Dream Wheelers 2019

Itinerary

Please note that exact details and timings will be added as they are confirmed.

Day One – Thursday 2nd May

Meeting in Portsmouth, you’ll catch the overnight ferry to Caen. This time is your own, so if you need a good 8 hours’ sleep before hopping on the saddle, or if you prefer to unwind with a few drinks at the bar, it’s your choice.

Day Two – Friday 3rd May

It’s straight off the ferry to tackle the first 50 or 75 miles from Caen; taking you past Sword, Juno and Omaha beaches, before arriving at the first hotel: Grandchamp-Maisy.

Day Three – Saturday 4th May

After hopefully an ache-free night’s sleep, it's off for the second 50 or 75 mile stretch, which takes you on to Utah beach. Then through beautiful French countryside to Cherbourg for your second night's stay.

Day Four – Sunday 5th May

Riders have the day in Cherbourg to enjoy the market, museums and cafes, before catching the 5pm ferry back to Portsmouth. Arriving back at 7pm, you then have the bank holiday Monday to rest those weary legs.
