Belgium & Luxembourg 19th-21st March

The next EuropP1010546ean trip has been set for the 19th to 21st of March.  This will take in the fabulous Ardennes Forest region of Belgium and also a trip to Luxembourg.

The cost of the trip, which will include Ferry crossing on the prestigious Sea France Fleet,  Hotel accomadation, and an experienced tour guide leader, will be approximately £300 per person (for a solo bike & rider – a small fee will be payable for a pillion).  Our chosen Hotel, which is pictured here, offers secure under cover bike parking.

Once the accomadation fees have been finalised I will confirm the total cost.  Each trip is limited to just 10 bikes and they sell out fast!

If you wish to reserve a place please visit our web site where you can make the deposit payment.

As with previous tours, this will be a guide lead trip, using a navigation riding system where each rider can ride at their own pace within the group.  It is ideal for anyone who hasn’t ventured across the channel before.

As the result of a previous request, this will not be a ‘War Graves’ trip, (There’ll be more of those later in the year).

So come on…….you know you want to!

  1. Book me in im up for it, i will let Lionel know he will confirm on the 18th of March 😉

  2. Hi Andy

    What time Friday would you be leaving Cardiff?

    For those in doubt, the Ardennes region has lovely riding.

  3. Hi Simon, The trip starts with an 8am ferry from Dover on the Friday morning, But what we have done on previous trips is travelled down to Dover on Thursday afternoon, stayed in a travel inn and had breakfast on the boat. The costs of the travel inn are not included in the cost of the trip and that is left to individuals- but we did share rooms and split the cost. It did give us all a good opportunity to get to know eachother before the riding started the other side.

  4. Hi Andy

    Can you book me a place please? I should be good for getting to a hotel near Dover around 9pm on the Thursday 18th.



  5. DONT’T GO! I’ve been twice before and its a terrible trip!. All you do is eat, ride some fantastic roads, eat, ride with great company, eat, see some wonderful scenery, eat and genrally have a fab time.

    Hmm, go on then, put me down as a proboble but don’t tell the wife.

    Does Tommy know we’re coming?

  6. Hello Andy,

    I’d love to come to Belgium so book me up.


  7. HI Andy
    The trip sounds great. Unfortunately I probably won’t have my bike around that time as I’m having stuff done to it and then it’s off to be painted.

    I’ll keep a looksy out for the next trip tho.

    Thanks for letting me know about it
