Our guided routes are designed to take us through some of the most beautiful areas on the islands, we expect to ride for between 4-6 hours a day and spend time taking in some of the sights on the way. We have also designed the routes to take us, happily, by way of some of the best restaurants Mallorca and Menorca can offer!
Great photos in black and white of a trip from UK to Europe in 1953.
The author writes:
"I have now been informed that so many modern foreign bikes ridden by smartly dressed English riders would have been quite a sight on Europe's roads. They would ride through France, Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland. We think of old bikes as being unreliable, but my father and his friends were keen riders and engineers and completed the trip without much more than a puncture. The bikes that took part in the trip were:
GAU 856 Brough Superior SS100 with fuel in the loop sidecar.
AHC 650 Triumph Thunderbird. He bought this one on 22nd July 1950 for £219 16 9 and by the day they set off in July 53 - it had done 24,900 miles.
KBY 571 Sunbeam and VMM 871 Sunbeam."

To be fair I'm being harsh, Dave is mostly piss taking and Marc is just being careful. A small blot on what has already been a mental trip, and its only just started.
www.RTWbyBIKE.com is a storyline for a story to start soon. After several small trips we quit everything and choose a living on the bike for some time, some km and a lot of new friends to come ... Join the ride!
