Probably many of you enjoy touring with a partner, or maybe it's hard to justify a holiday with riding buddies rather than your partner. Certainly for me it makes sense to spend holiday time with my wife but honestly she's become a reluctant pillion rider for anything more than a day trip. I think the packing and unpacking on a daily basis regardless of weather holds little appeal and I can't say I blame her, yet I want some riding days whilst on holiday. So we're trying a different approach this summer, the overnight ferry from Portsmouth to St Malo is booked for a week in late May and we have booked an apartment on the Finistere coast of Brittany for a whole week. So that's one unpack and repack and days out exploring Brittany whenever the weather is good. My wife's a painter so if she wants to spend a day with brushes and canvas I can always head-off alone. Now we have planned this way it's seems so bloody obvious, but in case anyone else faces the same challenge and hasn't considered this option I though it worth sharing. Whatever you plan, I hope you get some great rides with friends or partners this summer.
