Velomobile Tour Updates! Oslo-to-Berlin: 20 riders; Great Baltic Sea Ride: 18 riders

The Olso-to-Berlin tour is holding steady at 20 riders, and The Great Baltic Sea Ride is down to 18 riders.  Both tours have suffered some cancellations due to injury or family priorities.  We hope all the affected riders will be able to join us in future tours!

To clear up some confusion about booking a position in a tour

Once you have successfully registered for the website, and activated your account, you can book your entry for a tour in several ways:

  • Use the list of up coming events on the right side of the page, below the calendar, to choose the event you want to join.  When at that page, you should see a ‘booking form’ at the bottom of the page.
  • Or select “Events”, then “Short” or “Long” Tours, then the tour you are interested in.  So, for example, if I wanted to join the EuroTour, I would click through:  Events->Long Tours->EuroTour 2014: Oslo to Berlin.

Once you have made a booking, an administrator will be notified and can then approve/reject your booking.  You will receive a email confirming your booking, regardless of status.

Reserve your ferry ride to Oslo!

As C.G. points out in his recent post in the forum, reserving a spot on the ferry for you and your velomobile from Copenhagen to Oslo will likely be cheaper now than later.

Tour updates!

The GBSR tour is up to 21 participants, with 18 confirmed.  EuroTour2014:OtB is up to 25 riders.  This looks to be a good year for velomobile touring!

Josef Janning over at the GBSR website notes that due to all the nonsense going on involving Russia, his tour route has changed to avoid the Kaliningrad enclave..  If you are riding that tour, make sure to be up-to-date on the changes:

Forum discussions related to the EuroTour are starting to show some life regarding the route, camping, food, and places to see.  Don’t forget to look through the forum for any changes, and don’t be afraid to post your ideas, opinions, and concerns!
