  3. Mike Thomas is planning a CTC Coventry Group tour to Normandy in May 2017. The basic plan is to sail from Portsmouth to Caen, enjoy 7 or 8 days cycling ending in Cherbourg, then return to Portsmouth, which is easy to get to by bike, rail, or car and makes a linear route possible. Accommodation will be in 2-3 star hotels or guest houses, and the maximum daily distance will be 50-miles. Normandy is a popular cycling region with a mix of scenery, culture and cuisine. To the French Normandy is the land of Camembert, Calvados, cider and seafood. Some visits to WW2 sites will be included and we’ll cycle through The Suisse Normandy, the Vire Valley, and the Parc Naturel Regional de Normande-Maine in the centre of the Region. Numbers will be limited to a maximum of 10 riders. If you are interested in this tour, please contact Mike on 02476 692792 or mike@mikethomas.org.uk.
