Just FYI.\n\nThe 2010 French Run will be from Friday 30 April to Sunday 2 May, so two\nnights, as ever. Monday 3 May is a Bank Holiday.\n\nIt's going to be the Champagne region again.\n\nOld hands will know what to expect. Newbies: this is the annual weekend\nof total ukrm misbehaviour and debauchery. A nice hotel in France,\nfour-course dinners both nights, and ferry crossing, for roughly £150 a\nhead.\n\nSo far, we have managed to drink three hotels dry of beer on the first\nnight (I think that's the tally, isn't it? - happy to be corrected). We\nhave left a trail of happy barkeepers and hoteliers, plus irritated\ngendarmes and at least one hospital A&E crew, in our wake.\n\nIf you've ever wondered who the faces are behind the postings, this is\nyour chance to find out. You may be disappointed....\n\nWe usually have a 'gate' of about 50 people on these runs. Hotel car\nparks are entirely given over to bikes, which is right and proper.\n\nFull details will go out before Christmas.
