OK a couple of us are possibly leaving on the Thursday and arriving in Rotterdam on friday morning (09:00) via Hull so if your ferry docks in the AM we could meet up and ride to the venue as a group.

Would be great if regardless of route taken we all arrive at the venue together on Friday afternoon, Ive heard the Euro Intruder guys put on a good do so lets try and arrive in style??

Maybe there should be a predefined place to meet up for the big ride in on Friday?? I know there are multiple arrival dates, arrival ports etc. but maybe we could all meet up in Amsterdam or something like that?? I don't know Amsterdam at all but there must be a place we could gather over a period of a couple of hours?

Same here, not 100% sure where I'm sailing from yet, depends what day the guys leave in the North East, will be Hull otherwise, but would be awesome to ride "mob handed" once we are on mainland Europe.

Hi if I'm going I will be traveling down to Dover it's a great run upto Amsterdam from there being a international truck driver I know the roads well plus the cost of ferry from up north is way over the top plus the cost of ferry return from Dover is only £68
And it's a 3hrs-30min ride up bit longer if you go coast route . I will keep you informed and we can meet up and go together

@Richy Y wrote:I think I have mentioned this before, when we went to Belgium and I was going on my own, the price was £217.  When Dave and Mark decided to go it brought the price down to £155 and that included breakfast and evening meal in both directions.

Which ever way everyone decides to go I think that the more going on whichever route you choose should drive the price down by doing a block booking.

As some one has already mentioned, instead of blocking this thread, I will open a new one, "The Toon to Amsterdam, June 2016".  If you wish to join us on this route will you add your name(s) and when we think we have the numbers I will inquire about the price.  We can then decide on which day we leave and when we will return, places to stay, things to see etc.  We can also make arrangements to meet with the others who are travelling from other routes and ride into the event in one big group on the Friday.

If others want to start other threads for their chosen routes, we can keep this thread for keeping all who are going informed.  Looking forward to this more than Christmas. Very Happy

Yeah count us in Richy we'll go from the Toon, did think about the Hull port but what the hell is another hour up to your neck of the woods.

Like everyone's said use the ferry ports your comfortable with and we'll sort out meeting up across the water later, and as Paul says it would be good if we could get the IOCUK contingent all together to ride in as one dance

Well for the first time since Southampton, I might, it is not definite yet, make Holland.  At this moment I am looking to travel on the Thursday via the Chunnel and be at the venue on the same day. So as to meet up with our Dutch friends early and have a few beers with them in the evening. I cannot go sooner because of time restraints and I have family commitments on the 16th June so I’ll have to travel back to UK on the Sunday.  Anyone going East on the A303 on that Thursday I can meet them at the Cartgate roundabout rest area at the Yeovil turning and travel to Dover with them.  Other than that I will see everybody there.  To go as a whole group is excellent but all the other ports are too far me for such a short stay except possibly Harwich.  I haven’t as yet looked at any ferry prices.  If I am on my own I think meeting up somewhere on the Friday and arriving as a group is a great idea, but may be difficult to achieve.
Cheers and ride safe.

I have made a block booking for 9 of us in 5 cabins from The Toon to Amsterdam. Works out at £201 each which includes our evening meal, considering it's a 16 1/2 crossing I don't think it's to bad.

I've got a mission to go on in Germany so if I can get the time off I'll be going through the tunnel on Wednesday  8th June & stopping somewhere near Hamm (about 500 miles from my place).
Then on Thursday 9th June completing my mission in Germany & riding to somewhere on the Dutch border for the night.
Friday 10th June hope to meet up with some of you & ride in to the venue.
Saturday / Sunday, fun & games. dance drunk roll on floor laughi spank cheers sofa hide massive hug sheep shagger (sorry Dave ) lol.
Monday 13th stop off near Calais for the night.
Tuesday 14th cross over to dear old Blighty & steady ride home.
All in all around 1600 to 1800 miles eyebrows
