  1. What's new in this club
  2. Alfa4. totally agree, all my trips are a round trip and never going back on the same roads...widens the scope of places to visit
  3. Just enjoy seeing different places on the journey and never return the same roads
  4. For me, it's the journey that is the most important factor of the road trip, along with the various towns and villages you stop at en-route. Have encountered many experiences (good and bad) on past trips and it's certainly a steep learning curve and finding out what to do and not to do on future trips.
  5. Why do you Road Trip? Is is the journey, the destination or just the experience? List your reasons below
  6. TAKE THE STRESS AND RISK OUT OF YOUR EUROPEAN ROAD JOURNEYS ROAD SAFETY and breakdown organisation GEM Motoring Assist has published advice for staying safe and secure on European road journeys this year. The advice takes the form of six top tips covering planning, equipment, safety, legal matters and security issues. Neil Worth, road safety officer at GEM Motoring Assist, said: “The European motorway network is excellent and extensive, but it’s important to ensure that you and your vehicle are safe and legal before you drive off the ferry for a family holiday or busine

  9. Route 66, known as the Mother Road starts in Chicago and travels 300 miles through Illinois. Take it to Joliet and visit the historic Rialto Theater that plays host to world-class entertainment. Stop off at diners who specialize in delicious, homemade food, and visit Starved Rock, voted Illinois' number one attraction, with its huge bluffs, deep canyons and majestic waterfalls.
  10. Which ones have you done from the above Alfa4 ? I have previously done the following (sometimes more than once): 1, 2, 4, 5, 11, 12, 15, 19 However, am looking to do the following in the near future: 6, 8, 10, 13, 16, 17 Chomping at the bit for the restrictions not to be there early next year and finally get out on the road 🙂

  12. Led Zeppelin 1 Led Zeppelin 2 Led Zeppelin 3 Led Zeppelin 4 ...need I go on? 🙂
  13. List your ideal Road Trip tunes to play on your journey
  14. Here's a list of European Road Trips to consider for the future 1. Autobahn, Germany The Autobahn is Germany’s famed highway system where there are no speed limits in non-urban regions. It gives drivers the option to really put the pedal to the metal while traveling the beautiful German countryside. 2. Route 500, Germany This beautiful drive cuts through the midst of the Black Forest, and offers drivers incredible views along with a smooth journey through the mountains. This picturesque route from Feldberg to Waldkirch is almost 70 km long and on a clear day offers awe-inspiring

  17. Yes definitely cant wait to do the European trip we had planned for this year.
  18. Well we can honestly say that 2020 was not a good year for Road Trips. However, 2021 surely has to be the ultimate year for travelling by car rather than by air to far flung destinations. Will this be the case though with Covid restrictions still being in place and also restricted travel to foreign countries being levied on the British population in the post-Brexit months? We think that Road Trips are the way forward....certainly when it comes to 'stretching our legs' after all the lockdown periods in 2020. Europe still wants Tourists and we still want to go abroad and spend our mon
  19. Route taking in the historic, derelict Reims-Gueux circuit in the Champagne region of France. Next onto the legendary Spa-Francorchamps circuit which is nestled in the Ardennes, Belgium. Finally onto the world-famous Nurburgring circuit in Germany. Directions from Circuit du Reims-Gueux to Nürburgring.kmz
  20. Hope to do a road trip to Europe in February/March....Covid and Brexit permitting
  21. Never really considered Switzerland for a road trip to be honest. But may have to look into it after I've completed my other ideal road trips.
  22. I have done the Italian Lakes before on my motorbike but made a schoolboy error in thinking they are easy to drive round not realising the view is pretty much the same all round with the exception of some lovely towns and villages scattered throughout the coast road. The biggest mistake was not realising that they are usually 30mph all the way round which is nice to take in the views but takes forever to get round the lake 😞
  23. Wonder when this trip will be possible to do ? Would love to do the Italian lakes 😀
  24. I attend this race event every year (last 13 years in a row) and will go for as long as they run it and I'm still vertical. Has to be the best race event on the calendar for not just the 24 hours racing and other events but just the spectacle and atmosphere. Can highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys motorsport
