Mapsman have teamed up with fellow adventurers and motorcycle touring company White Rose Tours to provide a suggestion of additional maps and guides to accompany their tours for 2020.
To be expected from a quality tour operator White Rose Tours provide detailed turn by turn instructions and GPS maps for the tour but we believe it is always useful to have a map or two as well.

Beaches Lakes and Mountains - a great tour in Croatia, Slovenia and Italy
At the request of our customers we have returned to this popular tour for 2020. However, this year there will be a slight change in that we will be running the tour 'back to front'. We have also moved the tour forward slightly as we know many of you are tied into the school holidays. This tour takes in Croatia, Slovenia and Italy three of our favourite countries that offer fantastic scenery, great biking roads and good value for money.
We start our tour with either an Eurotunnel or Hull crossing to an overnight stop mid France. Crossing the Vosges mountains we pass through the southern Black Forest to a second night on the German/Austrian border. The Austrian Tyrol is next, as we have the opportunity to ride Silvetretta before crossing the Timmelsjoch into the Italian Dolomites.
A two night stop gives us a day to explore the mountains or take a ride-out to the stunning Lake Garda. On departure, we get to ride more of the Dolomites as we head east into Slovenia, where we ride the challenging mountain roads of the Triglav National Park on our way to our 5 star hotel on the Adriatic Coast.
You have 3 nights to relax in 5 star luxury at this lovely hotel in a popular seaside resort. In previous years nobody moved far, but if you want to ride, there are a chain of bridges and ferries that allow you to island hop or perhaps a touch of history with a visit to the Roman Ampitheatre in Pula.
Suitable refreshed we return via Innsbruck and Saarbrucken to the crossing of your choice.
Although the tour has many rest days, it will involve some long days and technical mountain roads, we therefore recommend it primarily for experienced riders who have ridden on the continent before.
This is an Escorted Tour which means that although the guide will be with you, you are responsible for doing your own navigation. We provide a Tour Pack which will include a full itinerary, suggested route directions, Gpx waypoints and hotel location. This system suits many people, as it allows them to ride at their own pace and style, either alone or in small groups. However, if you prefer, you may ride with the guide, who will act as your escort throughout the tour.
