• Every September the people of Arnhem show respect

    We ride to join them

    Join us now!

  • How to get there

    The choice is yours.  We have travelled through the tunnel and others have used the ferries.  It all depends where you are starting from.

    In 2017 there are a number of us who have decided to take the overnight ferry from Harwich to the Hook of Holland.  It should mean that we arrive in Arnhem fresh and ready for the weekend.

     

  • Where to stay

    Again, it is up to you but the "main body" stays at the Oostappen Vakantiepark Arnhem.

    This has the advantage of being cheap and centrally located for the rides.

    Chalets are around 180 euros for a six berth, so by joining up and sharing, the cost comes out at only 30 euros a person!

    More details will be posted on here as we get closer to the date.

  • Arnhem Schedule

    Titch Cornish is the driving force behind the annual pilgrimage.  Thanks to his efforts and organisation, we now have an established, annual ride to Arnhem.  He has made links with the local motorcycle club and the Red Beret Riders (Dutch Airborne veterans).  So all three organised rides are combined with them. 

    As for the whole event...We are bikers!!  Usual rule applies: everybody is responsible for themselves.  We appreciate you may want to explore on your own, but if you want to join us then we have developed a methodology.

    We announce which route we are taking to get to Arnhem and, if you want, you can join us and go the same way.  If you want to travel by another route then that's fine.  We stay at Ooostappen and, as before, you could book the same or go your own way.

    Once we are in Arnhem we have three specific rides that we participate in.

    1.  Ride of Remembrance - led by the local bikers we ride to various small cemeteries to pay our respects.  (Friday)

    2.  Ride to the Dropping Zone - led by our dear friends, the Red Beret Riders (Dutch Airborne Vets) (Saturday)

    3.  Ride to the Sunday Service at Oosterbek (Sunday)

    We will publish the start place and time of the RVs, then off we go!

    They are great rides with the right mixture of fun and seriousness, and loads of good riding (especially Friday, 30 ft up on the dykes that protect the villages, riding the curves!  Fabulous!)
