Folkestone to Tinqueux, France
Miles: 192

We meet in Folkestone at the Eurotunnel for the start of the Great Escape Adventure. After a short 35 minute crossing we begin our journey along the French countryside to the town of Tinqueux to our first hotel.

After a welcoming briefing our guests can choose either to dine in the hotel for the evening with you tour guides or at one of the local restaurants

The hotel has secure parking for our bikes and is perfectly situated for the start of this Black Forest and Alps adventure.

On our second day of riding we will enjoy the views of the beautiful French countryside for the morning.

After stopping for lunch break we then ride north into Germany’s Black Forest along the famous B500 and onto tree lined roads over hill tops revealing amazing valley views and rolling hills that are full of grape vines. 

Our penultimate rest stop for the day is on a hillside popular with paragliders, as the hillsides and air streams provide good gliding conditions, so don’t be surprised if you see and hear one or two over your head.

Then a short ride to be welcomed by the hotel staff for another relaxing meal at the hotel.

Oberkirsch to Kaunertal
Miles: 238

We start the day with an amazing breakfast at the hotel before heading off on the amazing B500 through the Black Forest. This road has been described as one of the best riding roads in Europe.

It would be rude not to take a break at a cafe for some Black Frost Gateaux so rest assured your tour guide will do just that.

Your reward for the days riding will become all too clear to see once we arrive at our hotel where we will be staying for the next four nights. You will be greeted with a glass of snaps and a four course evening meal.​

Your tour guides will be leading a number of different ride outs from our hotel so you can chose to join them or if you prefer, you could chose to ride one of 9 different routes at your own pace. (Maps and guidance will be provided if you chose this option)

Our rides will include a ride up to the Kaunertal Glacia and of course it would be rude not to ride the world famous Stelvio Pass. 

The hotel offers coffee and cake in the afternoon in case you feel a little peckish after your days ride and a four course evening meal for dinner.
