Fuel Strike Update

27/5/16…Although the fuel strike in France is continuing and some stations have run dry or are running low, the majority have maintained supplies with little or no disruption.

In the Limousin and surrounding area there’s been little impact so far with the only restriction being on filling up jerricans. The main station in Treignac is still receiving fuel deliveries and they’re confident of maintaining supplies. Further north and west, a number of stations are limiting each vehicle to a maximum of 20 litres (not really an issue for most bikes). 2 of our guests left Wednesday heading north for Caen and stopped overnight in Alencon with both tanks filled up for their ride to the ferry. Another 2 left yesterday morning heading for Brittany and reported no major problems with only Total stations shut.

If you wish to keep abreast of the situation, here’s a couple of links to a French news website (in English and a little more factual than the British media) plus a French website listing the live situation re fuel availability by region:

In short, if things continue as they are now, you’re safe to come over and enjoy your biking holiday. We would however strongly advise you to take out holiday insurance to cover all eventualities.

So don’t let the actions of a few ruin your holiday, come and enjoy the fabulous roads in the Massif Central and a very warm welcome at RidersRest.
