It’s about 240 miles from Zeebrugge to Mehring and 260 miles from Mehring to Rotterdam. Each circular tour is about 160 miles long, so there will be plenty of time for us to take photos, and have coffee, lunch and tea.

The ferry crossings, if booked today (30/10/16) at the Saver rate, would cost £137.88 each way. That’s for one bike, and one person in one cabin. You can make the crossings a lot cheaper, if you arrange to share a cabin. Please make your own ferry bookings, remembering that on 8th April we’re going on the Hull-Zeebrugge service and on 15th April we sail home on the Rotterdam-Hull service.

They have a large and a small garage and room under cover at the back – easily enough for ten bikes and probably more, depending on how people park up.

Rooms are available on a first-come-first-served basis, and not just to people in our group, so if you’re interested, I’d advise you to book very soon. If you wish to keep costs to a minimum, you may wish to make an arrangement with another person or persons to share a twin or family room. Please contact the hotel yourself to make a booking. Details are on its contact page. The owner, Frau Bach, can take your booking in English, whether on-line or by phone.

When you’ve made your ferry and hotel bookings, please tell me by email at that you have done so and I’ll keep publishing an up-to-date list of participants on our RAM riders Facebook group and on RAM’s website.

Yours

Mike Jordan
