Overview & Rough Itinerary
This is the tour that really has it all; amazing roads, beautiful sights, and incredible twisty alpine roads.
We set off from Folkestone early morning, catching the Euro Tunnel to Calais where we then make our way across Northern France and into Luxmbourg where we will spend our first night.
Following a hearty breakfast, day 2 sees us head westward towards the famous Romantic Road where we will be based for the next three nights, allowing a few days to explore some of the beautiful historic towns that make up this fantastic 350km route. During our time here, you can join us on our organised rideouts along the route, or break away from the group for a few hours to explore by yourself.
On day 5 we make our way into Austria where we will spend two nights in the Tyrol region, perfectly placed for some Alpine fun. Our daily rideouts here include the Stelvio Pass, the Silvretta Pass, and the Timmelsjoch Pass.
We then head northwards back into Germany on day 7 where we take lunch at the beautiful Lake Konstanz with the Alps providing the most magnificent backdrop. We also visit Rhine Falls, the largest plain waterfall in Europe.
No trip to Germany would be complete without riding the famous B500 and that is exactly what we do on day 8 as we continue north before crossing over into France where we can watch the sun go down over a relaxed evening meal with wine from the region.
We continue through the Champange & Ardennes region of France on day 9, spending our final night before making our way back to the Euro Tunnel for an early afternoon crossing back to the UK.
This fantastic 350km route passes through no less than 30 historic towns that look as though they are straight out of a fairy tale.
The Austrian Alps
What's better than a day in the Alps? Two days in the Alps! Thats right, we will spend two days exploring this bikers paradise, riding the kind of twisties you've been dreaming about for ages. You'll be left grinning from ear to ear!
The Black Forest
If there is ever a road that you have to ride on your motorbike, its Germany's famous B500! Almost certainly designed by a biker, this amazing stretch of road is littered with incredible bends and hairpins that will leave you grinning from ear to ear!

The Important Stuff
Breakdowns are a sad fact of motorcycle touring and often we can get bikes back up and running between us, but due to the level of mileage and nature of this tour, it is a requirement that you hold European Breakdown Cover so that you can be prompty recovered where required. This is for your benefit, as much as it is for everyone elses.
Travel Insurance inc. Motorcycling
Again, due to the nature of this tour, it is a requirement that you hold suitable travel insurance which covers you for motorcycle riding on the appropriate sized bike.
Stating the obvious here, but riding 1,700 miles over 10 days is hard work and something you may need to prepare for. We will provide tips in our pre-tour pack!
