When stationed in Germany I found a three day tour in Normandy, France and Bastogne, Belgium on alternate years that celebrates the D-Day landing and liberation of Europe during WWII. Its called the Voie de la Liberte. Its not advertised much and mostly word of mouth. I’ve done it twice in each area, and its the best tour I’ve ever done. Great food and wine included for lunch each day, fully sagged, free repair help, stops at histrical landmarks with speeches by local Mayors and Veterans and so much more. If you’re a history buff or just want to try something different I recommend this ride. You stay in one town, Periers,Normandy France and Bastogne Belgium, and then head out each morning on a different route. It’s on the weekend closest to the 6th of June and the routes follow the roads the Allies took to liberate the continent through France and the siege of Bastogne. During the ride the small village streets fill with people to celebrate your arrival. Small children eagerly await the American riders to toss candy to them as the soldiers did when they liberated each town. So make sure you have candy to toss out, its tradition on this ride.
