    Hi all,

    Calling all ADV riders in the tri-lander ecke (the corner between France, Germany and Switzerland) who want to take their ADV bikes offroad. I live in basel and want to get a group together to heaad to the morvan forest on the weekend once or twice a month, and get once a year a group to do parts of the TET.

    Is about a 3 hour ride from Basel and is an offroad playground.

    Idea is meet in Basel about 6pm on a Friday night, ride to the forest and camp or stay in a hostal, ride 2 days and be back in basel Sunday evening.

    Best suited to ADV bikes which can carry all the gear needed for camping, however, if you have an enduro and a trailer then come along too.

    Drop me a line if this is interesting. (You can answer in German or French, no problems).

    There are also other areas in the limousine, rhone alps and further afield on the atlantic coast we can do. we got the bikes, lets do the rides.

    Cheers

    Max

    The closest thing to Starbucks is the Migrol Petrol Station in Interlaken East. They have a Sturbucks coffee machine

    Woah! That's actually quite a ride away. Something like nearly 3 hours away on motorways

    Was overthe weekend in Greifensee and would like to rest in this area but my/our income in Germany would mean the camping ground for the rest off the year but the peoples are more than nice !

    As long as it is sunny and above 4C, no chance of ice, and I have time off from the family, I will be out there clocking some km for my new bike.

    Anyone care to join me? Z├╝rich/Zug areas.
    I can also go to Interlaken. It's a tourer, remember?
    Sunday afternoon?
