TLM's Summer Ride
Saturday July 3rd 2021 - Summer Ride
Finally we have come to the point that we can organize something again!! Therefore, we have set out a nice route for Saturday July 3rd, which you can drive. The start and end point of the ride is our location on the Lagelandseweg in Nijmegen and the route largely runs through the Achterhoek. A good opportunity to go out and meet old acquaintances or to meet new faces. Afterwards you can enjoy a cozy barbecue (participation for a fee).
And…. even if you don't ride a Moto Guzzi you are welcome to participate!
08:30 - TLM open
09:30 - Reception, drinking coffee and forming row groups
10:00 - Advice departure time Summer route
16:30 - Lighting the BBQ
You can start driving the Summer Route from 10:00. For safety reasons, we recommend riding in groups of no more than four motorcycles. Do not make the person in front responsible unintentionally and make sure you have the route (GPS or on paper) on your motorcycle! The route made available is intended as an advisory route and you are not obliged to follow it 100%. If the circumstances do not allow it, then deviate from it and choose for your own safety. You are riding the route individually and always at your own responsibility.
When you return to Nijmegen, the BBQ will be lit from 16:30 on and you can participate for only € 12.50 per person. If you want to take part, we kindly ask you to indicate this in advance via e-mail or the form below. Participation in the tour is of course free of charge and without any obligation!
We have the (indicative) route available in gpx format (route + track) for most Garmin and TomTom navigation systems. You can download them below and save them on your own computer. To download these, right-click on the links and select "save as...". With a program such as Basecamp or My Route App (successor to Tyre), you can also go through the route in advance by using the track as a reference (recommended, because every device, map, etc. will sometimes indicate different routes). The route also includes ferries so make sure those are enabled on your GPS.
Length of the route: approx. 270 Km (a small part through Germany, so take a passport or ID card and green card with you and refuel for a cheap price!)
After about 100 km (aprox. 2.5 hours travel time) there are some locations where you can have lunch or have a coffee, such as cafe-snack bar Misterpoort in Brredevoort and De Domme Aanleg between Breedevoort and Lichtevoorde. Both venues have a terrace.
If you want to have a drink somewhere in the afternoon, you can do that in the town of Zeddam, which you reach after about 190 km on the route.
Length of the route: 275 Km
Effective driving time : 6.5 hours
Here are the digital route files, which you can download and put in your own navigation device:

To follow the route as precisely as possible, set your navigation system as follows; Profile Motorcycle, Shortest time, to avoid: Avoid U-turns, Carpool lanes, Narrow Tracks and Dirt roads. Do not avoid ferries. The map was made in Basecamp on map CN 2021.20
