Help Please... I'm trying to plan a 5 day trip this summer arriving via the euro tunnel in to Calais.
We are looking to ride day 1 from Calais to Cologne but I have no road knowledge for Germany.
I'm then looking to take the group on day 2 from Cologne to Baden-Baden.
The plan is to spend all of day 3 in Baden-Baden.
The return route will be either through France or back the way we've come.
I would really appreciate any route suggestions and just as importantly the time it will take to make those leaps from location to location.
We are all experienced riders.
Thanks very much. D.
There are not that many good roads between Calais and Cologne, or Cologne down towards Stuttgart. When we head for the Black Forest we tend to do the French Autoroutes and get there in one day. It's a boring slog but gets us to the great roads a day sooner. 6 to 7 hours on a motorway is no worse than 6 to 7 hours on flat, straight, poorly surfaced, congested roads and you'd have to do the latter for 2 days instead of one.
