This sounds good! Are we all invited?
Yep. The crew at Twin Power really do go out of their way to show us a good time.
The last few years, they have ridden out to Cassel to meet us, then provide a marshalled ride in to the farm, stopping at one of the historic battle grounds/ cemetaries from WW1. The year that we rode through the Menin Gate in Ypres will stay with me forever.
Last year, the numbers from the UK were low, due to a variety of conflicting dates, but let's make this year another one to remember.
These friends of ours in Belgium put on a great party and deserve our support.
I have loved every year of our trips to Lauwe. The first one was special because it was the first obviously.
Since then, every year we have had an escorted ride to Lauwe from Cassel by the brilliant Belgian crew who go out of their way to make us feel welcome, showing us proudly how they as a nation tend the war graves and preserve the memories of those who fought for our freedom. Every year they find a different route and another story to tell. As Mojomick says, the Menin Gate ride was memorable and I will make another trip to see it properly very soon.
