Bike trip into Belgium/France

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. Me and some friends are doing a bike trip over the D-Day weekend in June next year. The plan is to do Ypres, the Normandy landing beaches, Merville battery and finishing off at Pegasus bridge on D-Day itself. My question is has anyone done this before as I would like to know roughly what time scale we're looking at. We've been told by a coach driver that we could comfortably do it in 4 days if we didn't spend too much time in Ypres (which I'm told is easily done).

    Any help (routes, recommended camp stops, etc) or even some advice on maybe doing things in a different order would be appreciated.

    Thanks, TBM
