We meet in Folkstone at the Eurotunnel for the start of the Great Escape Adventure.
After a short 35 minute crossing we begin our journey along the motorway through France, Belgium, the Netherlands and into Germany to our first hotel.
After a welcoming briefing our guests can choose either to dine in the hotel for the evening or to join the tour guides in taking a short trip across the river for a stroll to a local village eatery, which offers traditional German cuisine, pizza and the tour guide’s old favorite, gyros.
Situated conveniently on the banks of the Rhine, our hotel overlooks a quick and efficient car ferry service (4 Euros per person) for those wishing to explore or dine in the neighbouring village.

Look guys - I am a 71 year old vicar riding a CB500X and so you you do not need a big powerful bike to enjoy this somewhat challenging adventure. What you do need is a willingness to enjoy tackling a very wide variety of roads and sometimes forest trails. Some days the distances to be covered seemed quite daunting but the scenery and the sheer enjoyment of each days rides was such that the miles passed quite quickly. It was the type of ride where you think ONLY 100 miles to go to the hotel for the night. The routes were superb and we rode some of the best motorcycling roads in each country. Darren was an excellent group leader judging the pace so that the group stayed together. My favourite country visited was Slovenia - the scenery and the roads were stunning, but the other 13 were pretty enjoyable too.
