    Next August (week commencing 1/8/16 to be precise,) we intend to go away on a group cycling holiday in Foreign Abroad. Our target price for 3 or 4 nights away (mon-thurs or similar) is £500. This price to include accommodation, flights/bike transfer and car hire/fuel. It would be great if you can join us, but please only vote on this if you genuinely think you might come, that way the chosen destination will represent the preference of those attending.

    Following many a discussion in the past few months it appears that 3 possible bike holiday destinations have been cropping up more than most, so here are our choices (in no particular order.)

    ALPS - based in Bourgs d'Oisins; lot's of little hills (Galibier, Alpe d'Huez, Croix de Fer etc.)

    PYRENEES - based in bagneres de luchon; more little lumps (Toumalet, Peyresourde, Col d’Aspet etc.)

    PROVENCE - based in aix en provence; nice normal cycling in hot weather (including a day out on the Ventoux.)

    If you are genuinely interested, please register your interest on this thread and cast your vote (please only vote once  Evil or Very Mad )

    I'm only leaving this vote open for 60 days as I think we need to make a final decision in the new year with a view to booking everything early spring.

    In line with WCG PTA rules and regs I feel like I am going against tradition by inputting to a group decision... Is the committee in recess?

    Anyway, I'm interested.

    Always interested but as you know it depends on firm dates. Provence would be my preferred option but wherever we decide I need to know place and dates by end of December at the latest so I can schedule my family holiday around it.

    I've taken the hot bottom and cold top option of Ventoux.

    I've always wanted to go to the moon!
