What route do you have planned, coming from Calais and taking the obvious route to Kiel you have the choice of the A1 to Bremen then over to Kiel or the Hannover route.
The Hannover route would take you through Hamlin (Hameln) pied piper town and a fair few timber beam cities like Celle it would also put you on the northern fairytale route from the Brothers Grimm Deutsche Märchenstraße - Startseite Fairy Tale Road Homepage
We are doing a stop over in Holland,hoping to meet up with some of the XRV lot from there and then go the Bremen route.On our way back we will be going past Hannover but as its a long riding day i doubt we have time to stop
Well once we at our destination not a lot. Last year our daily beer consumption was higher then our fuel consumption.We tend to do a bit of sight seeing,stopping for food and drink a lot. I would say 100 miles a day or so. Just going to be a couple of long days there and back
As the others said not a lot. The organiser has been quoted as saying "it's a holiday on a bike not a biking holiday" I think there were a few days last year when the bikes never moved except to go to the shop for supplies.
It's not planned, you could always do your own thing as well.
Click the particular route you are interested in, on the right-hand-side a description appears and an icon labelled "Gps export". Click that an select "GPS file (.gpx)". Save or open it in Mapsource.
Because it's a track log you can't easily download it to your GPS. And even if you did manage to do it I believe you will told "Arriving at waypoint x on right" every few hundred metres. I recommend you load the tracklog into Mapsourde, and then create your own route using only a moderate number of waypoints.
I've had a go at doing that; attached
