My son Mat had a week’s holiday free in mid-June and suggested that we a take bike trip. We’d ridden together previously in the UK and Spain but Mat fancied a trip that would take in the beloved biker road, the B500 in the Black Forest. A bit of research and Magellan came back with a trip that fitted the bill perfectly.
Checking on the forecast, as you do, warned us that the weather wasn’t going to be too good but we thought ‘hey it’s June, it’s summer, we’re heading South into Europe and the forecast isn’t always right is it?’
The trip had begun the previous day with the ride down to Hythe for an overnight stop. We refuelled and rode the couple of miles to the Tunnel terminal.
