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.

Cost; The cost is  £800 per person plus flights if we get 15 or more riders , or £850 pp plus flights if there less then 15.  Everything  is included in the cost including  snacks and lunch.

All food  and  accommodation is included. Everything is covered  from the moment you land in Kefalonia  to the time you leave .This includes transfers,  accommodation  based on 2 sharing ,  all meals including lunch , drink stops , snacks ,  guiding , bike support , basic repairs and bike parts eg. tubes , brake pads etc.
