MOTORBIKE RIDES THROUGH WESTERN EUROPE
Motorcycle Journeys through Western Europe
by Toby Ballentine
Toby Ballentine has created THE quick and easy tour guide for motorcycling in Western Europe with 15 specific tours, a Band of Brothers tour and a Grand Tour this is an excellent book for anyone considering touring Europe by motorcycle
From the Renaissance hilltop towns of Tuscany and the Italian Riviera to the Basque country of Spain, to the chateaus on the Loire in France, or to the Black Forest of Germany, this book will help you discover the real Europe that has existed for centuries.
While most travel guides focus on what to do and where to go in the cities, this book leads you to the small towns and villages connected by interesting back roads through remote, scenic countryside. Each of the rides is based on a cultural or historical theme such as the running of the bulls in Spain, a D-Day tour in France, castles in the Loire River valley, and a Band of Brothers tour from France to Austria.
All are illustrated with stunning full-colour photographs. There are overview maps of the route and full descriptions as well as practical information on where to rent motorcycles (if you need to), driving customs, money, camping, inexpensive accommodation, and where to sample regional cuisine.
We have also put together bundles of the book and the correct Michelin maps for each of the tours to provide you with more detail and to take with you on your adventure.
