After attending Vimy100 in April 2017 I have been looking at going again 2018.
I fully expect that it will be a more relaxed affair than the Centenary this year where there were around 20000 people attending the event.
When we went in 2014 we were able to park in the parking lot right by the visitor centre. Unlike this year where there were park and rides setup with buses to the site.
I'll probably be Jean Sans-Amis again but hopefully less of a cock-up like 2014 when I managed to get lost after deciding to leave the satnav at home!
Although I did all the planning for the 2015 trip I was unable to go after my heart attack less than week before.
So fingers crossed for good weather etc.

Had a run into Folkestone today as I had a dentist appointment and thought the bike would be better.
Nice and sunny. Parked almost outside and was early. Went for a coffee at the cafe over the road. They couldn't make change for a tenner and trusted me to go back. Biker friendly.
After the scraping around I had a walk to Debenham's for another drink and make change.
Back at the bike I couldn't believe it. Bird shit on the screen and tank. Spattered on the chrome work too.
I stopped at the café and paid my £1.30 and rode home to clean the bike.
A short ride that would have been longer without those bloody birds.
