The Northern part of France seems to be quite well defined as far as Tours. There is a huge gap of some 620kms from Tours to Limoux.

I have traced a likely direct route through the major towns which would quite possibly been passed through on the way down.

Tours à Limoux - Google Maps

Chateauroux, Limoges,Brive, Cahors, Montaubon, Toulouse.

All these places would have been fairly large towns even in 1912.

If there is no definite map of the route taken, I can research the Govt archive and see if I can find a map of the major roads in France at that time. Would that be of any use to you??

I live 40kms west of Limoges, so if Limoges is considered to be a convenient stopping point en route, I can help with any local arrangements you may want to make.

On the other hand, it might be more practicable for people to join up with Geoff and Gary next year and ride a bit of the way with them. Whatever works.
I'd just ride with Geoff and Gary then, will more info (dates etc) be posted here as it comes available?
If they need a local for information or anything, they can contact me off course.

Talking Northern Irish Leg

Ref when making a booking is FEON. The phone no is +353 (0)74 9721014. Secure overnight parking is available in an adjoining bank carpark but I need to know the numbers so please post on here if you're going. The Central Hotel (close to the Abbey) have quoted the same rates but don't seem to have access to the secure parking so if you're planning on going get in contact with the Abbey asap. Bar food will be available and people I've spoken to seem to prefer this approach to an organised sit-down meal, so that's what we'll do.
Hi Glenboy

Just thought i would let you know that our MCC the Downriders are considering joining up in the northern ireland half of the trip. Do we need to organise with anyone or give details etc or just meet up on the 24th at Derry?

Many thanks

Update for uk leg of the clancy run

I am looking to camp out near Chester. There are several campsites in the area. As I don't know how many riders will be on board we need to allow for several pitches. If anyone can recommend a site let me know otherwise I will pick one off the map that I hope will meet our requirements.

As for the start of the ride on Saturday 27th Oct at 9am does anyone know of a good meeting point either in or near Glasgow?

As we have to cover over 260 miles a day to reach Tilbury by Sunday evening we will have to bypass some of the major towns to avoid riding at night! However we can still follow the route in principle.

It would be good to have more time to be able to visit some of the site and pubs that Clancy visited but to finnish the ride in two days we'll have to press on.

I can understand that those with more time may wish to carry out the ride in their own style.

Any suggestions will be welcome.

Cheers, Rupert.

UK leg of the Clancy Run update.

Further to my last message I will have to withdraw from this event for an unforseen personal reason.

For confirmation of timings and routes etc you will need to confirm with Feargal, who is running the show.

I will be sorry to miss it. But good luck to everyone who takes part.

Buena ruta!!

It's a real pity that you can't do the run Rupert, but not to worry, as long as we remember the great man at this time, that's the main thing.

By the way, I am only "running the show" in Ireland and Nth Ireland. What happens in the UK or anywhere else is entirely up to the biking communities there. I've just sown the seed - whether it grows or not is up to you.

Of course it's entirely feasible and indeed welcome for people to do just a small bit of the run if that's what suits. Some of the participants in the Irish leg will just be doing a portion of the run in Ireland.

Another alternative will emerge next year when Geoff Hill and Gary Walker set off on their recreation of the entire Clancy trip. They will be blogging and posting details of their progress along the route and people will be able to tag along with them for a bit.

100 years ago today the guys were uncrating their Henderson machines in Dublin and making final preparations. That reminds me, must check my oil level

We will be stopping for lunch at the Giants Causeway (Causeway Hotel) arriving there about 1.30 or 2pm on the 24th. After that we will go along the Antrim coast arriving in Belfast in the late afternoon.
