Anyone fancy joining me and a few others for this trip? Dates to be confirmed but likely to be 18 July - 2 August. Overnight return ferry from Hull to Zeebrugge or Eurotunnel to Calais. One week wending our way down through France and Germany's beautiful Black Forest, playing in the Alps for a bit with a selection of Alpine passes: Splugen, St Bernadino, Furka and Susten ... then heading down the Route des Grandes Alpes to the French Riviera for a rest day in Grasse to explore Provence or hit the beach. Second week head up the Route Napoleon, a day doing the stunning Verdon Gorge, then heading back generally the same way but a different route taking in a couple more Alpine passes, up through the Black Forest and France. 2500-ish blissful miles. Apart from one long-ish day (first in Europe, 300m+), an easy 150 - 200 miles per day which is around 4-6 hours a day riding (more if you want it of course) and one rest day at the French Riviera coast. 2 weeks - leave Saturday lunchtime, get home Sunday lunchtime Assumed £40 - 80 per night hotel and £30 - 50 per day food and beer. Costs for ferry Hull-Zeebrugge is £430ish return including breakfast and outside cabin with a window. You can get cheaper but have to telephone for all tickets as website can't cope with shared cabins and everyone having their own bike. Eurotunnel is a lot cheaper if you live down South.
