    It's pretty good and capable of offering up routes over long distances, perfect for all those, “Tell me great twisty roads (no motorways) between Calais and.... um... Lisbon” type posts.

    Above all it's quick (useful when a bod - and his seven or more mates - is off on Monday morning and it’s already 11:30 PM on Sunday night) and exports neatly straight into BaseCamp on a Mac.

    Do though take care and check the routes it offers up, as it sometimes takes some odd little roads that you might find it better to ignore. I always try to check my routes; I particularly check routes or tracks that come via a third party. Five minutes at home is much easier than 45 minutes, buggering around on the side of the road, a long way away.

    I hope to do a few of the routes listed although they are a bit sketchy.
    Any recommendations on accommodation or good locations in that region appreciated. We will be going for three nights so considering staying in one spot and doing ride outs or stopping in three locations.
    A centre point in the region would probably be Dinant maybe. Never been to Belgium so any ideas welcome.
    Are you still going?

    Where are you staying?

    4 hours from Calais, 10 minutes from Spa...….

    Last year we did Calais to Bruges (lunch), then Bruges to Ghent for first night, Ghent to Spa second day / night, Third day Spa to Bethune, France,

    Fourth day home...… Stayed off motorways most of the trip, nothing too hectic but a nice few days away.

    Thanks to Wapping

    Just back from three days in Belgium. Had a great time. Very good roads and friendly folk.
    Special thanks to Wapping for plotting the Wallonia round trip (mentioned earlier in this thread). It was an excellent days ride. I used kurviger while I was there and found it really useful. We stayed in Dinant and plotted a good route down to Bastogne War Museum.
    Definitely going back.
