    Wapping's Wanders 2013 - Number 1 - Easter

    Subject to hotel booking, plague, the state of the nation and anything else, I propose and have already booked:

    OUT: Thursday 28 March - Departure time 18:50

    BACK: Monday 01 April - Departure time 18:36

    £46

    =====

    Plan:

    (1) For a change, go over the evening (Thursday) before and stay overnight in St Omer, probably in the Ibis which is (if nothing else) central. This saves us one hour, plus the crossing time. Probably grab something to eat in the town or take a sandwich and find a beer.

    (2) Skip the excuse for a breakfast that Ibis offer, to make an earlyish start between 08:00 and 08:30.... Hopefully closer to eight.

    Stop for breakfast or whatever, somewhere en-route.

    (3) The plan will be to take some scenic and probably indirect (hence the earlyish start) roads to the northern end of the Ardennes, hopefully to somewhere like Vianden in Luxembourg.

    https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=via...gl=uk&t=m&z=12

    Staying in, I hope, a Logis type hotel.

    Something like one of these, probably:

    http://www.logishotels.com/hotel/lux...l-vianden.html

    (4) Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in Vianden, or wherever. This will give us two full days in the northern Ardenne area. There are plenty of good roads to ride and, of course, all the usual Battle of the Bulge sites.

    (5) Monday, back to home.

    =====

    Suitable for: Anyone who can ride a bike. I will prepare suitable Garmin routes and we can use the marker drop-off system.

    Numbers: Dictated more by the availability of hotel space than anything else. Let's say six to eight bikes, pillions welcome, subject to me being able to book some rooms. It is the easter weekend, so I will need to get on the case before too long.

    I think I will start by trying to reserve: Two doubles, two singles and two twins (that's 10 bods and as far as my fingers allow me to count) and then see how we get on.

    If Wanderers could indicate if they are happy to share, please do so. It often makes booking easier.

    Richard

    Woooooo hoooooo, the hotel Petry in Vianden - it even has a picture of a motorcycle outside - has confirmed my (anticipated) bookings

    http://www.hotel-petry.com/english/index.html

    Now just to get a firm list of Wanderers and room demands.......



    PS We can leave St Omer for a bit.

    Hello again.

    Progress, of a sort.

    I have confirmed provisionally to the Vianden hotel that I would like:

    • One double room - dxtans


    • Two single rooms - karlp and NLC


    • One twin room - Snow White (so we have a spare place)


    One room for me

    All on bed and breakfast basis

    So far we have five bikes, so could probably manage one more from UKGSer as I want to hold a couple of places spare for chums from another site.

    =========

    At some point I will set about finding us a hotel for the Thursday night, too.

    Cheers,

    Richard
