After short introductions and a quick briefing we will make our way to the train.
Once in France we hop straight onto the motorway to make a quick transit through Northern France towards Cambrai, our first coffee stop of the day. After coffee we continue as we mean to go on and head into the twisty roads of the Ardennes region. Here we duck in and out across the French and Belgium borders. Following the winding banks of the Meyse and Semois rivers to our hotel across the border in Luxembourg, our base for the next three nights.
Day 2 –
Ride out (175 miles)
Starting the day with a buffet style breakfast we take a relaxed ride through the open countryside towards Rochefort, which is our first coffee stop of the day. Lunch is taken in the picturesque town of Dinant squeezed between the river Meyse and the high rocks that overlook the imposing Citadel below.
Twisty roads through beautiful wooded areas and rolling countryside lead us to La Roche-en-Ardennes. Laying on a sharp bend in the river Ourthe, a small town and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Ardennes. On leaving this town it’s time to return to our hotel and sample the local beer after a great days ride.
Day 3 –
Ride out (185 miles)
Today we look forward to twisty smooth surfaced roads, pure biking heaven. We head out into the Oesling region of Luxembourg and then into the Eifel mountains that hug the border in Germany. These roads have every type of bend imaginable, very little traffic, considerate and courteous drivers so they offer plenty of challenges and are the perfect place for you to hone your riding skills further.
We will be stopping at the famous race circuit in Spa on our way to lunch today at the famous biker ranch, a typical German biker café that is always busy with bikers, it even has a motorcycle shop in the same complex.
Day 4 –
Ardennes to Calais (265 miles)
Sadly, time to head back already. We make our way to Calais stopping at Bouillon, the town sits in a sharp bend of the river Semois and is home to Bouillon castle which is perched on three rocky outcrops and is characterised by a labyrinth of corridors and huge vaulted halls. Definitely not to be missed. The ‘Giant’s Tomb’ view point gives a stunning panorama of the curiously shaped hill surrounding the river.
More twisty roads through France and Belgium fill our day before picking up the motorway for the quick ride to the Euro Tunnel.
