Extra Places on Paris-Roubaix trip

4 Extra places are available on this April's exciting trip to do the Paris-Roubaix. 
We've got two groups - one doing the full 166km challenge route that takes in all the historic cobbled sections (just like the pros) and the other group doing the 141km sportive - which joins the pro route at the iconic Arenberg cobble section.
We plan to get to Roubaix on Friday in time to visit the velodrome - where we pick up our event packages and timing chip - and then head out to reconnoitre some of the cobble sections.
Saturday day is challenge day with an early start for the full 166km people. Lots more on the route and support over on the www.roubaixrides.cc website.  All the route finish in the velodrome - just like the pro race.
Sunday is the pro-race day.  Sky and Bradley Wiggins are targeting the Paris-Roubaix this year so we'll have considerable British interest.  The plan is to catch the race at an early but often decisive cobble section, and then bus our way to near the Roubaix finish for one of final cobble sections.  Its likely that we will take our bikes on the bus so that if we get struck in spectator traffic we can bike to the actual cobbles.
Additionally there will be optional group bike rides on Sunday morning and even Monday (if there's time) into the local area.
