    Welcome to the European Ride Report Index

    To be included, a report must be both interesting to read, and sufficient detailed to be useful for others. Ordered by country. When needed, I'll add a
    comment to clarify the title.

    If you see a nice report, please send me a PM and I'll check it out.

    Preference will, obviously, be given to Ride Report published here on ADVrider, but exceptions will probably be made.


    Your humble servant,

    [TaSK]

    PS: Do not add messages to this thread, but instead send me a PM with a link to your RR.

    Sorry to do this, but the ERRI had now fallen onto page 2. If it is to be useful at all, it need to be on the first page where it can be found by people stopping by.

    Or, if you like: poor man's sticky.

    Sort of like this...

    Or even more detail by including maps...

    As it is no longer sticky, this thread will fall into oblivion.
    Thus it will no longer be useful and updates serves no purpose.

    Too bad, because I had the ride of my life again, even after sixteen straight years of touring there. My friends who joined me thought so as well...

    Sir,
    It was sticky, and I thought that since it had been unstickified it was no longer wanted.
    As the season draws to an end, new reports will appear in Ride Reports, and I'll include the best ones here.
    I'll also go through the old ones to verify that the images still load, and so on.

    Thank you for your support!

    Hello everone,

    I have never camped in Europe but intend to do a fair bit soon.

    What are the general legal rules in Europe ( Alps) when it comes to pitching your tent somewhere for the night?



    Cheers,
    Arek

    A quick search led to this thread. Wild Camping in Europe

    No, I haven't read through it all to see if it answers your question
