campsites

  1. Travel
    This seems to be a nice tool to find campsites for free. At least in North America there are plenty of them listed. For the rest of the world it´s terra incognita more or less. https://freecampsites.net Check out this one, too: http://ioverlander.com/ You have to flag "informal campsites"...

    Morning ladies & gents, In late August I'm going on a +5000km solo trip around Europe. My first trip ever...46 days off work...don't think I'll come back! :-) I've a list of questions as long as my arm but I'm trying not to be a total noob and actually search the forum for the answers...
  3. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Thought I would write up my little 8 day jaunt around Europe. (apologies for the upside down pictures, I have no idea how to correct them!) The start of the plan was to incorporate a few battlefields with a visit to the Izi meeting (Izi meeting) which I have been meaning to go to for a few...
  4. Meet Ups / Rideouts
    Tour buddy(ies) wanted - NOW SORTED THANKS I have received enough replies so I don't need anyone else now thanks. Thought I'd add this rather than delete the post I have a trip this year in May from Wednesday 11th through the 18th. Due to my friends having other commitments I am on my own...

    Hi , myself and some mates are planning a ride up into Scotland late spring/early summer.Can anyone recommend good bike friendly campsites preferably with a pub close by. We are thinking of riding up to somewhere between Jedburgh /Edinburgh camping the night then riding towards the west coast...
  6. Chatter
    Me and my son Rob (RAW85) are off to the west country for a little jaunt next week on the Africa Twins. It will be our first trip together so really looking forward to it. Can anyone recommend any campsites, firstly one near Plymouth and secondly one near St.Ives in Cornwall. We are staying...

    The motorways are a horrendous mess, in the process of being built, avoid; diversions everywhere. Satnav was baffled as well, the trip out was not much fun. BUT there is an alternative, going out of town get the N611 followed by the N634. Straight out of the city in a few km onto lovely bendy...
  8. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Part one... Cochem Sunday 16th June The phrase “one luggage strap will be sufficient” was still ringing in my ears as barely 10 miles from home the crash of the BBQ hitting the road and the sight of it in the mirror skating along 60mph meant we had officially started the Germany 2013 invasion...

    Cheers everyone, having travelled through Eastern Europe last year, we have on rather short notice kicked the idea to ride to Turkey because it will be too hot for the kids riding pillion (we had 40 degrees in Romania last year already). So it´s Britannia this year, three weeks from around 15...

  11. Travel
    Hi all, have been given a 1 maybe 2 week leave pass over August to take my bike off on a solo adventure, have not taken the bike abroad yet so have spent a good amount of time looking and have a few ideas (Andorra, Pyrenees, possibly Croatia etc) but there is so much choice! so would much...
  12. Charity Events
    Hi Peeps We discussed this in previous threads and also at the Welsh Invasion Best proposed date for this will be in May (11th is the only date I can make it too) as looking at one of the websites the trains will not be starting till then and the visitor centre and cafe will open too. I will...

    Looking for a bit of advice on what to see and where to go in the alps. The idea would be coming down France(route Napoleon) into Italy, Austria and then somewhere into southern Germany. So anyone know of any decent campsites, cheap b&b, cool roads and even cooler passes. Obviously we will do...
  14. National Meets
    After the success of the National in Norfolk, let's sort out next year's venue. We don't want another long, drawn-out argument over where in the country it should be. We have been all over now so let's settle for somewhere central UK. As we have already been to Dent and Rosedale we initially...
  15. Travel
    Hi We are to guys on a AT & TA and we have planned a route down through Austria (the old smuggling route) and up again to the Czech Republic and Prague. We have planned to enter Poland from Prague but we have heard some rumors that it is dangerous to stay in Poland because they will steal the...
  16. National Meets
    We're booked into Broad Farm camping and Caravan site with James' (Jaqueslemac's) band due to play on the Saturday night. There is a bar/ club that serves meals on site, which is open until midnight. We will have a field all to ourselves and can, if we feel the need, put up a marquee there...

  18. Vader's Tours
    Change of plan What with that silly sausage eating Kraut mucking up his passport application and not being able to make this year's Northern Germany trip we had a bit of a rethink about where we would go. Yes we all still wanted to go to Plon but it was felt that that would best be left for...
  19. Past National Meets
    Right. This is NOT an attempt to divert this years National but it would be useful to have a list of known campsites that we could use in future years. This is not a general discussion thread and any such posts will be moved. What I'm hoping to see here are a list of campsites that you have...

    I'm heading down to Kappl in western Austria for a few days in the summer and, while there's plenty to keep me occupied when I'm there, does anyone have any recommended routes, campsites or 'must sees' for the three days set aside for the journey south? I'll have to hit the Autobahns on the way...
