"Europe is a molehill" - Napoleon Bonaparte

Description

Considering this epic adventure is set across 7 countries and 2 continents this quote is quite apt! The expedition takes us from West to East on the trail of one of history's most famous conquerers. Join us on this ride of historical proportions as we ride in the footsteps of Napoleon from Paris to Saint Petersburg.

Divided into 3 stages the Napoleon tour is an exploratory epic ranging the length of Europe into the heart of Russia following in the footsteps of Napoleon's near 700,000 strong Grande Armee. We will ride across the Champagne region of France into the picturesque castle clad green hills of southern Germany. Our route then takes us through UNESCO protected medieval villages in Poland to the North Sea. From here we strike east via the great lakes of Poland and The Baltics. We arrive in St Petersburg, a city Napoleon never took, but a must on a Russian odyssey. Then south to Saint Petersburg on the all Russian final stage!

Experience total immersion into the landscape, history and culture of the places we visit as we ride this inspirational trail on the road less travelled.

The Napoleon Epic Adventure is divided into 3 distinct stages and you can choose to do any or all of them. For those of you wishing to do the full journey we call this the 'Grande Armee', the name of the army commanded by Napoleon during the Napoleonic Wars. The Grande Armee scored a streak of historic victories that gave the French Empire an unprecedented grip on power over the European continent.

We work around the changeover days between stages being on Saturdays. These are rest days for those riding on. The Saturday in the middle of each stage is also a rest day. Therefore each stage has 2 potential rest days (optional riding available for those who simply can't get enough!) On the rest and changeover days we try to stay in interesting towns which have all the practical facilities available (laundromat, atms etc). This doesn't mean that you cannot take a rest any other day! The van is always available.
