North London visit Europe
June 19th-25th our Branch finally completed a Continental Trip that had been organised for two years ago.
Using Global Motorcycle Tours to sort out the specifics we visited the Vosges area and the Black Forest of Germany.
Our first day was a lot of motorway miles to get us into the lovely Ardennes area where we stopped for the night at Bastogne.
Our next two nights were at an hotel by the lake at Geradmer and we had a superb ride out including the Routes de Cretes and Col de Schultz and Grand Ballon.
We had two nights in Germany staying at Freudenstad and did some great riding, though the famous part of the B500 is ruined by harsh speed restrictions.
Our last night was near Bernkastel where it was great riding along the Moselle.
It was a super trip enjoyed by five of us and we had generally good weather.
Roads completely shut by roadworks were a bit of a problem though.
A great holiday.
