St George & The Dragon RIde

Posted On 10th June 2022

A full on long weekend away in Mons attending the Doudou festival and riding with our twinned chapter. Friday we visited Tournia for lunch then were escorted to our hotel by the Mons chapter. The evening was given over to the festivities in the town where there were bands playing in the streets and a great atmosphere from teh mass of humanity crowed into the town. Saturday a ride out visiting some of the canal boat lifts followed by lunch at a canal side restaurant then more in town revelry. Today was teh main event of the festival which is hard to describe apart from complete madness reigned followed by a quitter night in town (but not much quieter). Monday Mike led us home with a visit to La Couple V2 site near St Omer.
