European Trip

Every year during the week ahead of Easter, the Willow Wheelers travel to a European destination for a week cycling.  In 2016 and 2017, we went to Albufeira (Portugal); in 2015 to Rimini (Italy) and in 2014 to Agde (France).

The trip is open to all Willow Wheelers Club members, but as places are limited participation is prioritised for those members who actively participate in Club events throughout the cycling year.  Unfortunately, due to the success of previous trips and whilst we will try to accommodate as many members as possible, we may not be able to accommodate all applicants for places. Hence, priority will be given to members who participate in Club activities.

The cost of the trip (approx. €900 per person in recent years) covers transfer of the bicycles by container to and from the destination, accommodation, breakfast and evening meal.

These trips provide an excellent opportunity for all participants to enjoy a new environment from a cyclists perspective and for both adults and the boys to enjoy a common activity.

You can get a flavour of the 2016 trip to Portugal by reading the trip summary and the 6th form view on this website.

Members planning to participate on a Club trip to continental Europe should complete the Member information form.
