Germany - August/September - Anyone?

I'm heading over to Germany at the end of August for 10 days.

Only fixed places/dates are due to having booked the ferry early to get a decent deal.

Will be arriving in IJmuiden (Netherlands) on 25 August 2015, probably following the route below - anticlockwise - with the option of the extra loop to take in the Stelvio, and returning to the ferry at IJmuiden on 3 September.





I've no accommodation/campsites booked so the route is flexible and weather dependent.

If anyone is in the area and wants to hook up for a day or two's riding or a few beers in the evening give me a shout!

Craig

I am going to be down there for a similar trip but about a week earlier. If my plan changes and I slip inline with your itinerary, I'll hollar. It looks like your're passing close to my place on the way down and stopping for the night near Aachen? I'm pretty close to there up in Gangelt, DE area. Let me know if you need anything. I have tent space and a fridge full of beer.

Hi, thanks for the kind offer of tent space etc but I'm planning to get as far as Speyer for the first night. Hoping to visit the museum the next morning.

If your plans change it would be great to meet up.

You dont seem too far from the Nürburgring, see if you are able to stop by at a raceday, perhaps even have a go and enjoy yourself.

Had considered visiting it. Would be too worried about being wiped out by other drivers/riders! Might go in the future to watch some racing though.
