Re: Motorcycle rides out No4

cool, well i'm up for the ride that the google link shows -- i've ridden in that area before and I like it a lot. If it's the culture thing i'll skip it. Hope the weather is good! and that the wife feels like riding on the back

Hi all

I'd thought about joining, but I don't want you to change up your plans just for me (L rider for another month or so - whoops, gotta schedule that test). So I'll just catch you next time.

Cheers
Lance

I am not an L rider but recently got back on a bike after 20 years, so feel like an L rider
I'll be going on Sunday and will probably be more out of my depth than you


PS anyone from Zurich going?

It's actually more to do with the fact that I can't legally ride out of the country yet. But I'll be coming from Zurich.

Corbets, if you want to come, no problem, thats why we have 2 options. Do one sunday, other another weekend.. we usually take a few days to decide where we are going. The practice might do you some good. If you want to join, say so, and we'll do the tour in CH, I've never done that one either, so will be fun.

Xaphod, the kulture was the bike museum :-)

Chris
Ok, I'm in, as long as y'all don't mind.

Is that Illnau Effretikon if so...

I'm based in Ebmatingen so I can go either way- jump on the motorway at Dubendorf or pop over the hill into Zurich

I could meet you at the Migroline petrol station just by Glatt Centrum or we could go across country which is'nt too bad on an early Sunday morning into Zurich

Re: Motorcycle rides out No4

Ok

Thats the decision made, we are doing the Ost tour, the route Paulo posted the google link for.

Meeting point: 10 am Service Station Würenlos on motorway ZH --> Bern (between ZH and Baden)

Robert, can you just confirm the service station on Northbound side if we are starting in Lenzberg area.

Re: Motorcycle rides out No4

That's ok, from service station Würenlos, direction Bern/Basel, it's about 20 km on the motorway A1 to the exit Lenzburg.

On the motorway follow directions to Bern, DO NOT turn right towards Basel.

Kulture trip sounds good- I came up with this one for a more centrally based ride but I have never done it myself

Lenzburg-Egliswil-Meisterschwanden-Hitzkirch-Hochdorf-Hildisrieden-Sandplatten-Bartswill-Hellbuhl-Malters-Schachen-Rengg-Entlebach-Hasle-Schupfheim-Escholzmatt-Marbach-Schangnau-Schallenberg-Oberei-Rothenbach-Eggiwil-Heidbuel-Langnau iE-Gohl-Wasen ie-Sumiswald-Weier-Huttwil-Zell-Ettiswil-Sursee-Geunsee-Triengen-Winikon-Bottenwil-Verkheim-Holziken-Schoftland-Unterkulm-Teufenthal-Durrenasch-Halwill-Seon-Lenzburg.

Not sure length or time to take on it but looks a good mix of cruising and climbing

Totally open on ideas though.
Paolo's list shows the direction. We'll be on the home run passing Schöftland.

Re: Motorcycle rides out No4

Ignore Colin, he doesn't do numbers past 5 :-)

It should be about 5 hour run, not including our stops :-)

RPF, any ideas on where to have lunch ??

Ok, so for the directionally impaired (that's why I have a GPS....) can I assume that the service station Würenlos on the A1 is rather near to the town Würenlos? Just checking...

I'll be there at 10 on Sunday. I'm on the white/black BMW F800R.... oh, wait, just look my profile picture. Little blue square next to the plate (with an "L" for "Lance"....).

Not yet, however, Schallenberg used to be a popular place for bikers (and speed traps).

I may be going on a test run tomorrow.

Re: Motorcycle rides out No4

I think that it is the services with the sodding big Movenpick sign over it- if not then ignore this

If it is, whose taking the gazebo and grub that we can rendezvous at that will have bacon sarnies and a coffee on to go
