And so, the time has come. I leave in an hour, just need to put the surprisingly small amount of luggage on the bike, test the new sat nav arrangement and hit the road (figuratively).

I'm doing England, France, Belgium and Netherlands today and Germany tomorrow. The weather looks perfect and the bike is running like a dream.

I'll try to fly the flag for us, would have been good to have more of us there but we'll do what we can between the 2 of us! No idea about wifi (vee-fee!) access so might be in touch or might not. There's no way I'll be up to Ross's photographic proliferance but I'll see what cap comms I can get!

Bis später!

Have a great one guys. Hope the weather stays good and the roads and beer are flowing.

Take care, enjoy and say hi from me please.

Cheers

P.s. You'd better get at least a couple of caption competition photos.

I'm now at my overnight hotel in Venlo. If you're ever passing and want a good, cheap room, this place is great! Best of all, my room has free wifi and a bath; that's my evening sorted!

The weather here is even better, properly warm but a nice cooling breeze. The France, Belgium, Holland slog was, as always, DULL, but at least it's quick. Some traffic around Antwerp (as always, be ready John) and just 1 fuel stop.

Tomorrow I hope to get up early and try to see some places I used to go as a kid, 30 years ago! Then I'll meet Bigfoot and some others and hopefully get to use some fun roads on the way to Kelbra.

Right, there's a beer and sausage with my name on it, see you later.

All the best,
Heineken Frikandel

Shoulda said, hotel is Campanile Venlo. I booked online ages ago and got a good rate for B&B.

Currently have a very welcome cold beer, awaiting the food. Bath was heaven.

Have a great time and enjoy The Harz.

Gutted I couldn't make this one, but as things pan out I would have been an 11th hour drop out as it happens.

Say hello to them all for me in Kelbra.

Real quick update. Am currently back in hotel in Venlo. Friday's ride was fantastic, weather is amazing, then this morning a few laps of the local 'Cat and Fiddle' type road before breakfast.

Sadly, one of the group had a bad accident this morning; he's badly injured but stable and no reported head injuries. This happened before the planned tour, which was duly cancelled. I decided to start heading home, hence am now half way there. Espaceman decided to stay and come home tomorrow as planned.

It was a sad and difficult end for me; we all heard the accident happen, around half a mile from the campsite. This put a cloud over the group and I personally had a strong urge to be with my family, hence my decision to get on the road. Of course my wishes lie with the rider, who's name I sadly don't know, for a speedy and full recovery.

I'll post more when I get home, just thought I'd update you all now I have Internet access again.
