SSB Aviators Bike Tour 2014
« on: June 17, 2014, 05:03:44 pm »
As every year for now the last ten years, last week was our annual SSB Bike Tour. This year we decided to pay our tribute to the Braves who gave their lives for our freedom almost one century ago!

Everything started with our gathering in Gavrelle (North of France, near Arras) when the British Contingent met the French scout:



Wednesday we begun our journey by going through the Somme Battlefields, we stopped at:
The Newfoundland Memorial:


as well as the Thiepval Memorial:


We had lunch by the Roupy Airfield


On Thursday we took a light break by visiting the former Gueux Formula One Grand Prix Circuit (by Reims)


In the afternoon we went on by paying our respects to the Ferme de Navarin Monument (east of Reims):


We finished the day on a much lighter note by visiting a Maison de Champagne


Friday, last day of our Tour, we went to Verdun



Douaumont


and the Fort de Vaux



To conclude this Great Tour we had our Gala Dinner on Friday night


Overall 1400 kms for the froggy but more than 2000 for our British Contingent
Despite the topic retained for this year Tour we had lots of fun.
All of that with great weather, excellent accomodation and great camaraderie and friendship.
Very much looking forward to next year edition
