Somme Battlefields Weekend
April 2021 | May 2022
What you can expect
Experience the major and minor sights of the 1916 Battle of the the Somme. seeing places the tourist buses simply cannot go. 1 July 1916 is etched on the national conscience and we examine the actions of that day, as well as the remainder of the battle which lasted into November 1916.
For 2017 we have enhanced and extended this tour to give you a superb insight into the entirety of the Battle of the Somme. Along the way we will visit sites large and small, and hear a few war poems in the places they were written.
The terrain in the Somme region is ideal for cycling; this is chalk farmland and the hills are neither too steep nor too long. Many novice cyclists have happily ridden our routes here! Because of the amount to see the days can be long although the time on the bike can represent less than half of the time spent out and about. For this reason we've graded it moderate, not because the riding is hard. The support van will be in close contact so will ensure that you have everything you need, meaning you can travel light and benefit from all of its refreshments too!
NB: It is possible to arrive late on the Friday and depart on the Monday evening for those needing to get back for work etc.
Single supplement (for those requiring guaranteed single occupancy): £175.
4 nights in comfortable hotels with breakfast, 3 picnic lunches, 3 evening meals included.
