Yeah, I know it's in the RTT12 area, I'll move it over when I figure out how to Dappers returns. rolleyes.gif
DONE ! Cheers Dappers !

Anyhoos, a few peeps have expressed an interest in having the RTT2013 in France so I thought it'd be a timely idea to start the provisional discussion thread.

Soooooo, get yer thoughts n ideas & reasons posted up peeps, camping, hotel, camping + hotel, how long for, when, and of course where.

Was anything discussed at the RTT12 ?

I am an hour from there at the moment - in Megeve.May take a ride over sometime this week and have a look.

At the RTT2012 - there was some talk of France - in the Ballons de Vosges. [Colmar/Mulhouse area. Superb roads and a bit closer than the Alps.

will be riding those roads in a couple of weeks Mark. We will be able to feedback on our return.

One of the downsides to the Vosges mountains however, is that they have their own micro climate - ie it pisses down a lot!

Visited them today.

Good bunk-house and they do accommodate a lot of German bikers. Nice guy showed me and the wife around. Area is fantastic. Big communal dining room and Garden area. Beer fridge.

However,
Montvilliers is 6 houses miles from anywhere. No option but to eat their food and drink their beer. Nothing withing walking distance, No self catering. No Camping.

From CARP [Carpe's Alpine Roving Patrol] - Traveling incognito on the GTR1400 for this couple of weeks:-

While traveling from Bourg St Maurice to Abbeville, I accidentally went up the St Bernard pass (31Km of twisties). Realised I had gone up the wrong-un when I saw the Italian border. Doh! Me and the wife had a picture with a plastic St. Bernard, then drove back down and took the correct route through Beaufort to Abbeville.

Called in to the above mentioned camp site today

Typical French Municipal; cheap, cheerful and clean.

3 minutes walk into Abbeville town centre, where there are loads of hotels and B&Bs for the not so rufty-tufty outdoor types like what I am.
