We are going down on friday the 18th and staying in brugge overnight. I saw those photos of the French coast between Ostende and Bologne and changed all our plans so we could ride that road towards Normandy on the Saturday morning. If we do not appear to be making good enough time we can always get onto the motorway which runs parallell all the way to Normandy.
We will start back on Saturday 26th July. As far as I know there will be 3 of us on 2 bikes, so if you want to meet up somewhere and ride towards Holland that would be great.
