Trip from UK to Spain May 2011

Hi, I am riding from Manchester to Dover, then ferry to Calais and then riding through France to Clermont Ferrand, then onto Playa d aro in Spain, we are allowing three days to ride down, three days in Spain and three days riding back, myself and my son are heading out on the 11th May 2011, if anyone has any info, tips or would like to meet up along the way for a cheeky pint or join in for part of the trip just give us a shout, we are riding a bmw f650 gs and a 600 bandit.

The Millau viaduct I reckon. The tallest road bridge in the world. It's on the motorway from Paris to Barcelona. You'll cross it and it looks nothing exceptional. Go off the motorway and look at it from underneath. It's impressive, to say the least.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
