Advice and opinions required....Where to go?

Hi Folks,
I was wondering if you could help me out with a few ideas regarding a trip i've been "nominated" to organize. The trip is for around May next year and there are twelve of us (middle aged and counting! ). We intend to leave Hull by overnight ferry for either Zeebrugge or Rotterdam and spend one night in Europe. Obviously there are restrictions due to the time allowed but it is basically a long weekend, so range is important. Holland Belgium and France are the likely suspects but i am open to ideas. A night time destination is required that will take twelve of us and various points of interests to and from the ferry. Our interests are motor sports and Military to name a few.
Do you have any lists or references that contain "good ride outs" in these areas. Good roads are important, we don't do Toll roads and will keep motorways to a minimum.
In the past you have featured excellent articles in your publication regarding trips abroad, so is there any way i can access these for ideas.
I am a newbie to all this and although i've done solo trips, group travel and teamwork ride outs are foreign to me. (please excuse the pun! )
Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Joe Taylor.

weekend rides

I would ride further south and catch the dover ferry, around £30 return compared to approx £330 for hull, and explore Normandy, you will then be near La Sarthe and have the D Day Beaches nearby
