August 2007 : travellers meeting in Sisteron (Provence-France)

hello,

With Grant and Susan, we had to cancel the official 2007 Horizons Unlimited Motorcycle Travellers' Meetings. Sorry.

Alain ( http://www.provence-moto-rando.org/ ) and I (and a few friends) are still trying to do something UNOFFICIAL, no real organisation (people sleep and eat wherever they want in Sisteron - camping, hotels, restaurants, etc ... possible/available), NO registration/subscription, no money involved, so it's FREE.
Of course, we can provide full info to find some nice camping or hotel or similar in order to gather easily, instead of being spread all over the place ...

For those who know Sisteron, in the Provence / South Alps of France, it's wonderfull.

DATE :
weekend of august 24-25-26 2007. You can come some days before and after.

PLACE :
Sisteron, Provence (France)
http://www.sisteron.com/

WHAT TO DO ?
Riding in the French Alps Provence and around, on-road and off-road, firecamps, sleep in the mountain, etc ... in a friendly atmosphere ... we wish it travellers orientated.
Alain can be our guide (with friends if necessary, depending on the number of riders coming) during the weekend only (he has to work during the week).
He was for example proposing : saturday go to "gorges du verdon", sunday go to "col de la bonnette" (l2 very famous rides).
And can give us some kind of road books during the week to organise some rides by ourselves (without him) during the day.

We'll try to "advertise" around, like here on the HUBB, Advriders.com, etc ... don't hesitate to talk about it around also

cheers,

nb : any questions or suggestions or requests, pls just tell ...

The French equivalent to poster in this context is "affiche", I think: a large paper advertisment for sticking to a wall.

re

thanx
we were not thinking about something big with big communication means but why not a poster ?
let me say it to alain
we thought of a communication more "by word of mouth" ("de bouche à oreille" in French).
cheers

Thumbs up hello vincent

it was good to meet you again in Belgium. I have marked Sisteron for August 2007 in our calendar, but as I dont really know what will happen tomorrow it is hard to say if we (Damaris and I) are coming.

but we still want to spend time in Paris, hopefully this winter, thank you again for the invitation and we hope to find a weekend/week to come up.

more later and greetings to Alain

mika and damaris
