It is intended for riders who may find it helpful to know that other riders are heading for the same destination at the end of each day. The REOC is not offering a formalised or led ride to its International Rally 2023. There is no obligation to join in at any stage.

IMPORTANT; Quoted European sailing times are based on current 2022 schedules. Please check times before travel. In case you have not made European accommodation bookings before it may be worth visiting www.booking.com/hotels. If you have concerns about security of your motorcycle during hotel stays you can simply scroll down the page of your chosen hotel in order to view parking facilities on the website. Nearer to the time we will open a WhatsApp group to share suggestions between anyone wishing to meet up for evening meals on route. Thank you to Gordon May for input and advice.
