"Tour de Front"

In partnership with http://www.outbike.com.au/ I wil personally guide the 2018 “Armistice tour” or ‘tour de Front’.

 

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.

 

See also http://www.outbike.com.au/tourdefront.html . The whole tour takes 18 days of riding and 2 or 3 days of rest. You can choose to ride the full ride or part of the tour. Ask for the details and we send you an XL file.
