European Bike Week, in our opinion, is one of the best in the biking calendar, it's a good one and not to be missed!
We travel down through France, across the German Eiffels and Rhine valley to Austria. We return via Austrian ski resorts, the Black Forrest and the High Vosges. A real adventure on minor roads to a fantastic rally.
Rest assured that this trip promises interesting scenery, beautiful stops and places of interest, pretty villages, sleepy hamlets and not forgetting the great biking roads!

Just to say how much I enjoyed the Faaker See Tour. It exceeded all expectations and I will always remember this one because it was - SO INTERESTING. Beautiful scenery and the riding through the undulating country side was...just wonderful - to say nothing of the Faaker See experience itself. Where did all those bikes come from!
