Meeting Your Trip in LAROCHE 2014
On this page, you will find information about meeting your trip. Topics include...
We suggest that you print this page out, and bring a copy with you to your trip.
When and Where:
Exceptionally, our June 15 trip will meet at Paris’ Gare de Bercy, on the platform for the 10:33a train to Laroche-Migennes (final destination: Auxerre), by 10:15a.
Other meeting times are available by prior arrangement only. If your flight times are not compatible with catching a 10:30a train from Paris, be sure to contact us well in advance of your trip departure.
Nicolas, your Trip Coordinator will travel to Burgundy with you.
If you are coming from the Hôtel Bellevue et Chariot d’Or, as most of you are, we have arranged taxi transport, departing from the front of the hotel at 9:45a. Please understand that we cannot delay for straggelers: if you miss the taxis, hail one, or get the front desk to call you one, and take it to Gare de Bercy, to catch up there.
If you are coming from the Hôtel des Ducs d’Anjou, line 14 of the métro will whisk you to the Bercy station (2 stops), from whence a one-block walk brings you to the main line rail terminus (follow signs).
An important note concerning luggage:
if you are renting paniers from us, you will collect them in Laroche. You do not, however, need to pack into them. Tonight is a luggage stop, and so your piece of transfer luggage will be there, waiting for you. Remove from it only what you wish to have on the bike with you today, before placing your case on the van.
Conversely, do collect your paniers, so that you have them with you to pack into when you leave Cravant.
You will depart Laroche by bicycle....
You thus have the issue of changing into your cycle clothes. You may as well face this before you meet the bikes... it will let you get started all the sooner. Hint: the bathroom on the train is cleaner than the one in the Laroche station :-(
Included in Your Access Package:
A train ticket from Paris to Laroche, where we start our ride. Nicolas will have it with him, aboard the train.
