ride to south of france from ace cafe summer 2012
 
hi
ace cafe ride to south of france summer 2012 for 10 days
then back up coast into italy / switzerland / amsterdam/
anyone interested to do all or to meet up to do part of trip. i ve done st maxime up into italy then switzerland and then back to calais but in 2 days 1317 miles that was hardcore. so 10 days to see more of all the places in france italy and switerland and a nice chill out in the dam for 1 night before back to ferry
I ve got some great places to stop on the way but not alot so anyone who has some others great places to go or stop for night please let me know

ps it will be mostly camping. i know of some in the st tropez upto monaco area i ve not stop in any but saw loads when i was working down there.biker friendly place would be best. happy rideing :devil2::bierbeer::funmeteryes: route update i was thinking ace cafe to portsmouth ferry santander across to barcelona then up ?

give me a call when you are closer to going ( say 3 months warning)

Also could you give me an idea of your riding style and what bike you will be using.

regards

Let me get this Autumn one out the way. And I could be interested. Date's are a good think even if it is a round about date's in what month. Spring and Autumn are good time's. As it is out of season and still warm to hot. And a mid week crossing is half price to a week end.

I have been down to the pyrenees a few times, also to Nice. have to say Nice/antbidess into N Italy far too crowded for my liking.

Currently riding an Enfield, but that might change.

Guys,

If you go, and you want to come to Antwerp(en) in Belgium, drop me a mail... We live here and have room in our garage for some more bikes for a night, you can stay at our place and the cost is zero!
We can, if you are interested, take you for a small walking tour in the old city and grab something to eat in the evening, we're flexible and are travelers ourselves...

If you're interested: seb@fotografix.be
