The Mini Bus

The minibus will have seats for 10 people which includes the driver so we have 9 riders. The other seats will be removed to make space for the bikes in the rear of the minibus.

The mini bus will be a few years old as the new ones do not have removable seats, however it is fully serviced and recovery is included within the price.

More Details

I would suggest booking out a long weekend, Friday to Monday. It would be nice to get up to the accommodation early on Friday, maybe even take a very leisurely ride to Kielder maybe.

After the Trans Cambrian Way this year, some had got work on the Monday but wished they had not, so maybe take this into consideration.
