First European Trip

Hi all,

I'm riding with some friends to Sachsenring, Germany from the UK for the MotoGP round there. Can anyone recommend some good roads on the way?

Cheers

Carl

You could travel more or less along the Rhine to Koblenz, cut across somehow north of Frankfurt and then keep between the A4 and A70 motorways. Stick to minor roads. This area is fairly mountainous with lots of winding roads. Called "Thueringer Wald", meaning Thueringer Forest.

I think gecko was trying to link BestBikingRoads.com Motorcycle Travel, Motorcycle Touring, Motorcycle Routes, Motorcycle Roads, Motorcycle GPS, GPS Motorcycle Rides, Motorbike Roads . We're just not ready for the best biling roads yet, still years away from that.

Thumbs up Mosel river!

You could pass the Nurburgring race track, then the Mosel river to the Rhine river, then RĂ¼desheim area and further on to the east, passing the Lahn river to the Wartburg castle to the east, more or less..... Sorry, right no time for more explaining....

Nice biker Hotel:

Real Meeting point, not on my route:

villa loewenherz , the have a website.

At the Mosel river:

Tourenfahrer Hotel in Klotten,Mosel

Have fun!

Thanks for all of your tips!

We were planning on going from Calais to Sachsenring in a day as Google maps thought the journey would take 7 or 8 hours. I've since realised that not only would we be very tired we would also miss all of the great roads on the way.

It is looking like we should maybe spend 2 days on the way out to really appreciate our little adventure.

We have no choice for the trip back, we have to get from the circuit to Calais, by 6pm, and that's after celebrating on the Sunday night!
