Re hi viz if req or compulsory on French sid
Demonstrations we ride round or over them
How involved the police gonna follow it through
Filtering through traffic fine or not
Keep in touch
I can do that for you if anybody wants one.if its the case that we may run into problems and could get stopped more than normal would it be worth getting a letter written in French explaining that we are not part of the demonstration and we are taking part in a charity ride from Blackpool to Paris bla Bela Bela just an idea
No problemo's Kev, I'd rather be taking part in the event really, but can't so want to help any way I can.Hi Moon
thank you for doing all the hard work
very much appreciated
That's what I popped in for, I spoke to the bike club wednesday evening & they are all of the opinion that the demo will be long over before you get there. It will probably start about 14:00 & peter out about 18:00 ish. Even if it drags on a bit it should be long gone by the time the first TLD riders arrive at the eye-full...Will we not miss most of any demo, not likely to be arriving until 9 ish at the earliest.
When was the last time you were here Jase? The model1 auto radars effectively flashed from the front, no worries on a bike, Model 2 onwards all take you from behind & we're now on model 5 or 6...I do like riding in france speed camera's are great as they catch you coming towards them :thumbup::thumbup:but there mobile unit usually patrol motorways in orange transit van type vans
Yup! all very civilised yer average frog demonstrator...Most frenchmen go home too dinner at 6 o,clock strike or no strike , at least the truck drivers do anyway
Thanks for the update Chris, we wont be arriving till well after this, so hopefully they will be in a bar somewhere enjoying a Stella and wont even notice our arrivaljust recieved this from the Parisien FFMC organiser, via my local organiser
"Et, ben, on peut dire que ça tombe très mal…
La Tour Eiffel, fait partie du parcours et c’est même un des endroits principaux ou nous allons nous arrêter et faire une action.
Considère que samedi 18 juin d’environs 16 h 30 à 19 h, Sur le pont entre la tour et le Trocadéro, il y auras plusieurs milliers de motards plus les automobilistes qui nous rejoindrons.
Désolé pour tes amis, mais sauf si ils font ça le matin, le lieu est à éviter…"
"well you could say it could have fallen better...
The Eiffel Tower is an integral & even principal part of the route for the demonstration where we will stop & make an event.
Consider that, saturday 18June, around 16h30 to 19h00, on the bridge between the tower & the Trocadéro, there will be a few thousand bikes plus all the cars that will join us.
Sorry for your friends, but unless they do it in the morning, the place should be avoided..."
You have been warned. Please note the good news... 16H30 to 19H00 even if they're running late (they will be theyre french) they should be long gone by the time the first TLD riders get there.
