5 DAY BLACK FOREST B500 ESCORTED MOTORCYCLE TOUR IN GERMANY
Stunning long sweeping bends, beautiful mountain scenery and gorgeous little towns and villages
The Black Forest Motorcyle Tour isn’t just for speed demons. Because we use a drop off system, it allows all riders of varying abilities to ride at their own pace. There is no need to feel you are being left behind or holding the rest of the group up. Our Escorted Black Forest Germany Motorcycle Tour is an incredible route for bikers who like roads with ribbon like tarmac and race track style bends! You will experience a unique route created by Guided Motorbike Tours that captivates some of the best roads in the Black Forest, in return giving you one hell of an adrenalin buzz!
The tour takes us through Belgium and into Luxembourg with a stop off (time pending) in the Ardennes Valley for lunch on day one. On the second day of the tour we make our way through the Black Forest, soaking up only the best, most scenic roads on offer. In addition to this daily schedule for the next three days we eat cake and drink coffee during the day and scoff some great meals during the evening along with some beers, German beers, or wine, whilst chatting over the fantastic and fun time we’ve had during the days riding, all escorted by one of our professional, fun, friendly and helpful tour guides who’ll also be on hand to offer anyone that requests it, advanced riding skills and tips to get the most out of your experience.
The scenery in the Black Forest is sublime, the roads are like black ribbons flowing through the tall pines that line many of the routes. We will also spend time on the famous B500, also known as the “Best biking road in Europe”, more so because it has some of the most inviting and exciting bends and straights, perfectly matched to give you a sense of being on a race track!
So take the plunge and dive on in, you can book online with a deposit and secure your place on one of the dates. The tour spaces do go fast (really they do!) so if you are keen to join this tour, don’t spend too much time thinking about it or you may regret it.
IS THIS SUITABLE FOR ME?
This is a road / tarmac based tour and does not have any off road riding. The tour is lead by a professional tour guide who will allow riders the flexibility to go on ahead or ride at their own pace if they wish. This is not a coach tour on two wheels! As long as you are a confident rider you will be ok. Last year we had two new riders and they coped brilliantly
WHAT ARE THE ROADS LIKE
The roads do allow you to pick up the pace due to the very nature of their bends, curves and hairpins. There are sections with tight bends and steep inclines and declines

DAY 1 - CALAIS TO NORD VOSGES
On the first day we meet in Folkestone at the Eurotunnel Terminal for 07.30 (Full details and instructions provided before hand), when we board the Eurotunnel (pre-booked for you by GMT) for France. We will then head through Belgium, Luxembourg and finally into France to the Nord Vosges Park. Staying in a wonderful hotel. We take a rest before heading for Germany.

Time: 5.45 without stops
Stops: Every 80 -100 miles
DAY 2 - BADEN BADEN / B500
We head east into Germany and start the the day riding through Baden Baden, probably the most exhilarating roads in the northern part of the Black Forest. There is a chance for a brief stop to see the worlds largest cuckoo clock! (Woohoo) before we head further on down along the B500 for more incredible perfect biking roads
Distance: 150 miles approx
Time: 4hrs without stops
DAY 3 - RHINE FALLS
Our day ended yesterday riding the B500. Today we head into Switzerland, only crossing the border briefly to visit the Rhine Falls
Spectacular waterfall is impressive and we take some time to take some photos and learn about the falls. From here we head north back into Germany and through the eastern side of the forest. There are more tree lined beautiful roads to ride before arriving at our hotel for the evening in the heart of the forest
Distance: 150 miles approx
Time: 4.5 hrs without stops
DAY 4 - BADEN BADEN - PONT-A-MOUSSON
On our last day before we head back to Calais aswe head back up the B500, the route in reverse is as exhilarating and exciting as it was coming down. Again, we get to see some wonderful scenic routes, some “off tourist” routes (our own unique routes with plenty of fun) and plenty of time to sit and relax with a coffee in the many cafes along the way, finished off with a beer when we get back to our hotel in the evening. On route we ride through Baden Baden and Nord Vosges National Park before stopping off just outside the town of Pont-A-Mousson
Distance: 198 miles approx
Time: 5hrs without stops
DAY 5 - REIMS GUEUX - CALAIS
Sadly, we head back to Calais to catch the Eurotunnel but there is a chance to pop in and see the Reims-Gueux. A 2 hour ride and some 140 miles from the hotel on route to Calais we will stop for a while to grab some photos and a bit of racing history to break up the day.
The circuit Reims-Gueux was a Grand Prix motor racing road course, located in Gueux, 7.5 km west of Reims in the Champagne region of north-eastern France, established in 1926 as the second venue of the Grand Prix de la Marne.
We arrive in Calais to catch the Eurotunnel some time in the late afternoon

DO YOU PROVIDE THE MAPS?
Yes, we provide a map file in GPX format for your sat nav for each day. We will provide guidance on how to import to your sat nav device if you are unfamiliar with this
WHAT ARE THE HOTELS LIKE?
The hotels are of good standard and not the usual coach tour style so often seen on other tours. Some hotels may have a spa or swimming pool so bring your bikini!
Where a rider is sharing a room with another rider, some hotels may have rooms that are classed as “doubles”, it is a large king or queen size double bed frame with single mattresses and single bedding (this is very typical of German and Austrian hotels and is unavoidable)
WHAT ARRANGEMENTS ARE MADE FOR EVENING MEALS
We can eat at the hotel or the tour guide will find somewhere close by that is recommended. Usually this is good quality food at a very reasonable price (£10 -15) per meal
WILL I BE LEFT AT THE PETROL STATION IF I AM LAST TO FILL UP?
No, we don’t leave anyone behind or struggling to catch up. It’s a policy we have adopted since day one and maintain this. We achieve this by using the Drop-Off System
WHAT DO THE RIDER STYLES MEAN?
We have several ways of grading our tours, they are as follows;
- Novice – For new riders and new tourers entering Europe
- Moderate – A typically standard pace within the speed limits
- Flexible – Allows riders to ride their own pace or go ahead and meet at a designated point if they are in the need to blast away the cobwebs
- Experienced – For confident riders typically with 3 years or more riding experience
- Advanced – IAM or RoSPA Certificated Riders or similar
- Adventure – Riders who have some off road experience and a suitable motorcycle
- Progressive – A progressive riding style tour that some may find challenging to keep up with the group if they have little experience or have not had advanced training
- Off Road – Typically this is when 30% or more of the tour is off tarmac and riders should have had experience riding off road
