In partnership with http://www.outbike.com.au/ I wil personally guide “Armistice tour” or ‘tour de Front’ again in 2020. For 2019 I offer a short version with vehicle tranfer between cities.
From the North Sea (in Belgium) we follow the old front line to Compiègne where the Armistice was signed. From there we push on to the 1918 French – German - Swiss border.
