It does look interesting! I hadn't remembered the Col du Galibier being that far South TBH, so I'll have a look on paper to reacquaint myself with it.
IIRC there is a picturesque town just over the Belgian border near Charleville-Mézières, with a highly recommended (by me!) restaurant.

Anyone else want to vote? I would like to settle on dates - even if the route might go through some more adjustments (having looked at the position of some campsites).

Having gathered all preferences the majority are in favour of 9th-16th May, making this ostensibly an 8 day event. However the optional aspect to the first leg means it could be anything upwards of a 7 day event - especially if a team decided they wanted to either shoot down to Gap in one hit, or spend a week getting there!
