The Infamous Four!
Bike all packed up and ready to go up to Hull for the evening sailing to Zeebrugge. Bike all secure for crossing.
A couple of beers a half decent nights sleep and a four course breakfast, and we're ready to ride Europe.
We're soon through Belgum and into Germany, then we hear the roar of the Nurburg Ring!
Then it's south towards the Mosel valley, for our first night camping by the river at the lovely town of Cochem.
We're now on some great smooth twisty roads, following the river south, then up into the mountains.
Then it's into Luxumburg for cheap petrol, back into Germany, then France, camping in a small village near Colmar. It's late and already dark, the only bar serving food closes in twenty minutes, so we decide to eat before erecting tents! A large calzone, four or five beers and its interesting putting tents up without a torch between us!
Riding south east now on lovely roads, not too much traffic and smashing weather, we pass Lake Konstanz and into Switzerland, camping in the mountains just south of Chur near the Alpine village of Burgun.
It's a short hop over The Albulapasse and on to St Moritz(where the beautiful people live) We find a site, dump our gear and head for Italy and the Stelvio pass. It's good to be riding without all the luggage.
Loaded up again and enjoying the roads towards and over Grimselpass.
To be continued.
