Well, after a lot of looking around I finally have a route sorted (sort of) with approximate mileages listed

DAY 1, Duisberg overnight 250 miles
Day 2, 3 dams, stop nearby 180 miles
Day 3 & 4, Buchenwald & Colditz, stay 2 nights in/near Colditz 210 miles
Day 5, Hofheim for the Waldgeist (big food) 230 miles
Day 6 & 7, Nurburg area (same hotel I reckon as it was dead cheap, or the wee one we stopped at) 125 miles
Day 8, Ieper 250 miles
Day 9, Home.

Dates TBA, but we're looking at June to get better weather (Although 16/17th May would be rather apt to visit the dams:lol:) Trying to stay off motorways if possible, but it's not avoidable.

To make it less stressful I suggest a whole week away from Saturday to Sunday, with the normal stop in Ieper on the return leg to get an early start. Perhaps even going to Folkstone on the Friday night so as to get an early start or even doing the crossing on the Friday night & stay in Calais.

Limiting the trip 10 Bikes as it's a logistical nightmare finding rooms, although I may be batter organising sooner rather than later.

So far the list seems to be
Me & Mrs F
MaxVeg
Sir Titty
Triple595/Earl(or whatever he is now called)
Rob NMTB & the lovely Joni
StumpyDave
Dave SP3

There is no Mrs F - so thats freed one place up 07

Is Sir Titty so-named due to his physical attributes or his attitude 03

In all seriousness, hats off to you Andy - great service and top marks mate 49

Are you coming then, Gramps?
I mean, you were there when we attacked the dams...........................:lol::tongueout:

Last 2 may trips have been a tad moist, we shall see what the general consensus is.

Sounds great to me.

For me, the sooner the dates are agreed the better, so that I don't double book anything01

fwiw : each previous trip, I've overnighted close to Folkstone/Dover, so that there's little or no mileage this side of the channel on day 1. Gives a fresh start on t'other side.01

It's a definate "stay in Folkestone/leave early" that's for sure.
The only weeks I can't do are the 26th May to 9th June as I have a gig on the 2nd.

As far as next year is concerned I can "do" any dates. Bank holiday would be a good idea but it would be nice to go a little later so as to be less "moist" :lol:
The Maidstone TravelLodge was spot on for the money :thumbup:

Ashford's even better, bit closer, and there's a nice pub attached to it02
The prices seem to vary, year by year.

As yet, got no dates booked for next year, so anything's fine by me4902

I shall start the planning then. Most hotels won't let you book a 12 month in advance, so I will wait a week or so.

Sounds great.
I don't think the time of year wil make much difference to the weather. Last time I was on a FretTour it rained. The time before, it rained. I've just got back from Barcelona and cut my trip short by a day because of the rain.
If I'm going, there's a fair chance it will rain!

You'd probably be safe at the moment. With the amount of training I've done since I snapped my leg I'd struggle to fight my way out of a wet paper bag.:sad:

Shall we try a different hotel for the Nurburgring? OK, that one was comfortable and cheap, but was rather lacking in nightlife:lol:

I've sent an email to the lovely Dutch lady that fancied the pants off me in the Tunnel Guesthouse.

Ooops, date change as that week is beig booked by our erstwhile resident duo of fatties.


Probably 2 weeks late, W/C 25th June, going 23rd, or last week of May, W/C 28th, going the 26th.

I'll confirm tonight when I get in, just in case I have pre-booked any gigs.

Well, the dates will have to be either the last week of May or last week of June as above. I have no gigs and nobody is on leave from work either.

I'm not fussed which week it is, but I guess we should take a vote.
