European Meet Black Forest May 2017

Post by guest2360 »

Within UK it's easy for us to meet up for a day and even all book in to a local hotel for an overnight knees up.  Not so easy to arrange one in Europe though.
I run tours for Pidcock Travel which has been organising trips all over Europe for the last 33 years.
In May we have a hotel booked in the small Bavarian town of Bad Herrenalb which is 412 miles from Calais.  We arrange half board accommodation, and return  Eurotunnel bookings, provide you with gpx routes and route sheets  as well as a list of places of interest when you arrive.  The area is superb for daily rides out with the famous B500 starting just 10miles away at Baden Baden.
We all eat together every evening and some even make  it to breakfast every morning.
While we are there you do what you want but we do initially put people in groups of about  4 or 5 .  There can be up to 50 of us on about 30 bikes.
You can opt out of the Eurotunnel booking if you want to arrange your own crossing but the 5 night stay at the Best Western Hotel in Bad Herrenalb I can't change except for possibly extending a stay. 
You can always pm me for more detailed information. Full details can be found in the link below kindly provided by David

Normally a good mix or RTs and GSs with about two thirds two up. 
Had a couple of S1000RRs in the past but they didn't do it twice. We normally make progress across Europe but only because it's a long way. An Iconic would fit in nicely.

Well now you mention it we have a 1000R with us.  It had a cruise control fitted after it went to Scotland last year.

Would say most are in their 40s and 50s  with a couple of old gits (me for one).  And yes bring the Iconic and add some sparkle. Not everyone in the photo are ours, just the ones at the back and at the bar.

From local knowledge Piddies tours are some of the best there are. Superb locations, hotels, arrangements, planning, briefing, value.  Hats off to RT man for being central to this.
