Theres a decent enough shop at Embrun. Got all the top names. Might work out cheaper as well with the euro.

Robin Hood Watersports is quite close to the M1 M62 junctions if you're coming down the East side.

There is also a shop in St Clement but I found their selection a little sparse when I needed some new river shoes.

ROUTE TO BRIANCON

Post by paddler1010 »

AS EXPLAINED TRAVELING TO BRIANCON FROM CENTRAL SCOTLAND TO DOVER FOR FERRY CROSSING. START OFF WITH M74 WOULD BE ABLE TO CALL AT CARLISLE CANOES ON ROUTE.ON DOWN M6 SOUTHM BUT NOT SURE OF ROUTE THEREAFTER. ANY IDEAS WOULD BE GOOD?

I would recommend UK canoes for the handiness of the location, but it seems pointless since your post will be deleted later for failing to follow the only rule on the site, even after someone tried to draw your attention to it. It's not rocket science, if you read this before it goes you can click on edit and change the case of all the letters that don't start sentences.

please use CAPITALS
Although it may not be in the spirit of the rules he certainly is following them to the letter ;-)

I'd have to say RobinHood Watersports 10 minutes off the M1, there selection is top notch, and very friendly to boot. Obviously depends on what route you would take but if I were you then Id be coming down the M1 or A1 anyway.

Sorry for poor diction,spelling and use of capital letters but this was a quick note requesting information from fellow paddlers. To infringe any rules or cause any offence was not my intention. Thanks to all who answered my question for the advice relating to best location of suppliers on route to Briancon... I will now be off to try and learn the correct use of the computer key board...............Any spelling or incorrect use of language please do not hesitate to correct.

What's the longest word that can be spelled using only the top row of a standard QWERTY keyboard?

We were advised that embrun shop was closed due to the birth of the owners baby. This info came from locals, after asking when the shop would open.

The Holiday shop at St Clement seemed to have all the essentials. If they dont do quality footwear there is intersport in Embrum, through the Town down the hill passed Wonderland/reeves wave over bridge and right at RAB. Or Decathlon have specials on for Salomon Raid shoes (Not too dissimilar to Teva Sun Kosi, but with knobbly tread). Calais & St Omer have shops just after the ferry or I think Gap is the closest Decathlon to Briancon (Plus there was water in the Drac so head south after Grenoble and goto Gap and Embrum and St. Clement to Arrive in Briancon a little late but having paddled and shopped!
