left. First come first served!
Overview; Six days away , 4½ days cycling , 2 fully supported and guided rides each day, accommodation and all food included.
Rides; On each day there will be an organised ride for two different ability groups, one of approximately 70 miles, and a second ride of approximatly 45 miles. They will be tailored to suit the ability of the riders. The plan is to ride together. Importantly, riders can switch between the 2 groups if you want harder or easier days. It is therefore suitable for a range of abilities from Jags, upwards and couples of different ability. So far most of the people coming are Jag/Leopard pace.
Numbers; There is space for a maximum of 20 riders; 14 already booked.
Hills; Kefalonia is hilly, and there are no flat options. There are short cuts on most days, and options for rest or relaxing days if wanted. You have to be reasonably confident of your ability to climb and descend. Speak to me first if you have any concerns. See 'Fitness'
Talk; If you’re interested, talk to the group you usually cycle with on the Saturday Club Run. Find people of a similar ability to yourself or friends you regularly cycle with. Get them to come along.
Support; The trip will be fully supported and guided. We have 4 very experience and highly trained leaders, 2 for each ride.There will be a support van with each group for assistance, with spares, water, food etc.
Accomodation; We will be staying in Magnolia Apartments. http://magnoliaapartments.gr/ There are 2 double rooms and also 6 apartments, each with a twin bedroom, a double room, shower room and kitchenette. The plan is for 3 to share an apartment. If you come in this configuration that will help, but ask if that doesn't suit.
